    A 'horological UFO'

    I really don't know what to say about this 24-hour watch - described as a 'horological UFO' on its own website - other than that is possibly the ugliest I have ever seen.

    It's almost a relief that they've only made twenty of them.

    I think I might give it a miss.

    But I’m interested in the purpose of the arc between 10 and 2 beneath the compass rose bezel. A gizmo for the application of magnetic variation when doing grid navigation perhaps?

    It simply amazes me what actually gets designed and produced these days. Just think of a group huddled at a table saying yes, this is a killer design and everybody will eat it up! I don't get it

    Sometimes a design has to be pushed to breaking point for the sake of art.

    How much is it? Can’t see a price.

    I expect the asking price is as outrageous as the watch.

    As the saying goes "If you have to ask the price you can't afford it."

    "Sylvester Stallone" is not automatically a guarantee of good taste.
    The watch is pure gimmick.

    As long as this . . . thing exists. No other watch need worry about being labeled “the ugliest ever.”
