Jaeger-LeCoultre had no trouble selling 30 units of its Hybris Mechanica Grande Sonnerie in a case that would be way too big to fit in a suitcase.
The Grande Sonnerie collection weighs in at a daunting €2 million ($2.9 million), and Jaeger's sales staff argues that the sheer complexity and beauty of this watch make it worth the asking price. It plays Westminster's carillon melody—it sounds like bells, and that's just one of 55 "complications" across the three watches in this safe that sets collectors drooling.
They also say this collectors' edition safe is "cheap," as it includes a Gyrotourbillon and a Reverso à Tryptique that would cost, respectively, around €375,000 ($547,099) and €340,000 ($496,036) to buy separately, and they're just the supporting cast. My own much-cheaper watch can go 50 meters underwater, but I didn't have the nerve to ask whether that was better than what theirs can do.
