    This reminds me of something a finance professor once said, “There is a constant migration of dollars from ninnies to non-ninnies.”

    There are, no doubt, even a few ninnies among the present day robber-baron oligarchs in the US willing to spend from their overflowing coffers for such a frivolity.

    And I’m sure the new reduction in the Estate Tax will bring this watchmaker a few more customers next year.

    The poor and the rich both waste a lot of their money; they just do it in strikingly different ways.
    The rich spill more on a good night than poor people waste in a month.
    To paraphrase Richard Pryor, This is God’s way of saying, “You have too much money.”

  4. I don’t know what is dumber. That someone would charge that much or that someone would pay it

    For that price at least they could paint some numbers on the thing. Surely someone has some number stickers in the back room?

    Does it come with a slave to read the time out for you? That’s where the real cost goes

    A gift fit for the Saudi Prince in your life.

    I bet they could make this in China for under $1,000!

    Well, you could think of it as a valuable piece of art and craftsmanship.
    $1.2 million is nothing compared to the value of say…derivatives which are invented absurd entries being swapped between computers.
    9 Trillion dollars were distributed to save the latter, meanwhile work of true value is being destroyed a little more each passing day.

    Can’t imagine paying that kind of money for a watch with no Indiglo(TM) backlight. $600k, tops.
