If you're going to build the world's most expensive SUV, it might seem logical to offer the world's most expensive in-car clock, as well.
At least, that's what Bentley plans to do when it starts rolling out the new Bentayga in a few months.
The full-size ute, with its leather and wood-lined cabin, will start at $229,100 in the U.S., but the price can bump with a variety of options, including a Breitling Mulliner Tourbillon clock. (Tweet This)
While a final price hasn't been set, the watch is expected to come in at around 150,000 pounds, or roughly $234,000—which could make it more expensive than the "base" Bentley Bentayga. The maker justifies the price by explaining the clock has "the most complex of watch mechanisms."
That means a mechanical, rather than electrical, self-winding mechanism. That's easy to operate when you're wearing one on your wrist, but to ensure the Mulliner Tourbillon stays wound on the dashboard, Bentley will build in an unusual mechanism that will spin the clock around three times every 15 minutes. And just to be sure—or simply to impress friends—a motorist will have a button to tap to spin the watch one more time.
