This is Stretching It or Proof that “Good” Design Sells

Apparently there’s a WATCH that sells for $300,000. Dude, Good Design sells, right?

Here’s the thing. It doesn’t tell time.

Damn straight. It’s a day-night watch. It can tell you whether it’s day or night. I guess if you’re stuck in, say, Ministry of Love or something that might be useful. Those Oceanians probably work ridiculous hours and that may be useful…

Anyway, the point is is that this watch, no matter how pretty it is and how many pieces of the Titanic it contains (true!), it still can’t tell you the time and it costs more than some people’s homes. Get a load of that.

This guy is rolling in the money. It sold out minutes after its launch.
