I prefer tasteful opulence, something which dazzles yet remains classy. But sometimes, the dazzle factor is taken too seriously, making the bedazzled object a bit awkward. That seems to be the case with the Full Amazone Curvex watch for women by the Paris-based brand Charles Oudin. The watch features 26 carats of precious stones, including rubies and emeralds set into floral motif amidst a sea of diamonds. The watch comes enclosed in an 18-carat white gold case, and you can opt between a Swiss ETA quartz or Swiss Frederic Piguet automatic movement if you a particular and well-informed watch collector.
You can trade in the rubies with sapphires too. The watch is priced at €150,000 ($216,928).
