Illustration for article titled Cabestan Sol Invictus Watch Has Two Solar Panels

Imagine having this on your wrist. The questions people would ask. The minutes you'd spend staring at it, trying to work out the time. Wondering why you spent $560,000 on it, instead of buying a house.

Heck, for that amount of money, you could've put solar panels all over that brand new house too—instead of buying two minuscule panels on a watch. Positioned at the bottom and top of the watch face, the panels soak up the rays and power the watch, which is supposedly based on designs from the 19th century scientist Léon Foucault.
