When it comes to clothing and accessories, there is always the battle between fashion and function.
Sure, you want your coat to protect you from the elements, but you want it to look good as well. The same, it would follow, goes for sunglasses or a watch. You need it to do what it does while also looking good.
The reason we bring all this up is because Conor McGregor recently posted a close-up video of his new watch, which allegedly cost something in the region of $1 million. That's a lot of money for a watch, sure, but the other part is that it just barely tells the time.
The Astronomia Baguette Watch, which retails at around the million mark, is described as "the epitome of 21st century ultra-high-end watchmaking and a globally recognized symbol of Jacob & Co watchmaking expertise."

Needless to say, something like that is invariably going to draw commentary because it's a statement piece, right? It's going to draw the eye in. So, what did people think of it?
Well, as it turns out, not a lot.
Handy if you need to be in Ancient Runes but Divination also starts in 5 minutes. https://t.co/xtdX0BrlVf
