…The URWERK UR-202 is full of air?


The UR-202 is the world’s first wristwatch to feature “an innovative new winding system regulated by compressing air utilizing miniature turbines”.

    Time on the UR-202 is displayed using telescopic minute hands operating through the middle of three orbiting and revolving hour satellites.
    The telescopic minute hands precisely adjust their length to follow the three vectors marking the minutes: 0 -14, 15 – 44, 45 – 60. Extended, they enable the UR-202 to display the time across a large easy-to-read, dial. Retracted, they allow for a very wearable and comfortably sized case; thus providing the wearer with the best of both worlds.

If you’ve got the financial fortitude, then the UR-202 is available in either red gold, white gold, black PE-CVD platinum, and ALTiN steel.

One of each please…

…Hot Wheels can be expensive?

Diamond Hot Wheels

How do you make the world’s most expensive Hot Wheels car?

Easy: Cast it in 18-karat white gold, and cover it with 2,700 jewels weighing nearly 23 carats.

This “toy” was created by Jason the Jeweler, and celebrates Hot Wheels’ 40th anniversary, as well as the production of their 4 billionth car. Blue diamonds take the place of paint, white and black diamonds take the place of the engine, red rubies take the place of the tail lights, and black diamonds create the “red line” tires. Even the custom case has 40 additional white diamonds in it, with one for each year in the “legacy of Hot Wheels”.

Though $140k for a car with zero horsepower is probably a bit much, the proceeds go to a good cause, so I’m sure someone is going to be a happy Hot Wheels owner soon enough.

…Kickbars make your shoes sparkle?


If you need another place to show off your diamonds (and emeralds, sapphires and rubies), then check out Kickbars, a white gold shoelace cover with sparkle.

Designed to capitalize on the limited edition sneaker market, Kickbars can be customized with any combination of jewels, and can be worn as a bracelet or a necklace if you’re going with a slip-on.

Ego not included.

…Mont Blanc makes expensive pens?


The Mont Blanc Boheme Royal Black & White pen marks the other end of the Mont Blanc pen spectrum when compared to the $15 Mont Blanc pen project (though it does illustrate nicely why such an alternative is necessary). This cartridge fountain pen features a retractable platinum-plated 18-karat gold nib, an 18-karat white gold barrel and cap set with a total of 1,430 brilliant-cut diamonds, 18-karat white gold rings and clip set with a paramount-cut diamond. Even the Mont Blanc star logo is made of 19 individual diamonds. I understand you don’t want to Bic the final touch on your million-dollar contract, but with a price tag of $150,000, you better hope that contract doesn’t fall through anytime soon or you’ll be signing life insurance policies with this brilliant work of art.
