Gadgets on watches, pretty routine, but it all started decades ago with watches like this. The Kilfitt UKA 659 is an early prototype with an analog camera attached with shutter speeds up to 1/1000 sec and special film disc.

"The Kilfitt UKA 659 camera watch is a one-of-a-kind prototype developed during the 1960s in the Munich laboratory of famed optician Heinz Kilfitt," BornRich explained. "The noteworthy thing is that it wasn't that easy task to create a camera watch back in the 60's."

It's up for grabs on eBay for just under $60,000.
