I also love the mix of tradition and ├╝ber technology in mechanical watches. Check out this cad image from a Jaeger LeCoultre Gyrotourbillon

And here's a macro photo of the movement:

BTW $74k for an HM3 is probably a "good investment", if you can find one. You can certainly pay considerably more for boutique watches!
