    Gotta say, it's pretty impressive, and with just 135 copies allover the world, it's gotta worth a lot as well. The website of Jacob and Co is here, "Limited Edition Series: 99 pieces in White Gold, 18 pieces in Rose Gold, 18 pieces in Platinum"

    :D

    agreed, and the dials seem to turn the wrong way compared to what I'd see as being the most intuitive way for them to move.

    Agreed, no doubt lots of rappers/rnb stars will buy it because according to them, it makes them look blingin and whatnot:p. My honest opinion..gimme a breitling over Jacobs any day:p.

    I like it but I'd never ever be seen dead wearing it. It'd be better slightly larger as a clock for the wall :D

    You guys are mean :p I like it because it's different, I wouldn't buy it because a) I can't and b) it's not my style. I still think it's hot ;)

    This is very true, mechanically it's fascinating but not as a watch.

    I love anything that's a bit different - I'd wear it with a suit or something, but it wouldn't look right with anything else.

    On cheaper watches you just have to wind it on at the end of months where there aren't 31 days. On a watch this price the mechnaism might have been designed with this in mind - then again, it might not, I don't really know much about watches.

    That's exactly what I was reffering to, I love all sort of mechanical stuff, since I was months old, if I see a complicated machine I'd spend ages to figure out what part does what and how everything comes together.

    yes, its extremely innovative watch and impressive piece of engineering but as a dress piece?
    crap.
