Here is an article about a wristwatch inspired by the wankel engine. I am not a fan of this particular watch but I must admit, this is some high end work.


Anyone here a watch lover? Any body a WIS at redline? Much cheaper addiction than cars and better for yr wallet in the wrong run lol. :lol:

yeah kidding yourself if you think watches are cheaper than cars LOL

Unless you are modifying Prancing horses or Bulls.

I for one can not see the benefit in such a watch there are other watches i would buy for that price which would be a much wiser investment.

There's no watch I would buy for that price! The deposit for that watch is almost the same as the deposit I paid for my house. And you can't even live in a watch.

Yeah , that was a bit of an over statement about watches being "cheaper" than car.

95% of watches are BAD investment. Having said that I have turn nice profit on a few, break-even and lost on some. And as a hobby, atleast to me has been quite a fun journey.

According to the news article, the hotel staff was using his staff access card to enter the room. The card was traced and he was caught lol. Not smart.
