Technically not a watch but it is an adapted pocket watch in an iPhone Cover. Do not ask the price. Lets just say you can buy a few hundred iPhones for the price of this cover!
Here is the CEO of DeBethune using his iPhone4 with the cover on.

I think this DB can potentially become a classic for the brand depending how they manage this product. Two issues persist for me.
First, if in the event that the next generation of iPhone body dimension changes, will DB provide an update to current owners? Hopefully they will at a nominal cost!
Second, every known audio speaker uses a kind of magnet as one of its components. However small it may be, there may be some risk of the pocket watch movement being magnetised over time due to the proximity.
Then of course there is the China Factor. I will not be difficult for a determined Chinese replica factory to make something at low cost at 80% of this quality.

I just bought a new Iphone a couple of weeks ago. Reason i had to get a new phone was because I broke it due to me dropping it for the one millionth time. Can't imagine having something this nice, i'm just too reckless.

You could use this excuse to get the DBM! Although dropping it with the DBM would mean that the pocket watch will be damaged!
