    Confusing watch design wise. I know they can do better than this. TH should use heuer01 and just add elecM’s logo ritchie rich at 9’oclock (figurine like logo) add maybe just abit of collage of his paint on the bridges then that might look much better and can be considered as piece. Thats just me.

    I sincerely doubt Alec Monopoly's work will appreciate over time.
    The proposed art is nowhere near the ones delivered by contemporary street artists who are coveted around the world.

    See now on the TH website that its limited to 200 pieces and online only.

    There is no way to buy or preorder via the Swedish TH site, can you check if you can order it from US or other regions?

    Is Jim Dollares Alec in disguise? Dollars - Dollares??

    Anyway, I was going to say... let's cut Alec some slack, because at least he hasn't done a Marilyn Monroe artwork, which is basically the lamest thing anyone can possibly resort to. But then I found this...

    Still, I do think £1000 for a pretty unusual and limited to 200 pcs watch is a decent price.

    Judging by his Instagram feed, Millennials seem to be the core of Alec's fan-base. I am honestly curious, would there be less polarizing opinions if instead of a guy, an artist such as this were to be female? ::confused2::

    I tend to think so and have come to believe that there probably wouldn't be so much visceral reactions if that were to be the case.

    Gents, please keep the discussion focused on the watch itself. No need to get abusive towards Alec, no matter what you think of him, his work or his association with TAG Heuer.

    I would actually like one, honestly. But the fact that I only make 49 000 SEK (approx 5700 USD) per month means I have very limited means to save up for new watches. At the moment my watch budget is aiming to cover both my first TH and my next Breitling (you might know Im a Breitling lover in the heart as well).

    So I cant really motivate the purchase no :oops:
