Would You Pay Mercedes-AMG GT Money for a Pimped-Out Apple Watch?

Folks over at Apple might have decided to take a timid step into the luxury timepiece industry and disrupt the calmness of the $38 billion Swiss watch world. But it’s not like the high-end jewel makers will get intimidated that easy. Take Goldgenie, the exclusive household items maker who just revealed their Apple Smart watch line. The most expensive model costs as much as Mercedes-AMG’s second fully in-house built car. Yep, Mercedes-AMG GT money.

By now you might have heard about Tim Cook’s clever move, introducing eccentric luxury to the company’s high-end products. The new Apple Watch ranges from $349 to $17,000 depending on how big your gizmo-ego is and, of course, how deep your pocket gets. This means, they are planning to start competing with the customization brands, you know those who are normally taking care of these enhancements “issues”.

As expected, a proper answer was not late to arrive, and the most exclusive of them all probably is Goldgenie's. The company has recently revealed its premium collection of customized Apple Watches wrapped in solid 18-carat gold and encrusted with precision cut diamonds.

Dubbed the “Spectrum” collection, the smart timepieces come in both Stainless Steel and 18-carat Gold Edition as starting points, and span several jaw-dropping designs in a collection of luxurious finishes and materials.

According to Luxury Launches, the eccentric company will also offer python straps in “vivid hues of Seville Orange, Fuchsia Pink, Sea Green, Black and Cherry Red.” That is if you don’t feel like going for the straps of beige and black top grain calf leather, natural toned python, or crocodile skin.

How much, you ask? Well, prices start at $3,000 which is what you pay for a gold plated stainless steel model. The most expensive model will set you back $163,000, which will buy you the full diamond encrusted solid 18k Gold Apple Watch edition.
