There are far more watches costing $100,000 than you’d guess; and many that exceed that price. If you are going to spend that type of money on a watch, it might as well have a unique novelty, considering you aren’t going to wear it very often. Here we have an interesting toy for the uber-wealthy, from obscure watch maker Mermod Freres. What an ostentatious sounding name even.
You’ll agree that this music playing watch focuses on being an expensive toy, but does so in tasteful manner. Despite the high price, the design is pleasantly subdued and focuses on the richer elements of the watch, being the skeletonized dial, rich materials (it comes in 18k white or yellow gold), ornately carved crown with bird logo, and the bountiful 45.5mm size. Don’t expect to see many of these watch around, but if you are lucky enough to spot one, take a nice hard look, and listen to its songs.
