…Gold is the new chrome?

Gold Plated Cars

Chrome has been the king of car plating for a long time now, but if Born Rich is to be believed, then Gold could soon be replacing it as the car cover of choice for the uber-rich.

The gallery that they put together includes gold plated Bugattis, BMWs, Porsches, Bentleys, Rolls Royces and DeLoreans, and each one is a show of gaudy excess.

Gold chain, greasy hair and 80s flashbacks not included.

…The Concord C1 Quantum Gravity is crazy?

Concord C1 Quantum Gravity

The Concord C1 Quantum Gravity watch is purely and simply a display of excess that you can wear on your wrist.

The mechanically wound movement fuels a three-day power reserve, and the energy that’s left in that reserve is displayed using a liquid filled glass column that rises and falls as the watch winds down. Yes, that’s right, I said liquid filled.

They’re only making 10 of these extremely exclusive watches, and if you have to ask, then I can guarantee you can’t afford one, but for the well heeled watch aficionado, this will more than likely be a must have.
