This $150,000 Mechanical Watch Is Really A Weather Station

view story

http://techcrunch.com – Sensor-laden watches that electronically measure the temperature, barometric pressure, and magnetic north are fairly cheap. A nice Casio can be had for about $200. But if you’re one of those high-tech, post-IPO types that wants to feel like Phileas Fogg for a minute or two each day, you can shell out $150,000 for the Breva Génie 01, a mechanical watch that measures altitude, temperature, and predicts the weather using tiny moving parts. Why, you ask? Because they can. And because you can afford it. The Génie 01 looks like any other high-end watch that costs more than our cars combined. (IT news)
