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.

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.
