Meh. This is why I'd make a terrible super-wealthy guy. I'm just not into stuff like this as it is not very practical. I have a super computer in my pocket that keeps atomic time, has multiple planetariums on it, alerts me to bright satellite passes, tracks the planets across the sky and cost me less than any of these watches. Oh, and I can make phone calls and get my email, text messages etc on it as well.

Watches are neat, and the engineering and mechanics interest me, but I'd not buy one.
