The Dent Denison: $40,000 worth of watch

From the same clockmaker that brought you Big Ben's Great Clock, comes the $40,000 Dent Denison wristwatch. Think of it as a much more subtle way to attract a mate than a red Ferrari convertible.

The Dent Denison watch.
Fetch me my wristwatch, Jeeves. Dent

Any man can wear an iPod Nano on his wrist or sport a Phosphor mechanical crystal watch . It takes a special (and rich) geek to flash the new Dent Denison gentleman's wristwatch. From the same clockmaker that brought you Big Ben's Great Clock, comes this $40,000 timepiece. That's not a typo. The Denison is all handmade, comes in an 18-carat-gold case, and takes six months to manufacture. So you'll need to be patient, as well as wealthy.

There are all sorts of sexy specs that come along with this watch. Rake your eyes across the ivory dial. Luxuriate in the sense sensation of the hand-stitched alligator strap with gold buckle. Turn your mind to the internal self-winding movement. Pop open the back and admire the elaborate engraving. Tell time with the hand-applied Breguet Arabic numerals. (It's OK. I had to google "Breguet," too.)

That's all fine and dandy, but what you really want to know is if you can do water sports while wearing it. Have no fear. Take your $40,000 investment with you into the warm ocean off the coast of your own private island. It's water-resistant to 100 meters.

You had better hurry up and place your order. The Denison is limited to 100 pieces each in rose and white gold. Think of it as a much more subtle way to attract a mate than a red Ferrari convertible . It shows that you have impeccable taste, a stiff upper lip, and an even stiffer credit card limit.
