1/10th the price. I think I'll have this one, thank you very much.

$200,000 for a pornographic watch? Because this is "poke-her" isn't it? Like those glasses, you filled them up with liquid, and the lady lost her clothes. I don't even want to know what this one does. I suppose with all the new technologies, it could be very realistic, but still......morons with too much money.

Snarky comments aside, this is pretty cool... A mechanical poker game fit into a watch casing blows away a smartphone playing some crappy mass market app any day.

This isn't practical in anyway, but it's awesome for its engineering.

While it is pretty well made, the hands dealt don't seem to be truly random, considering that from what I can tell from the video there are just two wheels that spin around and stop at a given time.  If you memorized the order of the wheels, depending on what hand you were dealt you could figure out the flop, turn, river and other hands - it doesn't look like the cards ever change their positions in the wheel relative to each other.

Why can't this be done digitally for $50?

Ok, maybe a third wheel for the third card on the flop, but that's still kinda lame.

From the Farking Article:

And just in case poker isn't your game, there's a working roulette wheel built into the back.

So, they've got that covered too.

That's what I get for not reading the article.

That's really dumb.

It's a good thing there are no problems in the world that could be improved with $200,000, or you'ld look like a real asshole buying one of those..

But who do you give your money to when you lose? Or do you just throw it on the ground because, Yay! You have a $200,000 watch!

Yup, rich people have to give all their money to charity. They are not allowed to spend it on any luxury items. Gave $1MM to charity this year? Fark you! You could have given $1.2MM and not gotten this watch!

Or we could just raise their taxes.

Because if someone has enough money to buy this, clearly his taxes are WAY too low.
