Poker Face
The Christophe Claret Poker timepiece took a pair of watchmakers working full-time for over 2 years to create. In addition to functioning as a watch, the timepiece allows up to 3 people to play Texas Hold’Em. The watch packs in 32,768 different combinations, i.e. 98,304 combinations for 3 players. The probabilities were calculated so that each player has approximately the same chances of winning. The dial has over 77 components, including ruby and titanium hands…and if you breathe on the sapphire crystal, a pin-up girl is revealed. Vegas, baby!; $195,000;

Game Time
