My Ideal Wrist Watch

My ideal wrist watch must reflect my personality.
My ideal wrist watch must be Big, Vulgar, Flashy, and Expensive...
Just like me!

But to make a real impact...
I need a fuckin' rolex!

After all I'm a Rolex Romeo too!
 


My ideal wrist watch needs 5 things:

1- Rolex
2- Oversized
3- Gold
4- Diamonds
5- Personalized



ROLEX
Must be a Rolex since Rolex is the only watch name associated with big money in the collective mind of people.  Everybody know the Rolex and what it is.  EVERYBODY know that Rolex are the watches of the big shots.  The common man don't give a damn about the blank looking Patek Philippe.  The common man don't even know what Patek Philippe is.  If you ask him he will probably tell you that Patek Philippe is a law firm. 

So Rolex is the name to go if you want to show off.  And yes, I want to show off. 

 NWA wrestling world champion Ric Flair was always bragging about his Rolex watch.


Party animal and 70 Million dollar man Charlie Sheen's $700,000 very rare vintage Patek Philippe Ref. 2438/1 Watch 37mm wide in gold.  Too small and looks boring to me!  Yes, I know...  I'd just said a sacrilege!  Sorry!



OVERSIZED
My watch must be large, must be big, must be oversized.  Anything under 50 mm is too small for me.  But unfortunately, Rolex doesn't produce oversized watches?  The Yachtmaster II is 42 mm and the DSSD is 43 mm.  And I think there is an oversize DayDate II out there at 41 mm.  I've seen a Rolex Daytona model #  1116505-BKSO at 40 mm.  Problem, problem!  No, one a minute, the Deepsea Challenge 2012 is 51.4 mm.  Yes sir!  That's perfect for me.  The name and the size but can I get it in gold and diamonds?

Rolex Deepsea Challenge 2012  51 mm
approximately cost € 20-25.000
This watch looks indestructible!

GOLD
Yes, must be gold.  Since platinum will easily be confused for stainless steel.  So I'm yellow gold all the way.


Rolex Yachtmaster II 18k Gold
(43 mm case)


DIAMONDS
For sure, I like diamonds, I love diamonds.  So my watch need to be covered in diamonds.  Nothing is flashier than diamonds.



Rolex GMT MASTER II Black Automatic 18kt Yellow Gold Oyster Mens Watch
18kt yellow with a total of 99 diamonds (40 mm case)


Rolex Oyster Perpetual 18k Vintage Genuine Man Watch 1.32 Ct Diamonds
(30.5 mm case = too small for me)




PERSONALIZED
I know this one will scandalise all the watch purists out there.  I would like that my wrist watch have a personalised touch.  What about 'PYGOD' inscripted on both side of the bracelet.

JR Ewing's "Texas Timex", a Rolex with a highly customized monogrammed "J.R." bracelet, is a perfect exemple of what my ideal watch could look like.



Since Rolex doesn't produce over 50 mm watches in gold and diamonds.  I will stick to my current meticulously chosen wrist watch.



My beloved wrist watch is Big, Flashy, Vulgar and Expensive... 
Just like me!
