Should Merkel, Sarkozy and the rest of the EU gang be searching for the perfect farewell gift for the hapless Papandreou they might like to consider this suitably nasty Artya ‘Bye Bye Euro’ watch.
Of course, with the state of European finances and with the watch costing approximately $6000, they might be forced to stick to a Chinese carriage-clock.
Filled with ripped up Euros, this Artya special also has a case that’s been subject to electric-shocks.
Probably rather like most EU leaders are feeling right now.
Here’s what Artya themselves have to say about this .. fun .. piece.
“The creative Brand ArtyA launches a tribute to “the sommet de Bruxelles
2011” to announce the end of the Euro currency. This unique Watch called “Bye Bye Euro” has a hand manufactured dial using real Euros passed in a shredder, the case as well has gone through an exclusive crushing process in the ArtyA Art & Workshop in Geneva, Switzerland. The ArtyA 1/1 “Bye Bye Euro” is powered by a high end Swiss automatic movement and the strap is braided kevlar to better absorb shocks. Sarkozy, Berlusconi, Papandreou and Merkel are invited to buy one in order to remember their dreams.”
