Custom jewelery designers, Tiret New York are helping a number of high-status celebs keep up with the time in a real way.
Shown below is the face of Kanye West embedded on an oblong “Second Chance” watch case design, and dipped in 18k yellow gold.
According to the luxury site Luxist, the watch comes with a gold bracelet or reptile strap, and the watch dial features two Swiss quartz chronograph movements. So you have two times, two chronographs, etc… The real allure is in all the jewel work. Tiret claims it took them over five months to create the dial. The dial itself is in gold toned mother-of-pearl, with a combo of white, yellow, brown, and black diamonds. The bezel is lined with very large diamonds as well. The watch is said to have a total of about 8 carats of stones. Kayne’s face has been immortalized on the dial – complete with sunglasses. Retail price for this is said to be about $180,000, and is custom made specially for each client.
