Watchmaker Creates Abnormal Apple Watch Hybrid

iOS / Mobile / Tech / Wearables

Have you ever been wearing a watch to have the unfortunate luck of looking down at the time and then realized you looked at the wrong side of your wrist?  Do you want an Apple Watch but don’t want to stop wearing your trusty analog luxury watch?  Do you have a spare $112,000 laying around to spend on a watch instead of buying something practical like a Tesla?  If you answered yes to all of these questions then Nico Gerard has a watch to sell you.

Nico Gerard created the Pinnacle collection that has an analog watch on one side and an Apple Watch mutated into the backside of the band finally solving a problem that nobody has.  The high end 18 karat gold version, Sunrise Pinnacle, which is limited and only 88 will be made – probably for the best, is going to run you the most at $112,000.  If that’s going to break the bank for you then you can grab one of the other two models in silver with a black or blue face coming in at only $9,300 or $9,500.

The only downside to the Pinnacle watch collection is that it will take anywhere from 6 to 12 months for the watch to arrive.  The Apple Watch was released in April of 2015 and this would put your delivery date somewhere between February and August of 2016.  Not being a part of the inner workings of Apple I can still make an educated guess that a new model of the Apple Watch would be out sometime within that time frame rendering your brand new mutant luxury watch out of date as soon as you take it out of the box.

As far as the design goes there are only two things missing from the watch that I would hope to see added in the next version.  There needs to be a compass and calculator added to the side of the bands so I’ll have everything I need all on my wrist with easy access.

What are your thoughts on this type of watch design?  Would you wear anything like it?  Let us know in the comments, on Facebook, Google+, or Twitter.
