  2. I'm not surprised you found that most women have a soft spot for shiny things. So do cats, but I haven't yet seen an editorial on this site written by one. In other words, an obsession with glitter doesn't mean you have refined PS3 controller good taste or even two IQ points to rub together. As jewellery - something static and not needing to be practical, this is forgivable. However, these are finely crafted watches - what's on the inside, underneath all the whorish makeup actually matters. Men like shiny things too but there's a point when it is just too much.It wasn't until I needed to go ring shopping did I really learn to appreciate diamonds. As a guy, I just always assumed diamonds were for women. Sure some men have diamond wii controller rings and earrings - but that hardly represents the norm, at least here in the United States. Diamonds are a sure-fire sign of wealth, but they also represent the most basic and arguably unsophisticated form of luxury features - being really shiny. Though it does help their cause that diamonds are inherently rare. What I do however love, are watches. So what happens when you combine these two things?The "full pave" (or totally diamond covered) watch in the United States is often a simple code for "I have tattoo supply too much money, and perhaps not as much taste." While jealousy might have something to do with those thoughts, it is true that simply covering something normal with diamonds is a less than difficult (albeit expensive) way of adding luxury. That would be ignoring a lot of the really nice diamond covered watches out there. Easy to Mini Speaker make fun of and perhaps taboo to wear - the diamond covered luxury watch remains an extremely powerful force that is hard to resist if you can afford one. It is like buying a private island: it might be just too excessive to ever actually justify, but secretly you want one and all the stigma that comes with it. This is akin to walking around with a crownRecently I got to test my feelings on the all (or mostly) diamond covered watch. I was in no better place to do it... Hong Kong. They don't joke about Asia being the premier place for watch consumption. I challenged myself to not spot Digital Photo Frame something watch-related for a full minute while driving around the city. It never happened. From ads to shops, the city is literally watch-crazed. Being there makes you truly believe that high-end watch brands are taking over the world.While there, I was lucky enough to be part of the 2012 Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair. And yes, clocks are actually part of the fair. A unique area of the google shopping fair was a hall of luxury, sponsored by local high-end watch retailer chain Prince Jewelers. Prince set up a series of extremely decadent fully diamond-studded timepieces from brands such as Blancpain, Breguet, Piaget, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Franck Muller, and more. These aren't the watches you see in brand ads, nor the ones they show people like me at the big shows like Baselworld and SIHH. These fully diamond covered creations are either exclusive cheap watches to special markets, or sometimes even one-of-a-kind luxuriesSome totally diamond covered watches are head-to-toe lined with diamonds. 745TDBanty 130816
