I was wandering along the high street in Royal Tunbridge Wells, drinking a lovely coffee from Fine Grind (which coincidentally is the same coffee company who didn't sponsor this article), and I noticed this rather shiny watch. Now if you know me well, you'll know that I like things that are shiny, so I thought that it was a lovely thing. But when I noticed the price of over £26k, I realised that my price to shininess threshold did have its limits.
One shiny thing for £26k is quite a lot, and I'm pretty sure that I could find at least 1000 shiny things for this same amount. Or maybe 26 really good shiny things. Maybe 26 Apple Watches, and unlike this watch, Apple Watches have more than just the one app called "clock". Also imagine the happiness on the face of the Apple Store employee if you bought 26 Apple Watches! They're happy enough if you go in and just say you're browsing. It would be like all 26 of their Christmases had come all at once.
Anyway, I digress. Back to the £26K watch. Seeing a watch for £26K, it make me wonder what features a watch would have to have for me to shell out £26K for it. And I'd say that the only way I'd spend that much on a watch would be if it had the ability to control time, i.e. go forward and backward in time. And then I'd buy the watch, and use it to go back in time to before I wasted £26K on a watch.
