    Is someone seriously going to pay $10K for this ugly watch. Your paying $10K for a $350 watch with a computer chip and display. This isn't a handmade watch like a Rolex or Hublot. There is no intricate jeweled mechanism that takes months to assemble.

    Everyone who buys one gets a free tattoo of "Retard" on their forehead.

    Its 10k because that is what people will pay for it, like anything else in life.

    I don't know why people get so mad when things that are honestly frivolous imo are priced so highly. To some people 10k is like others spending $20. A 250k car to some people is the equivalent of a middle class person buying a corolla. Its all about relativity.

    You are a capitalist defending Apple. Let me ask you something. You are for companies and free trade putting Americans to work correct? then answer this, why do you defend a company that does none of the above? They dont manufacture shit here yet you still defend them, ponderous.

    It's 24K gold but the amount of gold used to make the watch is minuscule. This isn't a Rolex gold watch which uses a lot of gold including the band.
