The Henry Graves Supercomplication was originally owned by American banker and art collector Henry Graves. He ordered the watch in 1933 from watchmaker Patek Philippe for 60,000 SF. The watch took over three years to make using the most advanced horological technique. The pocket watch was held in the Museum of Time near Chicago, IL for years until it was sold at Sotheby’s auction in New York City on December 2, 1999. This watch now resides in the Patek Phillippe Museum in Geneva, Switzerland.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
