  1. Why would someone pay that much for a timepiece, I understand the work going into it but that's more than the average persons life income!

  2. Very nice watch but a tad expensive i might add.

    I'm quite well off but the most I'd ever pay for a time piece even if money was no issue whatsoever would be about $400,000

    Interesting however

  22. I'm not really sold on classic watches. I guess they just don't really fit my style. Personally I have 12-5-9 B-Gunmetal watch which I just love. But if I ever decide on a classic design then there's only one model - Tag Heuer's Monaco model that steve McQueen wore in Bullit :)
