It is hard to look at this striking fish watch and think of it as a watch. It is more a piece of luxury jewelry that an A-list celebrity would wear than a timepiece fit for everyday people. Created by luxury jeweler Van Cleef and Arpels, the beautiful fish watch, which has been dubbed Carpe Koï, is "covered with 8,000 colored stones including yellow sapphires and spessartite garnets set into the yellow gold scales as well as white diamonds and blue tourmalines that form a spray of waves," writes Luxury Launches.

A three dimensional marvel, the fish watch was designed to resemble the famous carpe fish, which it is named after. It took 3,450 hours to make. The clock face itself is hidden in the mouth.
