Tiret makes a gold-and-diamond Kanye West watch



tbd-kanywestwatch011411.jpgNew York-based luxury watchmaker Tiret has introduced a new timepiece featuring non other than Kanye West, with enough gold and diamonds on it to match the hip-hopper's teeth. What do you expect from a company founded by designer Daniel Lazar and Damon Dash? says the watch is made of 18k gold and comes with either a gold bracelet or reptile strap. The $180,000 timepiece has two Swiss quartz chronograph movements, featuring Kanye's face on the dial, which is made of gold-toned mother-of-pearl. The case is lined with white, yellow, brown and black diamonds totalling about 8 carats. 

Each watch is specially made for each client, but we personally prefer the one Tiret made for Usher last month. That one rings in at $250,000, though, so we may have to settle for Kanye.
