Extravagant timepiece designers Tiret Watches have combined pop culture and ultra luxury in their most recent piece of glamor. The Kanye West Gold Watch is an $180,000 piece of wrist art.

The custom Kanye West Gold Watch took five months to make and is encrusted in 8k yellow, black, brown and white diamonds to construct the image of the music phenomenon. The final package is covered in a shimmering 18k yellow gold. The catch is that this watch won't be released for public sale: Kanye West bought it exclusively for himself.
