Every time you think that the world can’t get any more outrageous, someone has to come along and prove you wrong. It’s been said that the wristwatch is going out of style thanks to the advent of the cell phone. Men are supposedly not wearing their time pieces anymore as they feel there is no need because nowadays everything is being done via smart phones, this apparently includes telling the time. Personally I think this is all BS, as I haven’t visually seen a decline in the wristwatch wearing population. And unless your name is Liberace than you, as a man have no real business wearing jewelry, watches however are the exception to the rule.
Most guys I know choose their watches like they choose their cars, which is to say, very carefully. You see a watch, like an automobile tells quite a bit about the owner wearing it so the decision as to what time piece you wear is not one that is to be taken lightly. Because of this ORIGINTIMES has seen fit to create the ultimate in watch winding storage and technology by providing us with the BIG BLOCK WINDER. For connoisseurs who want the best of the best, well here it is.
What you are seeing is the engine block out of a BUGATTI EB 16.4 Veyron. This beautiful block holds up to 16 time pieces and costs an astounding $115,280 US (watches not included). There is a small touch panel that controls the internal winding system for each individual cylinder as per the requirements of the respective watch and a nifty stand as well (but that’s extra). In the same way that I appreciate a fine automobile, I can also appreciate a fine time piece. So, while I want to say this is ridiculous, I simply cannot because if I had the means I might actually purchase one. I know it’s sad, but it is unfortunately true – of course mine would have to be that of a 440 Chrysler block.
