The idea here was to showcase the sparkling luminescence of the "moon" watch and the water defiance of the chronograph. The watch was actually thrown into a glass water tank and it's a real water splash. The "Stars" are actually replicated from many of the very small air bubbles captured during the splash. Here are the watch specifics: Moon: Guy Ellia QP Perpetual Calendar Ultra Thin in 18K Exotic Black Gold. Sapphire Disc Display. Grand Masterpiece Unique Piece. Only One in the World. 31 Carats of Factory Original VVS Diamonds. MSRP: $298,500 Spalsh: Franc Vila FVa8ch Chronograph Big Date - Yellow Carbon Fiber Dial Limited Edition of 88. MSRP: $25,000
