Of all the gadgets and “things” I’ve talked about on this blog, the Erwin Sattler Thesaurus Desk is my favorite. This truly is a watch lover’s dream come true and a must have (not really) for a true (rich) watch geek.
Just look at this thing, it looks beautiful as a desk, the finish on the wood is amazing, it’s totally impractical for any other use, by the looks of it, its going to be very expensive, and last but not least, you’re going to need a hell of a lot of watches to fill this bad boy up. So in other words, this thing is totally useless and I LOVE IT!!
I don’t think there is a better way to announce to the world your friends that you have more money than god and that you are a true watch geek and you don’t really care that you have a cell phone that tells time and is probably more accurate than your most accurate automatic watch.
The Thesaurus desk not only stores your watches in style, it also has two built in watch winders that pop out of the top of the desk, very James Bond like.
Some info on the Thesaurus desk:
Erwin Sattler is famous for making high-end watch winders, watch furniture, and even watches. So in keeping with that tradition, the Thesaurus desk is made out of very expensive looking aged wood that has 13 layers of black varnish on it. The interior is lined with no-slip alcantara leather so your expensive watches can sleep in comfort. The exterior dimensions of the desk are (in case you need to clear things out to make room for the desk) 65.4 inches wide, 33.1 inches deep and 29.1 inches tall.
As I mentioned earlier, the desk has hidden watch winders which can be activated with a remote control, that feature is surely going to impress your rich friends. The remote can also turn on 16 LED lights to shine on your watches. The winders also come with a USB connection so you can program the winding action for each watch individually.
I’m not sure about the price of the Erwin Sattler Thesaurus Desk, but I know it is going to be very expensive, probably more expensive than the house I live in.
