Picture Time for the First Time

If you are reading this, you may know that I've been more and more interested in old cameras lately. This remarkable timepiece is the first example of a camera watch. The Kilfitt UKA 659 camera watch prototype. It is amazing. I want one. But seeing as it just sold on eBay for 29,119.00 GBP ($57,818.68) I don't think I'll be getting one any time soon. That, and it's the only one of it's kind. Literally, this was the only one made.
Thing is, this watch is so cool, and with the ever rising popularity of steampunk, I can't help but think there is a market for recreations of this kind of thing. Keep the aesthetics, make the camera digital, cram a bluetooth in there, mass produce, and I buy. Deal?

Also, You may think this is totally pointless, but I thought it would be a lot of fun. This camera takes pictures on both sides of the device, both of what you are seeing (in front of you) and what is seeing you (and behind you).
