Accordion wristwatch

The Opera by Manufacture Royale, opens up like an accordion and the unveiled chamber amplifies the sound of the movement that would otherwise be muffled by the case of the watch. Designed by Fabrique du Temps, the watch is priced at $1.2 million and is made out of 319 parts. While the case is interesting, there is a lost opportunity here because the watch is let down by the movement and hand design. related links Manufacture Royale (via Gizmodo & A Blog to Read)
