Think Apple Watch Is Expensive? This Watch Costs up to $500,000

· · Cool Stuff Found

So you’re looking at Apple Watch pricing and thinking to yourself, wow, those are pricey! Here’s a watch that might give you a new perspective on what expensive really is. BusinessInsider has a video look at the Bovet Récital 22 Grand Récital, available in Red Gold ($450,000) or Platinum ($500,000). It’s the complications, not the materials, that make it expensive, as this watch has 700 working parts, some of the rarest complications, and takes forever to make. I love mechanical timepieces, and while this one is extreme just to be extreme, it’s beautiful and amazing. It’s also limited to 60 pieces, so get your order in when you can. [Via Digg]

Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet can’t get enough of Apple Watch Series 4, even though Jeff is wrong about the Infograph Watch Face. They also find it interesting that a designer got recognized by the world of science, and they weigh whether or not Apple’s plan to avoid sex, violence, and politics with its original TV shows will hurt its streaming service.

Check out Apple’s new spot called Better You for Apple Watch Series 4. It’s a fun spot pushing the idea that we can always improve ourselves, and that Apple Watch Series 4 will help you do that. Couch potato? Get up. Hanging around? Get out and go for a walk. Listen to music while you’re out, too. Take a phone call. In fact, make that walk a jog. No, wait. If you’re going to jog, step it up and make it a run. Or hey, better yet, sprint and then finish that sprint off with a swim in the ocean. I love this spot. It’s compelling, and it tells an easy-to-understand story. The product shots of Apple Watch Series 4 are good, too.
