At first glance, the Swiss Alp Watch Final Upgrade looks exactly like the Apple Watch that is apparently loading something, but upon closer inspection, you’ll see that it’s a standard watch. Designed by H. Moser & Cie., this timepiece boasts a dial made from the world’s blackest material, Vantablack, and instead of a logo, there’s a shaded disc that mimics a loading wheel. This is a fully mechanical watch equipped with H. Moser’s handwound HMC 324 in-house caliber. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
Limited to 50-units worldwide and priced at $30,800 USD, it includes 14 iterations, with most being dial updates. Is it worth the money? Well, for those who like trolling Apple, the sub dial and hand replaced with a rotating loading gradient most definitely makes it so, aside from the DLC-treated stainless steel case with 96 hours of power reserve.
