What is so special about this 100K Swiss watch?

=$100K Watch Shows the Earth from Above=Fri Aug 17, 2007 5:30PM EDT

Want the right wristwatch to go with that new $88,000 Vertu phone on your belt? Check out this platinum watch from Swiss timepiece-maker Ulysse Nardin, a one of a kind (or rather, 99 of a kind) gem that gives you a UFO's-eye view of the Earth—all for the bargain price of $100,000.
No, it's not encrusted with jewels and it doesn't do Bluetooth, but the Tellurium J. Kepler Limited Edition watch (only 99 were made) has something you won't find on your everyday Timex: a rotating representation of the globe as it might be seen from above the North Pole, complete with a flexible spring representing the terminator between day and night, plus a perpetual calendar that makes a complete rotation once a year. Oh, and it's water resistant to 30 meters, although I'm not sure how the leather wrist strap will handle salt water.

This will be perfect and befitting once I have finished staking my claim for exploitation of the resources at the North Pole.

The most flipping thing is that this watch does exactly the same than my 80 swiss francs Swatch.... and, mind you, my Swatch has more power reserve.

One hopes that it doesn't have tellurium actually in it. If it does, then if the watch has a life-long guarantee, than it will be for quite a short period, not to mention the smell...
Breathing in tellurium vapour gives you garlic-smelling breath.
