Bentley SUV offers optional $170,000 clock

The recently-unveiled Bentley Bentayga SUV is now the first word in luxurious, high-riding motoring. More than that, it is also now the first word in opulent optional extras, as it offers a Breitling clock in the dash that alone costs $170,000.

The timepiece in question is no Casio. It's called the Mulliner Tourbillon, and its 28mm case is machined from 18 carat gold — either rose or white. Beneath that lies a dial — in either natural, black ebony, or pearl — that has been adorned with 12 diamonds.......

wow thats nice is that the clock alone thats worth $170,000?
Yup. Clock alone.

I think the reasoning is, if you can afford a Bentley SUV, certainly you can afford a 170K clock in it to make it more special/unique. :D

I find it a hideous car, Bentley unworthy. But there must be a market for it so kudos to those who ordered one.

The car looks like a Chrysler SUV, and a mechanical clock in the car?? You have to ride over some pot holes to keep it wound?

Sure it is ridiculous, and yes it is more money then most people will spend on ALL of their cars in their entire lifetime, but you know what - I think it is cool.

Yes I think it is a dumb amount of money to pay for a car OR a clock, but again, if you have that type of money it is absolutely different and unique.

Good question above. I have NO IDEA how it stays wound unless their is a winder in the dash somehow??
