$300,000 Watch Doesn’t Tell Time, But Transcends Time and Space

daynight watch

Though the fundamentally awesome concept of time and space appears intriguing to both stoners and astrophysicists, only one of two groups can afford this particular watch. Designed by Swiss watchmaker Romain Jerome, the Day&Night watch offers (wait for it) only two modes of time: day and night.

The Wall Street Journal explains how it works in exceptional detail:

The watch features two tourbillons — devices that overcome the ill effects of earth’s gravity on a watch’s accuracy — connected by a differential mechanism. Instead of hands, the watch has a “contemplative tourbillon operation whereby the ‘Day’ tourbillon operates for 12 hours to symbolize working life, while the ‘Night’ tourbillon takes over afterward to represent an individual’s private time.

Call me crazy, but ridiculous price aside, I love the concept that this watch is going for. The idea of transitioning time twice throughout a 24-hour period is appealing and would make for a wonderful way to segue into the evenings. If you’re looking to get one, I apologize. They sold out in a mere 48-hours.
