Working replica of Snake Plissken's Lifeclock countdown timer watch from Escape From New York

The Lifeclock One: Snake Edition is a $300 licensed replica of the countdown timer watch worn by Snake Plissken in Escape From New York: it's very cool looking and faithful to the original prop, but regrettably, the designers have added in a bunch of "smart-watch" features (Bluetooth, an app, text-message and app notifications from your phone) that raise the price, create needless attack surface, and add complexity.

But the $300 price-tag isn't (just) driven by Internet of Shit integration; the watches are custom made, with high-quality leather straps, a choice of anodized aluminum or stainless steel back, and custom backing engraving.
