Poor play cars, rich play watches, the richest play mechanical clock

Jeff Bezos, the founder of the U.S. Amazon.com, invested $ 42 million to build a 10,000-year mechanical clock, the “second hand” a year to go a frame, indicating that the “century” hand every 100 years to go a frame, chime tool every thousand years to chime once, its timekeeping life will be up to 10,000 years or so.

The clock is 500 feet high (about 152 meters), which is about the height of a 50-story building. Most of the parts are forged from stainless steel, and the bearings are ceramic. Schematic model: The clock is powered by solar energy, and it can also accommodate enough backup power to run for 100 years without the sun.

Steve Cohen’s Shark

A shark soaked in a formaldehyde solution by Damien Hirst.

In 2004, Steve Cohen paid $12 million (about $100 million at the time) for Damien Hirst’s “The Living Are Indifferent to the Dead” from “speculative collector” Charles Saatchi. Steve A. Cohen, known as the “king of hedge funds,” is obsessed with art collecting and has invested about $700 million in art to date. Cohen’s art collection began in 2000 and ranges from Impressionist paintings to contemporary art, from Picasso, Cézanne, Monet and Van Gogh to Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons, and he may have bought more than 300 works to date. For this Wall Street magnate, the price of this shark is actually just five days of his income.
