Poor Jacob the Jeweler is currently a ward of the state I believe.

And a friend of mine in Houston is currently the go to guy for these type of watches:



Anybody like this kind of stuff?

I didn't say that I personally like it but my friend is the Bling Bling King.

When I get a chance, I'll go to his shop and photograph myself in some of his creations.

He sells a lot to NBA, NFL and Rap guys.

It really is kind of gaudy but is fun to wear and have everyone look at you.

I know Jacob the Jewelers story, and I think that he had pretensions to compete with Harry Winston in some areas while also selling to Detroit gangsters.

My friend is focused and pretty much the undisputed Bling Bling King.

Loving the contrast between this and the gaudiness posted above.

Jaeger Le Coultre Extreme World Chronograph
This is the boutique version in platinum limited to 30 pieces. It comes on a black croc strap with the bright orange rubber for change. I have only ever worn it on the orange strap once but frequently wear this watch on its original black strap with casual wear.
There is a normal version in stainless steel which is black dial with red details instead of the grey dial with orange details. It's a quite popular sports watch for people who can wear large watches.

Either we must flip popular watches quickly for a profit or hold on to them for a loooong time. With a nice one like that GP, I would just keep waiting.
