THERE’S BLING AND THERE’S OBSCENE
The gulf between rich and poor yawns wider and more irrational. As wealth, for some becomes an abstract concept, ordinary people take to the streets to protest austerity or to demand democracy. In that context, should anyone be bent out of shape because a few tasteless assholes want to own a $3 million diamond watch. Why the fuck not? That’s how the French Revolution got started.
“This year Hublot makes another big bang with this baguette diamond covered 18k white gold Big Bang tourbillon watch. This follows up the Million Dollar Bing Bang from a few years ago that used black diamonds. The $3 Million Big Bang has something like 142 carats of diamonds all over the case, dial, and bracelet. Most of them are large baguette-cut stones and they look marvelous. Pieces like this are made to order for the right type of people. This isn't the type of watch you can just walk around in. Though at the right social event, the guy wearing the diamond encrusted Hublot that sells for an obscene price might have his taste and sanity questioned, but certainly not his success.”
