Lust Object (?): This $3,749 Watch

We just received a note about this watch which reads:

It’s elegant, refined and sparkles with 108 brilliant-cut pave diamonds. It’s the stunning Hermès Diamond Kelly watch and will be available to purchase in a special “editor’s pick” luxury online private sale starting at 8 am PST this Friday, January 21 on Billion Dollar Babes.

Retailing for $6,450, this classic Hermès lock watch will be available for just $3,749 on Billion Dollar Babes. 52 diamonds grace each side of this gorgeous stainless steel watch. Totaling nearly half a carat, the diamonds are distinguished by ratings of VVS clarity and rare white colors F and G. The mother-of-pearl face, which has four diamonds on it, is set off beautifully by the black alligator wristband. Presented in a signature Hermès box, the watch comes with instructions, International Guarantee and Certificate of Authenticity.

Just $3,749! What a pittance! I think this is a good idea, but that might just be because I’ve spent the morning hoovering cocaine mixed with diamond dust and defenestrating peasants (interns). So I’m in a great mood.

But, you know, for non-evil oligarchs, does this watch really look like it’s worth $3,749? Some people – poor people - might wonder if the elegance, refinement and overall sparkliness will outweigh the fact that the face is going to keep bumping around awkwardly on your wrist.

    there’s no point in lusting after a watch, except if it’s a Breguet Marine. (You can find one for as little as $12,000 on ebay)

      I’d add (though significantly less cash required) the Omega Constellation series to that. Now those are classic, distinctive, and utterly drool-worthy…and you can still pick some of them up for less than Hermes’ newest creation.

      I always wondered–if you’re going to spend that amount of money on a watch, wouldn’t you want it to be from somewhere known for making watches, not purses?

    So, this would be great if it weren’t fugly.

    I’d rather have a Tank, honestly.

    Although I’m perfectly happy with my Coach watch: pretty, doesn’t bump into things, and cost about a tenth of the SALE price of this one.
