How much for a wrist job? A tenner normally, but for this one, over $30k

Re: Isn't that just a blingy band for the Gold watch?

Ah, you're missing the point of conspicuous consumption. The idea should be that it only fits one specific model of blingy thingy. When a new model comes out you order a new wristband - just because you can. There used to be a shop in Burlington Gardens (still there possibly) that sold this sort of stuff. You could buy black diamond encrusted phone cases that would only fit a single model of phone and much more besides.
