Got money to burn? And you like watches? Watch this thing burn away time (hè, see what I did there?)

I always thought I got some expensive hobbies, but I pity those who collect watches… Especially very limited and extremely cool watches. Like the Harry Winston Opus Eleven.
Next to having a name that’s quite a mouthful, this particularly watch is like the Antarctica of coolness; it destroys time! And than rebuilds it. And destroys it again… See where I’m going?

After watching this video, I still don’t really get it. It’s weird. Just see for yourself:

And that’s just the main frame. It’s got a second wheel displaying the minutes. Personally, I think that this watch is more art than practical. Like the creators said:

Opus Eleven makes news with a technology and architecture that have never been seen before. Ingenious mechanisms give the watch a rare character –  an explosive temperament that makes a sport of time. In addition to its role as an instrument, Opus Eleven creates an engineering puzzle that resolves itself on the hour.

There are a few reasons why I asked if you got money to burn. This is one of those watches that don’t come cheap, on the contrary…. This little baby costs $250,000!
The main reason for its heavy price tag is the exclusivity. Only 111 are ever going to be made! Ever! That ain’t much. Well, it is much if you think about it. How many people do you know (personally) that can buy a watch like this and wear it casually? Or would even wear it whenever? I don’t know such a person.
The second reason is that the case is made of white gold and and the dome is from sapphire-crystal. I like white gold, prefer it a lot instead of yellow gold. Yellow gold is for old people like my granny.

So. Who’s going to order one? 😀

$250.000, quite a steal no?
