This one-of-a-kind Hourglass by Marc Newson will be auctioned off at Only Watch 2011 in Monaco tonight.
Technically, there are no difference between this and the traditional hourglass from Basel 2010 , but the red tinted glass is absolutely beautiful.
Needless to say, the Ikepod Hourglass is one of those items that would be such a thrill to be able to display on one’s desk, coffee table etc.

A shop in Thailand replaced the sand in an hourglass with diamonds, 10,000 carats of them.
Before you go booking you ticket to Thailand, we should mention that the price tag on the world’s most expensive hourglass is a messy $6,400,000.
If you drop and break that one, plenty of people will help you clean up ^_^
