Designer Marc Newson makes a $12,000 hourglass

The fact that he doesn’t know what esoteric means added to the pain.

The fact that you can hear the individual grains because they’re coppered stainless steel bearing is freakin cool. (and you can probably feel them, and definitely watch them as they re-pack themselves as they shift around)

The fact that you can buy one for $12,000 is almost as bad as the fact that the bb player just looped that video on a tab in the background just now. GRAH

Has to be fake. Didn’t you hear Newson bemoaning the fact that hardly anyone can do this anymore?

It’s beautiful and elegantly simple. But if you want to charge $12k for it, you should find some way to add a three-axis tourbillon. You don’t want it affected by gravity.
