The use of electric vehicles is becoming ever more widespread and this shift in the type of engines used means not only the technology is moving forward, but also manufacturers try out new designs for their vehicles.

This amazing timepiece features no fewer than 709 invisibly set diamonds, which add up to a cool 22.5 karats.
