What's the difference between a geek and an aficianado? About six figures. While some people obsess over cellphones and gaming consoles, there's a whole society of wristwatch enthusiasts (or "Horophiles"  as they prefer to be called, for some reason) and that passion has created some astounding feats of mechanincal engineering. There's a word for these needlessly complicated and fiddly designs, it's called "watch porn".

But be warned, when I tried to google the term "watch porn" all I got was... normal non-timepiece porn. To save you that embarrassment, here's 12 of the most bonkers, most insane, and ludicrously expensive watches ever produced.
