One-Of-A-Kind 1960s Camerawatch

The Kilfitt UKA 659 camerawatch ia a tiny analog camera stuffed into a wristwatch. It's the only one in existence, created as a prototype in the Munich laboratory of famed optician Heinz Kilfitt in the 60's. It has a 1.3mm-10.5mm lens, shutter speed from 1/15 sec to 1/1,000 sec, and it uses a custom film disc. It's up for sale on eBay with a Buy It Now price of almost $60,000. The listing on eBay has more photos of the camerwatch plus images of the film it uses and examples of the photographs it has taken. [via]

Quite a find. I think the lens marking means f/3, 10.5mm (it's not a zoom lens.)
