It can be argued that a power reserve on an automatic watch is a useless complication, and perhaps a day, date complication is questionable - date, fine, but if you don't know what day it is then there are more issues than telling the time.
A chiming watch is a valid complication if you look at the history of timekeeping. But that's neither here nor there - CW made a watch that has pretty much been universally lauded by review sites, and what's more all 600 were sold in two days for a price that those buyers (and many others who missed out) were more than prepared to pay.
I didn't get one because I do not like the aesthetic - nothing to do with how clever or otherwise the movement is but purely on the look. The movement though was heavily customised with I believe 50 brand new, not off the shelf, in-house designed parts. I'm really not sure what your angst is?
