    that's super-geek!

    definitely check the video out.

    the back of the watch looks like it's not flat - that won't be terribly comfy, will it?

    That's awesome. It's amazing how it takes so long to make something that small work.

    Great idea, but if its in the Monaco-sized case, the think will look like a Door Knob on your wrist....

    Look, I think you watch people are silly, but even I want that thing...

    I wonder if it makes more noise than usual?

    It is a cool watch but why it isn't in off-topic is what has me thinking

    Nope, that's why they went with the belts. The old chain-driven ones make a hell of a racket, though.

    Cheers

    When a belt breaks all the internals crash together destroying the watch; the cost to repair exceeds the cost of a new watch.

    Estimated cost for a production model - 10,000 Euros or $12,340 at today's exchange rate.

    A bit pricey in my book (but cool). For less money, I'd rather get a Breitling Emergency with the built-in 121.5 transmitter.

    This is a beautiful watch. looking at the video got me all excited.

    You can buy an good quality automatic movement watch for $100 - $150. It may not have the biggest name to go with it, but for the price you can't beat it.

    Give it a few years and this technology will be borrowed by other watch makers and it will sell for less.

    It probably sounds like a top fuel or funny car blower belt!
