I believe an iPhone takes a lot more delicacy and finesse for its components to be built and assembled. This is just a dying attempt to sell a (relatively) simple mechanical system (probably designed on a computer! and CNC machined, too) for an exorbitant price.

What time is it? me; putting my sunglasses on my head and take out the users manual in my pocket and sleeve my arms. Handling the big shining and calculate the time with using the stars location on the systems and say, its 12.00

For THAT price, it better go down on you!
Alpha Stormer (16 days ago)
It tells you when and possibly where you can teleport. That's why it cost so much. Its not meant for a regular person in the first place.

LeBron James makes about $80 million a year, including endorsements. Divided by 12 = $6.666 million a month. So.... $450,000 is about his two days of pay! that is like us buying a decent Seiko Automatic! I do not even want to do the calculation for Jeff Bezos who is worth 151 billion as of today..... I guess everything is relative. Except guys like you and me who are watching this type of video, we will be ordering $50 casio from Amazon, ha ha ha

lee mhel (24 days ago)

Pranav Pawar (24 days ago)

grey head (24 days ago)
So people can pretend they are rich, when they blew all their money on a f*cking watch.
tr1p1ea (25 days ago)
Unless it takes 20+ years to make one of these there is no justification for its pricetag.

That enamel Earth is the weakest design element on this watch. It just doesn’t suit the overall style of the watch.

It is a way for the extremely rich to set them apart from us, nothing more.
Sharon (29 days ago)
It makes me think of a more compact version of the antikythera mechanism which in itself was a fantastic device whose existence still baffles people to this day. If I could afford it, I would actually buy one of those watches.

Just a protip: It's 2018; we have political issues domestic and abroad: wearing something like this makes you a fuckhead. The time is displayed on your busted ass mobile.
