Would you spend 120,000 on this Experiment ZR012 watch?
It says right there. US$120,000
Expensive? Yes. But how many watches do you know which are inspired by the Wankel engine?
A… a what?
A Wankel engine. Basically, the Experiment ZR012 is the first timepiece to have a mechanism which rotates in an eccentric pattern, like so:
A result of the C3H5N209 experiment (that’s Nitroglycerin in English), this extravagant titanium and zirconium wrist-hugger displays the time with a pair of rotating Reuleaux triangles, with a power bar to show how much of the 39-hours-per-wind is left.
I’m not sure why, but I want one.
That’s the inner geek in you fighting to get out. Well, if you’re serious then head on over here, where you’ll need to put down a 33,000 Swiss Franc deposit to nab one of only 12 watches made.
