Why? Just Why?
Slowburn, Why not?

RIGHT ON, SLOWBURN! Looks as if the Accounting Department found a lost inventory of widgets on a back shelf and gave a designer the task of finding a way of using them up. A huge amount of complexity for no actual timekeeping benefit. To have a unique timepiece should not equal difficulty of reading the thing once you are wearing it - Or is the object just to buy them and keep them in a safe somewhere?
@ xdigitor It makes the watch harder to read, less reliable, and more expensive without adding any improvement in accuracy.

As Slowburn so eloquently puts it: "Why? Just Why?" My watch cost 40 złoty - about £8.00. It keeps excellent time and if I lose it, or it eventually gives up the ghost, I will put its replacement on instead (which I have already bought). On top of all that, the dial is infinitely more easily read than the one on this watch. I cannot imagine wearing a US$25,000 item on my wrist. There are a number of people out there who would not value my wrist as being anywhere near as valuable and remove it, together with the watch, rather than fiddle with the strap.

No matter it's cost, it's still insanity. All those impacts of all those little arms returning to position over the years. No, I don't like the design. I'm still a cave-being, loving Citizen's Eco-Drive design.
I disagree with fellow posters. I see a work of art. If they were $24,950.00 less expensive I would most definitely purchase---too bad, over my budget.

It is a nice looking watch, but being the type of person that doesn't have $25,000 to spend on anything, let alone a watch, I can think of a lot of things I'd rather pay money for.
I wish somebody would reintroduce a cheap, self winding, waterproof, balance wheel watch. Say 1950s technology.
@ Slowburn For the same reason a dog licks his balls. . . because he can.
