    gag. what's the point of the whole current diamonds on the case craze in general? fine on a woman's watch, but for men? not so much.

    It's interesting to see our beloved tool watches crossing over to the hip-hop culture. I'd never own one, I do like the look, it's different

    How about a hublot big bang covered in diamond? Awful. I dont get it. Diamonds just ruin the tactical look of the watch.

    I do, it is a watch that is "not for you". Thank God, it takes all types or this world would be boring.

    I'd never own it, not a rock person, I can understand why some folks do. Sheesh, I can't even wear the shiny mesh bracelet I bought for my Marcello C Classic GMT, the bling grabs my eye (hey, maybe that why the hip-hop types like this stuff).

    Have you ever seen the work required to do the diamond bling right? It's a precision process as difficult as making a fine movement.

    First off, I admire the skill it takes. I also admire the skull that Damien Hirst created/comissioned which is adorned with 1200 diamonds set in pure platinum at 180 million dollars.

    I think its CONTRADICTORY to adorn a TOOL WATCH with jewels. If it was a rolex yachtmaster, I wouldent feel this way. Its a pilots watch, based on cockpit instrumentation. Adding diamonds to it is ridiculous.

    My guess is it is not marketed as much to hip hop culture as it is to guys who wear white robes to work and have prince or sheik in their title. Just a guess...
