When does a watch cost as much as a house? When it's the gravity defying $US250,000 Louis Vuitton Tambour Mysterieuse Calibre LV115 apparently.
The focus of the design lies in its transparent face with a mechanism that appears to float in the centre. However, the secret to this magical feature is actually quite simple—the hour and minute hands are supported by two transparent sapphire disks. The watch is also capable of running for up to eight days on a single winding.
Yeah, $US250,000 is a lot to spend on a watch, but there are some perks to the purchase—each watch can be customised in whatever way the customer sees fit and it comes with a mini steamer trunk to keep it safe. Meh, I would still rather have the house. [Luxury Insider via Tuvie via DVICE]
