This $12000 Labyrinth Maze Wristwatch Is Delightfully Useless

Swiss watchmaker Hautlence decided that a wristwatch doesn’t have to be a watch at all – it can be a $12,000 analog game.

Their new Playground Labyrinth allows wearers to navigate a tiny 18k gold ball around a maze by moving your wrist and making you look like your arm is having an uncontrollable spasm. The goal is to get the ball to fall into a hole on the face, at which point it will disappear into the game’s inner mechanism. By turning the crown dial on the side, it will magically re-emerge in a second hole at the beginning of the maze.

Although the device doesn’t include any provision for telling the time, it’s probably unnecessary, since those who can afford the massive price tag probably have schedules that consist of kicking back and rolling in money.

Check out the video below.
