The Marc Newson Hourglass For HODINKEE

The Marc Newson Hourglass For HODINKEE is described as "sitting at the nexus of art, design, and engineering" in prose usually reserved for Marc Newson's BFF Jony Ive when describing Apple products. Each run lasts ten minutes as 1,249,996 little spheres called "nanoballs" (ball bearings) run through it. There will only be 100 of them made - and they're $12,000 USD each. So act fast! What does this have to do with Leica? Note the careful placement of one in the product photos... And a Macbook. Just sayin'.
