Limited edition watches with miniature piano and gyroscope inside. Opera and similar Godfather are at Jacob & Co.

Price?

Somehow, I think it is around the price of a Steinway B or D. Oh, well, at least the watch would fit into my apartment.

I'm holding out for the grand piano kit from Lego. That model will also fit into my apartment.

$360k in gold. Founder said there are 88 watches in gold and 88 in titanium.

The customer is a Hollywood producer and watch collector, hence the personalised Godfather Watch demonstration. There is some staggering artwork in the video so it is worth a watch.

$360k! It's a good thing I wasn't drinking coffee or I would have spit it all over my screen. I suppose there is a market for everything. That guy has my Fazioli on his wrist.

For a lot of people, he is wearing their single family house, lol.

You'll love the $4.2 million yellow diamond watch later in the video.

I lived and worked for years near Jacob & Co. and was completely oblivious to its existence. Different target audience. I still appreciate the thoughtful design.

That's heart attack territory. The video is too long, TL;DR, or TL;DW, so I didn't see the other watch.

The rich are like you and me, they just have a lot more money. I worked for a half-billionaire. You would not be able to pick him out on the street, and he wouldn't have walked down the street wearing that watch.

Back in the bad old days of New York, a manager of mine from IBM was beaten unconscious and robbed of his Rolex, in the middle of the day. Anybody who wants my Apple Watch can have it, I want to upgrade to Series 5 anyway. I consider the Apple Watch to be a magical device, these custom watches less so, but I do see the mechanical design work that goes into them.

At one point, I thought about going into watch repair. I'm glad I didn't. I would rather try to repair software than try to repair hardware, especially hardware with such tiny parts.

I know someone who's seriously rich, and I think he'd be very embarrassed if he thought anyone could pick him out as rich. I suppose its the whole store-bought status nonsense that makes some people wince.

I recommend “Danny Collins,” a film starring Al Pacino. That film is based on a true story about a letter that John Lennon sent to an up and coming musician. In his letter, Lennon talks about money and fame. He basically says, ok, now that you have money. you don’t have to worry about paying for food and shelter, but you are left with the same problems that all humans face, namely, finding someone to love, taking care of your family, and maintaining relationships. Being rich doesn’t change any of that.

As Janis Joplin asked when she hit the big time: "So is this it?"

Or, as Peggy Lee sang, Is That All There Is?
