A watch with a built-in slot machine

It even has a handle to pull

Bourne in Time

As the poker craze has turned suburban enclaves into dens of gambling iniquity, other traditional games of chance have suffered--namely, the slot machine. But Girard-Perragaux isn't so easily swayed by the latest trends (particularly American ones), and the Swiss watchmaker has proven that point with its "Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon," which pays homage to the one-armed bandit.

In addition to the usual crown, the right side of the case has a small handle that can be pulled to set the reels in motion, Luxist says. (Three bells in a row denotes a jackpot, FYI.) The unique 18k timepiece even has a hammer that strikes a small gong while they're spinning, creating a mini-casino atmosphere. The price, which isn't mentioned, may ironically require a real jackpot's loot to pay for it.
