On a trip to the John Varvato’s store (aka the old CBGB), we stumbled upon Ernst Benz, a Swiss luxury timepiece company. We looked at the Mario Batali (yes, the chef) designed watch. Priced around ~$6,000, this watch is limited to 250 pieces per size. The watch comes in 3 sizes (which are shown above): 36mm, 40mm, and 47mm. You can purchase them at any of Mario’s 11 restaurants, or the John Varvato’s store on Bowery. 15% of sales from these watches go to the Food Bank of New York…but we doubt you can write off this purchase when filing taxes.
