Girard-Perregaux Opera Three plays Tchaikovsky on a built-in drum set and keyboard


Got $625,000?

Then you can own this nifty timepiece, which has an interior music box made of a keyboard with 20 keys and a drum set with 150 hand-assembled pins.

It also plays Mozart.

Damn! For six hundred grand I'm going to want this coming out of my watch - the wildest, most intense, exciting performance of the finale to Tchaikovsky's 4th I've ever heard in my whole life...good old Barenboim. Incredible!!:

Oh, here's something scary for Halloween - I've done this before, but no matter, still good - Anne Sofie von Otter cutting into Schubert's "Erlkonig" with a vengeance. Subtitles. (Gotta love that "doodelee-doodelee-doo-doo-doooo" theme that's been used in zillions of Warner Bros. cartoons over the years!):
