    Non-Rado chronograph content

    Interested in owning a Jaeger chronograph none of your friends own?
    Here's one that is expected to fetch
    US$1,800,000 - US$2,200,000


    It comes with a pretty neat car:

    Apologies for the photo size.

    Fine examples of both, but I'm VERY glad I haven't fallen for either Chronometers OR classic cars...

    Sadly, I'm enamoured of both, and my budget keeps many things I covet on the Unobtainium list.
    The good news is, I'm happy with my modest beat-up roadster and various vintage timepieces, separately...though I have considered mounting a suitable chronograph on the dashboard...

    Both of those are quite lovely.
    Solve all your doubts through question mode.

    Did you see the Breitling chronometer that is an option for the Bentley Bentayga?

    Is it my jaded self only, or do others agree this looks like they took inspiration from the Chinese tourbillons seen on eBay?

    I know what you mean, but then I've never been a fan of Breitling styling.
    I really don't see how they can justify 150k for it either.

    I think the Jaeger is winning this competition by a country mile.
