For $170,000, you could buy a Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale Centennial Edition. Or you could buy a fancy clock for your Bentley Bentayga.
As you might expect, it’s not just any clock.

The body of the Mulliner Tourbillon by Breitling unit is solid gold, the number markers are emblazoned with diamonds, and the face—depending on the customer’s inclination—is crafted from either ebony or mother-of-pearl. Operation is mechanical, and while perpetual watches usually wind themselves using the wearer’s body motion, Bentley has developed a system that will accomplish something similar in the Bentayga. Which is too bad, because it’s kind of hilarious to think about high-society folks setting iPhone alarms to remind them to wind the clock in the old daily driver.
Of course, even at the Bentley’s lofty price point, which begins at $229,000 and climbs to $300,000 for the Edition One model, nearly $170,000 is a decent chunk of change for clock that doesn’t let you travel back or forward in time.
