Illustration for article titled This Watch Explodes and Reconfigures Itself Every Hour Just to Tell You the Time

The Harry Winston Opus Eleven doesn't need watch hands. It's got main cylinders which disintegrate and re-assemble every hour to tell you the time.


The three cylinders are meant to "deconstruct" time—with the biggest circle housing 24 placards that rotate and move every hour on a complex series of gears. The small top circle displays the minutes while the small bottom circle displays the beat of a titanium balance-wheel.

If Inception were a watch, I'm sure it would choose to be this one. It won't be easy to get a hold of one though, as there are only 111 of them being made at $250,000 each. [Harry Winston via Uncrate]
