Day Or Night?

The world of high end watches can get very strange. Where the least function with the highest complication, fetch the highest praise and highest price. This particular piece is no exception, but caught my eye however as I like the vague and slow representation of time. A watch using one of the most intricate mechanical movements yet devised for time keeping, the tourbillion, that basically only tells you if it is day or night. At $300k the target audience must be very well to do Vampires and Orcs.
