Lazy? For $480,000 This Machine Can Sign Your Signature

Ever since getting your pen licence, there’s always been pressure to perfect your signature. At the end of the day it’s super important for a functioning life, as you literally need to sign for everything from deliveries to your mortgage. So it’s makes sense that someone thought of the idea to create a device that takes the stress of perfection away from that next important signing. 

For the cheap price of US$360,000 you can acquire a beautifully personalised device from watchmaker Jaquet Droz, taking the best of watch design and putting it into the ultimate lazy use. The automaton “Signing Machine” is a pocket-sized mechanical that will sign the owners signature to exact specification each time. 

Made with 585 parts, it’s available made-to-order and is modified to the purchaser’s personal specifications. Along with a 4-digit numeric protection code, the device also comes with hand-engraved finishes in red gold, blackened hard wood and satin-metal. When fully ready, it’s capable of two full signatures with a power reserve indicator at the back to keep track. 

This was all put together to commemorate the brand’s 280th birthday, so it’s definitely a worthy celebratory item for someone with serious money.
