At least this is aftermarket stupid- those designer Apple Watches are official products. How many of these $17k series 1 models are gathering dust in a drawer, and can we guillotine their owners now?

Instead of obscene, gratuitous gold-plated or solid gold items,
Why not just buy the regular thing and keep an open briefcase full of money nearby?

It reminds me of someone else's decorative style. Someone else who is a fan of eastern European showy-ness.

Gold is really dense. Bet it screws up reception.

Possibly, I don't know for certain, but this is just an ostentatious display of wealth meant to intimidate poors as to the owner's "importance".

I know someone that used to work for BlackBerry and once in awhile they'd have to deal with some rich guy, usually a Saudi, with a solid gold phone that wanted repairs done to it.

No one wanted to go near the things because if a diamond or hunk of gold fell off it and was lost while under your care you'd be in some massive shiat.

I'm going to say it - if I won Powerball, I'd totally buy that.  No fancy cars, no mansion, no yacht - just the one completely over-the-top accessory.  At least phones have pretty much reached the 'good enough' point, so it ought to last for a while.

Honestly, if there's a problem here, it's that they're only charging $23-25K.  Stick another zero on there and make it a limited edition of 100 units, just to be SURE that it's truly exclusive.

Almost as dense as the people who would buy this ..

Back in the early 00s, I got a call from a headhunter about a job running a buying team for a major Moscow based consumer electronics retailer - referred to as "the Best Buy of Russia." It would have tripled my annual salary and came with a free apartment in Moscow, along with a car and a driver/interpreter (bodyguard?). The catch was I had to guarantee them that I would convince a dozen or so major global CE brands to do business with them direct vs. working through distributors and renegotiate more favorable terms. I told them I would think about it.

So, I called a friend of mine that worked at one of the brands they wanted. I told her that about this job offer and about the company's "requirements."

"Oh, I know them," she said. "They called us about a year ago and asked us to fly out to meet and discuss selling our stuff in their stores. I said sure, but then the Buyer informed me that I should arrive with a suitcase with $1MM in it and be prepared to hand it over to him after the deal - which I had no idea what that was going to turn out to be - was negotiated. I told them politely to fark off."

The idea of working with and negotiating deals side by side with some Teddy KGB motherfarker seemed cool for about 10 minutes before I came back to the reality that I feel bad lowballing the neighbor kid for mowing my lawn.

If you go on their website they have some interesting and surprisingly attractive cases. I kind of like the skeleton watch series. Also a couple of the leather ones. Many of them, however, are a "little" bit over the top. As for prices they definitely not cheap. One of them is around $80k...
