New Years Resolution: Spend Money on Something Other Than Cars...

... like the Bugatti Type 370 wristwatch by the upscale Swiss horologist Parmigiani Fleurier.  The watch is a stunning amalgam of technology, style and slightly insane engineering, just like real Bugatti's.

From what we could determine, prices for these timepieces range from $187,000-$244,000 and that doesn't include the diamond versions.  Here's some specs as supplied by the manufacturer, this one for the engine-turned dial version:
  • Exceptional designintegrating the transverse movement.
  • Unique transverse movement with 5 plates entirely manufacturedby Parmigiani Fleurier.
  • 6 sapphire crystals enabling every part of its mechanical universe to be observed.
  • Power reserve of 10 days indicated on the side of a rotating drum.
  • Ease of winding using the dynamometric starter.
  • Edition limited to 3 x 50 pieces and 1 x 10 pieces.
What that means to the rest of us is that the entire mechanical movement is visible behind the watch's six (6!!!) sapphire crystals, it will run for up to 10-days on a full wind, and it even comes with it's own special "starter" tool.  The watch is supplied by the famous leather good company Hermes.
