A watch for a lifetime?

I can't remember clearly how many watches I've had in my life. :D I'm not sure myself, is it the watch or me that dun want to stay longer with each other. Today, I read The Times and came across with this advertisement about watch; men watch to be exact. It's called 'Ball Engineer Hydrocarbon Trieste Chronograph'. It is the world's first 7,500G shock resistant automatic mechanical watch. And guess what? This is the limited edition watch by BALL (only 1000 pieces worldwide).
Here's the specs;

And here, some reviews about the watch from a diver site;
