This alien-shaped watch costs the same as two Lamborghinis

This alien-shaped watch is known as the HM9 Sapphire Vision and it’s made by MB&F, an independent watchmaker from Switzerland.

As you can see, MB&F loves throwing convention to the wind, and we love it for that.

The first question you might be asking is, how exactly does one use this watch to tell time?

Bittersweet news on that front, because while the watch does have a ‘normal’ dial with traditional hands and hour markers, it is a lot smaller than usual.

It’s also not where you’d expect it to be.

The dial is located on the side of the watch, rather than on its face.

This type of watch is something called a driving watch.

They call it that because the idea is you’re supposed to be able to tell time by looking at it sideways while your hands are on the steering wheel.

With the exception of the solid gold frame and the gold crown at the top, the entire watch is made from transparent sapphire crystal, giving you the chance to admire the ultra-complicated movement.

It’s available in yellow gold with a green movement, but if that’s not your cup of tea, you can opt for the blue PVD one with a white gold frame.

The watch isn’t for everyone, for a couple of reasons.

The first is the shape.

It’s unique and unorthodox, almost like the head of an alien.

The second reason is this alien-shaped watch costs more than most supercars.

You might want to sit down for this, because it costs $490,000.

For that money, you can buy a Lamborghini Urus… twice.
