$96,500 Women's Watches

Timepieces from Cartier's Captive Collection are Bold and Beautiful

— January 31, 2010 — Fashion
Large wristwatches are definitely making the rounds right now, the bold and beautiful timepieces from Cartier's Captive Collection are no exception. Starting with a $22,100 price tag, the luxurious small-faced, large-bodied watches made with exotic metals and diamonds are valued as high as $96,500.

If you are considering the gift of time for your Valentine, one of these watches from Cartier's Captive Collection would make a fabulous gift, if you could afford the luxury price.

Implications - Now, I'm not usually impressed by rapper's speaking extravagantly about their jewelry on records, but looking at this Cartier brings me back to all the times I've heard rappers reference it. This particular timepiece comes in two different sizes, including a 35mm wide piece, and a massive 52mm wide one.

Paging Rick Ross, Jay-Z, and Lil' Wayne.
