The Marc Newson Hourglass

https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/marc-newson-hourglass-limited-edition-for-hodinkee

Песочные часы за $12,000. Говорят, что это недорого, потому что предыдущие часы та же контора продавала за $13-14К.

Первая мысль, "на каких дураков это рассчитано?"

Потом почитал описание часов по ссылке выше и захотелось купить.

... inside are approximately 1,249,996 little spheres called "nanoballs." Each nanoball is just 0.6mm in diameter, and they're made from solid stainless steel with a fine copper coating (and an anti-corrosion layer, so you won't have to worry about them turning green in a few years' time). Look under a loupe and you'll notice they're entirely seamless, so they won't catch on one another or scratch the glass. They move together almost like a liquid.
