It seems the hot Olympic roars at Beijing has raided Swiss Watch Manufacturer Ernst Benz to create a series of cool looking Watch with the traditional (not ancient) Chinese character numbering from 1 to 12.
Those watch are Ernst Benz Limited edition called ChronoScope which made especially for Beijing 2008 Olympic. Only 88 pieces of them are available for the world with a high price to get.
Yep, 88 of them only. I guees it is to synchronizing with the Olympic Ceremony date at Beijing, which is on August 8th, 2008 exactly at 8 pm. Well, it should be 888 instead. Lucky 777 and Fortune 888! 😉
Ernst Benz Choro are 2 variation of colors, Chinese Red and Noir black, and you only can get this watch if you have $5,800 in your pocket! Wuih…, what a price! Well, at least it’s not a weird watch and you can easily read through this watch design (although it’s Chinese) from Ernst Benz.
“The watch comes in Chinese-themed packaging and wiill be available with the choice of either hand-stitched alligator straps: black with red stitching or red with black stitching.”
