The survivalist's $500,000 watch

But after the apocalypse, will time matter?

Zenith

If you thought only cockroaches would survive a nuclear holocaust, here's something else to add to the rarefied list--Zenith's Defy Xtreme Zero-G Watch. Its makers have apparently imbued this timepiece with the powers of Superman since it not only defies gravity (being accurate even in extreme gravity), but it's also waterproof down to 1,000 feet. You can read about the technology behind this feat at the Web site. Did we mention it costs $500,000? Yes, that's five zeros.

As for bodywork, it's armored in a blackened titanium body, with a titanium strap sporting Kevlar inserts, and 294 ultra-complicated parts, according to Uncrate. Unfortunately, even if this watch does manage to defy the worst disasters it's designed to survive, keeping time probably won't be a top priority.
