    man, I kinda want that

  2. Rabido says:

    Is it me or does $35k seem to be too cheap for something of historical value like this?

    Would you buy a $200k Patek Philippe watch or one of these?

    @2 I agree. I would’ve expected it to fetch more. Shit, this is the timepiece used by the man who completely re-redefined time itself.

    @2 No I would not

  5. Joel Johnson says:

    I hope whoever buys it wears it from time to time and casually works relativity into a conversation, then slips it off and blows someone’s mind. It could be the ultimate accessory for picking up geeky girls.
