I Know This Watch is a Marvel of Engineering, But I’d Smash It in Three Hours

Ulysse Nardin makes some of the most beautiful and intricate automatic movement wristwatches in the world.  As an afficianado of fine timepieces, I’d love one of their watches.  On this one, however, I’ll pass.

It’s an unbelieveably expensive limited edition (just 99 copies will be made and you have to be invited to spend...whatever on the thing before you can have one) that plays Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers in the Night” at the top of every hour using a teeny-tiny built-in music box.

Ulysse Nardin Stranger

That would be cool.  Twice.  Then I’d smash the thing.

Interesting fact:  development of the “Stranger“–the official name of the watch–was inspired by Ulysse Nardin’s partner and shareholder, Deiter Meier.  You might remember him as part of the duo who gave us such songs as this.
