Thinking about adding a "fun" watch to the stable. What's the consensus...

When I was in my 20s yeah now that I am in my 40s I prefer factory original. I would consider a SACO, Rainbow or SARU instead.

I think the Konstatin Chaykin Joker introduced in Baselworld 2017 is a much more entertaining and amusing timepiece and it's so much cheaper ~US 7550

As Steve said above, if you're after bling, there are some (better) factory choices.

In 1953 they used Rolex Oysters and oxygen on Everest.
In 1978 they managed without the oxygen.

Personally I like it. It takes a certain kinda guy and a certain kinda lifestyle to pull it off, but hey, if you like it then go for it.

I like it but would prefer factory even if it meant getting less diamonds for the money.
