Kanye may have underpaid for custom-made watch

I think Kanye West should have blown more than $180,000 on this custom-made yellow gold Tiret watch adorned with his own face. The “Kanye” portion of the watch is encrusted with only eight carats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds. A few more Ks could surely have lent themselves to something more resemblant of a human ear, or smoothed the bulbous terrain of his jowls and chin. When I commission custom-made watches of my face, I tend to allow a full year instead of Kanye’s “five months to create the dial of the watch itself, which is made of a gold-colored mother-of-pearl.” And why are the diamonds on the border so small? This is a disappointment. [PopEater]

    Fantastic Annie, as always!

    Well, Tiret still will get major PR steering rappers away from Jacobs Jewelers when they want someone to customize one of a kind experience of crappiness…so it all works out for everybody.

    Don’t ever leave us again, Annie.

    I agree completely Annie.

    That is sooo cheap. Mine, for instance, cost around 750K. It has my name in diamonds, surrounding my face. At the top of each hour, a tiny bird pops out and says, “coo coo.”

      well, mine cost 11.8 mil, is encrusted in unobtainium and every hour an actual bird is released. one second later a pure platinum bust of kanye swings out from the side and says, “I’m sorry, but BeyoncĂ© had one of the best videos of all time.” it then falls off and i eat it. while it does cause partial blindness, it also gives me the power of prophecy for about 10 minutes. i wear it to the track and poker games and it practically pays for itself! thanks kanye!

        Dear Jessica. I am so glad you liked The Chosen One. I have thought a lot about witirng a sequel, and I don’t think that I will. However I do have two new books out that you may enjoy. GLIMPSE and MILES FROM ORDINARY, though neither one of them are about polygamy.

    the author does realize that the image she is commenting on is stretched; it’s a circular face. hard to make sarcastic comments when you dont have the right information. i realize that EW isnt the national post or new york times, but some investigative research may help. but who wants to read about facts, right?

    • Mr. Holloway

      It’s a silly post about Kanye’s ridiculous watch…you sound like you’re a lot of fun at parties.

  • AndrewJ

    Hahahaha! Hooray for Annie!

  • edmonton girl

    The guy makes great music, but what a loser. Who puts their own face on their watch? Love yourself much, Kanye? Dumbest ever…

  • Carmen SanDiego

    You are fantastic, Annie
