In this episode, Cameron and Matt explore the world of complicated watches. A complication is any function that a mechanical watch performs besides simply displaying the time, such as a chronograph, or, most commonly, a date window. We start with the basics and then show advanced annual and perpetual calendar complications, check out the "Master of Complication" Franck Muller's bizarre watches, the new Rolex Skydweller, the incredible JLC Duometre that is really two watches in one, and a Memovox mechanical alarm watch! We also discuss how moon phase complications work, "minute repeater" chiming watches, and the half-million dollar Grand Complication watches that can only be serviced by the one person who made them.
