    Conspicuous watches

    The 'What do you think of my new watch?' thread ( https://forums.watchuseek.com/f2/what...h-3000282.html ) just made me wonder what other conspicuous luxury watches there might be out there...
    Remark that by conspicuous, I do mean eye-catching, but not necessarily in a positive way. Kanye West's gold custom-made Tiret comes to mind!

    I suspect there will be a lot of overlap...

    Leopard Daytona will definitely pop up, so I'll post this.

    This might not be to everyone's taste, but personally I love this g-shock (I've been trying to get hold of one, but unsuccessfully):

    I like peacocks. They are beautiful birds.
    People acting like peacocks - not so much...

    Re: Conspicuous watches

    Having spent several years in Saudi, most of these so called luxury watches are eye catching but oh my ... gaudy comes to mind.. and oh my.. more money then people know what to do with is the other thing that comes to mind.. right up there with large gold chains and bracelets. That only my opinion!!
