    Concerned that your diamond Tourbillon doesn't stand out? You can always go for the Monopoly edition :thumbsup:

    I am honestly afraid to ask about the price.

    Art is subjective of course, one mans art is another mans rubbish, and I don't really have an opinion on Alec Monoply's art. However, there doesn't seem to be anything artistic about this watch, really... it's just a watch with paint splashed on it. Won't the paint peel off anyway?

    It's a piece of art. You're not supposed to wear it.

    Wait, so there doesn't seem to be a Diamond Tourbillon, so they made him a diamond one and he chucked some paint on it... that doesn't sound so much like art as plain stupid. Oh I must be so very old, or a philistine. Whichever...

    What'll be particularly amusing will be when you drop it off at a watchmaker and he expertly removes all of the paint from the watch during service

    People rejoice!

    A year from now, these will be all over ebay and classifieds at a ridiculously low price.

    Invest in a bottle of thinner and you'll own a modern Carrera.

    Here's a thought:
    Why not have the artwork limited to a NATO strap and the packaging?

    I guess TAG might have a problem if they use the Monopoly figure.. which renders the association a bit pointless.

    I've been thinking about this myself. The TH lawyers must draft/have some sort of licensing agreement, in order to use the likeness of the Monopoly characters on the new publicity and products.

    The white thing?

    A filter so as to inhale paint fumes.
    Although it could improve creativity :taunt:
