I’m not sure why it is that these cool watches over the last few days are jumping out at me. I don’t even like watches and even if I was loaded enough to drop dig bucks on a watch, I wouldn’t. To me a $100 Swatch is just as good as a $5,000 Rolex.
A French watch design firm called 4N has debuted what may be the coolest watch in the history of watches. The thing is known as the MVT01/D01, has a face made form 18K gold, and is available in platinum too. Inside that case is a marvel of watch making with gears and disks that move around to show the time. The watch is powered by an old school winding mechanism.
The watch has three discs made from titanium or aluminum that spin to show the hour and minutes on a 12-hour clock in numbers that look digital. The number disks are inside a cage made from carbon. 4N says that bands made from different materials will be offered and only 16 of the watches will be made. 4N doesn’t list a price, but I am sure they will be crazy expensive .
