    Something completely different - again

    A few days ago, Radger posted:

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/now...nt-463929.html

    which showed a rather nice compass in a PW case. Last night on ebay, I stumbled upon this:

    MONACO ROULETTE IN A POCKET WATCH STYLE on eBay (end time 30-Oct-10 22:35:26 BST)

    which is a bit like

    and a little research found:

    Rouette and other Gambling Watches, Antique Gambling Chips

    so I thought I'd share.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    These are interesting, but I have to admit I absolutely hate the idea of them.

    No idea why.
