Jaquet Droz - The Grande Heure GMT

The Grande Heure GMT from Jaquet Droz has two hands, but both of them are hour hands. Grande Heure From the description: >Never before has a watch presented such a clear, effortless indication of two time zones. This technological development is enhanced by the majestic hands in the form of a compass, a detail which hints at the navigational instruments used by sailors of another era. The red hand indicates local time while the blued steel hand shows the time at the destination. When the two hands come together in the same time zone they merge into a single, bicolored indication of the exact time. How much does it cost? Well, if you have to ask, you can't afford it. (About $25,000, I think.)
