    Minute repeater, monopusher chronograph and instantaneous perpetual calendar with a self-wind movement ... unpossible, you say?

    The Patek Philippe ref. 5208P

    It also has the new Pulsomax escapement and Spiromax balance made of the silicon compound Silinvar.

    I had a feeling that would show up pretty quick :) and it makes the cake at the 1 million dollar mark as well.

    well played sir.

    IMO if someone actually bought a watch costing that much, it would be a classic case of more money than brains.

    You are right from a logical standpoint but there is something to be said about the ingenuity and precision that goes in to building something that complex. I think it is worth appreciating the workmanship and at least pretending we would buy it given that we were kazilionairs :)

    Yet, they always managed to get sold.

    I've always wondered what the production cost of a $1-5 million watch?

    Hard for me to believe it's more than 30 to 40 thousand. Unless there are rare jewels like black diamonds etc.. on but in most cases there aren't.

    I would definitely buy the Patek Philippe if I was a Kazillionaire.

    Well, they have to retain the brilliant people behind that watch/movement's design and manufacture, I expect they get paid quite handsomely. There are other costs and overheads too (other than direct materials, machining, tooling, hardware, software, facility, power and water costs, etc.), but I expect at that level, they'd easily be making 300-400% profit.
