This watch is thinner than a quarter

In recent years, we have found ways to revolutionise even the oldest tech. With watches, that's tended to mean smartwatches, putting mobile tech onto our wrists. But one new design has gone back to the basics, seemingly just to prove a point. And it'll cost you almost two million dollars to own. 

The new Richard Mille RM UP-01 Ferrari watch holds the world record for being the world's thinnest watch. Designed by Richard Mille (if you hadn't already guessed by its name), it's no thicker than a quarter. According to Gizmodo, the watch will set you back a hefty $1,888,000 – yikes. And no, this is one watch we aren't expecting to find any discounts on soon, but if you fancy a saving on an Apple Watch, see our roundup of the best Apple Prime Day deals.
