This is the most expensive watch I've ever seen at $495,000 retail. I was totally enthralled with the exposed movement and the unique shape of the see through case. I wanted this image to express the soaring, almost ludicrous extravagance of the design and price tag. Obviously, wearing this watch has little or nothing to do with telling the time... it's about flying high in the clouds of extravagance.
