Default A cool new toy

Although completely out of reach and impractical(to most) the craftsmanship and novelty cannot be denied!
I wouldn't mind having that on my workbench




and here is a short description from Timezone (where I found this):
"Richard Mille and master watchmaker Stephen Forsey have created a new interpretation of the 21st century Planetarium. It is constructed of titanium, wood, steel, brass, 18kt gold, sterling silver and red rubies."

and here is a pic of a Stephen Forsey watch:

Just thought I'd share.
Enjoy!

Wow, that sort of stuff just makes me shake my head in wonder. Clockmakers, when they produce a master-work like this, I think are on par with engravers who unveil an exhibition-grade Winchester or similar. Months, years of effort pay off with a museum piece that simply blows the mind.

Thanks for sharing!
