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]
