This clip is made like a music-video. So many cuts made with only a few seconds. It's impossible to enjoy this beautiful watch. Why are you not able to make an enjoyable slow video. What's the sense behind?

The most expensive watch I've ever owned was a Seiko, $200. I can't imagine owning a $500,000 watch. Even if I were wealthy, I'd still own a watch costing no more that $1,000.

Guys, it's not just a watch, it's art! It's like those paintings that cost a million bucks. Basically saying that you wouldn't buy this watch because any other watchcan tell time is like saying you wouldn't buy a painting because your walls already has paint

Beautiful and (realistically) useless object of vanity. It is easy to imagine the person that is able to buy one of these could be less interested in the art and craftsmanship involved in it than in the fact that he can brag about having one without being too obvious of course (or at least, feel confident that he is not left out when measuring up against other bored and pretentious millionaires). But hey, at least in this specific case they are not founding any of those horrible pieces of (pseudo) art that need an introductory course to begin to understand why their horribleness has any value at all.
