So this man is telling me this watch can tell positions of the stars but cant tell the actual time? Neat

Avenrador is 35K cheaper than the cheaper model of this watch. No offence to the people whom Bane wanted to throw on streets, but thats not getting tallied on my platinum plated notebook written with unicorn blood filled inside the pen from Trex bones.

Before I watched this video, I thought this watch I thought this watch was gonna be overpriced, to-boost rich people own ego. But, after this video I realized... well I was right.

this is like the new internet in the 90s, everyone was using flash and gif animation. Bell and whistle are just that in the end a simplicity is still more mature and long lasting art.

See? This. THIS is true art craftsmanship! If I had the luxury, I'd probably buy this thing! I just love the effort and passion yo it's craftmanship and function! All those other million dollar watches? Yah yah, fine, keep your shiny rocks. THIS is what I appreciate!
Henry Reinhart (4 days ago)
Only one reason: it is not worth it by any means, nothing that goes into adds up to 1/2 that much; rather they charge that because they can and know with human psychology being what it is they can get away with it and folks will toss that $$$ amount at it. Nothing more.

If you are so concerned about the position of sun and moon then just go buy an smart watch which could possibly tell you the position of all the stars and planets known to the mankind.

That watch is sooo last season compared to my Dora The Explorer Go-Watch.
Gaming WithShinzo (8 days ago)
It better be able to travel to the future or something
Why do you need an expensive watch to tell time when you can just get a Dora the explorer watch or a $50 watch to tell time and the stupidest reason for expensive watches is to just flex with a small accessory
hasnat rbm (8 days ago)
Go to China.. They'll make exact same piece at 45/450 bucks
lefr33man (6 days ago)
@hasnat rbm One Chinese movement has been chronometer-certified last year for the first time. The rest is horseshit.
hasnat rbm (6 days ago)
@lefr33man Chinese own brand make chronometer certified watch for long periods of time.. If China don’t make smartphone, it would be the luxury thing.
lefr33man (6 days ago)
But they won't be chronometer-certified. The main price difference is there.

Time is now literally money
Brainman 2331 (8 days ago)
I didn't watch the video and probably won't. I'm here for the people that don't know anything about watches. This watch isn't expensive for the features or the materials or whatever. It is an artwork, made by highly qualified artists to match the smallest detail. And 450000 for an artwork that actually does more than just looking good, that's a pretty reasonable price. Nobody buys a watch to know the time, we have phones for that. This is solely an artwork.

@FunnyReactorgamer Frg I wouldn't recommend being rude to people especially with a grammar like that.
FunnyReactorgamer Frg (8 days ago)
you IQ is about 20
Dan X Gamer Official (8 days ago)
True but no one is willing to pay at least 20 dollars for a watch that doesn't even say time and speaking of REPLICA china replicas mostly have factory defects or just really noticeable mistakes. But even so if you like to have a watch that doesn't say time but how rich your are then go for it.

Still cheaper than a violin

tcb268 (11 days ago)
What a ludicrous item. I guess there's no limit to showing off.
SkullFuryGaming (11 days ago)
