p Industrial designer Marc Newson, one of the people behind the Apple Watch, has designed a beautiful, expensive timepiece that’s worth $12,000.

Feast your eyes on the Hourglass.

The Hourglass is made of pyrex, about six inches tall, and filled with 1,249,996 copper ball bearings — oh, excuse me, “nanoballs” — which keep ten minutes’ worth of time.

Should you choose to buy it, you must put down a $6,000 nonrefundable deposit.

It’s not the most expensive timepiece Newson has ever designed.

He also had a hand in designing the original Apple Watch Edition, the most expensive version of which cost $17,000.
