Ludicrously expensive watch manufacturer Greubel Forsey is now offering a transparent sapphire watch in a carved crystal case for a cool $1.275 million bones. The Double Tourbillon 30° Technique lets you see the movement of its inner workings from every angle, an ability the company is calling the “pinnacle of transparency”.
No metal was used at all in the creation of the dial and case except for the winding pin. The limited edition timepiece will be exclusive to the U.S. market with only eight watches available for sale. Each watch will be individually created by hand over the course of the next three years and has 396 moving parts.

in Late May, Greubel Forsey sold a watch at an auction for $1.4 million, so, sadly, there’s someone out there rich enough to spend seven digits on something that is free if you just look at your smartphone. I get it. It’s not for telling time. It’s for decoration. Someone might notice the watch and be like, Oh, that’s a nice watch. And then you have to be the asshole who’s like Guess how much.
This is what the guys on that 30 for 30 doc Broke would buy just because. I’d love to see one billionaire buy all eight limited edition watches and wear four on each arm and then try to make it from one end of the ghetto to the other. THAT is a game show I can get behind.
