Watches: When You Have Time & Money

Sure, you could wear a watch to tell time but you really wear a watch to tell people how sophisticated, how discerning, how tasteful or how rich you are. The Bugatti Veyron helps but it’s hard to pull that into the bistro in Venice (the one in Italy).

“The Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon watch combines a Tourbillon and a slot machine equipped with a striking mechanism in a Vintage 1945 case. The top of the dial has three symbols that spin while the bottom part of the watch reveals the tourbillon cage. A handle on the right side of the case sets the three reels in motion which then stop randomly on one of the possible five symbols, while a hammer strikes a gong. Out of the 125 combinations, only one represents the jackpot: the three bells in a row.”

No price listed but I think if you have to ask …

Not nearly as nice but at $90, it’s a start … Tokyo Flash Jackpot: One Armed Bandit.
