A Few Minutes of Your Time: Porsche Design Indicator chronograph

Take a few minutes of your time to watch the video of the Porsche Design Indicator chronograph, reputedly the most sophisticated production wristwatch ever made. That remains to be seen, but it has a unique stopwatch function, a graphic power reserve (to tell you when it needs winding), and some kind of rewind feature. Oh, and it's made of titanium. List price is in the six-figures, but that's almost certainly a marketing ploy, and I expect you can drive one of these babies off the showroom floor for less than twenty large. If I could I would. The video gives you an idea of why it's worth that much. The exploded view assembly is truly incredible.

As a corollary to our OnceWereBachelors motto, if I have to explain it to you, you wouldn't understand.
