Weighing in at 9.25 carats, you will find the Nixon Rotolog watch, encrusted with 1,851 full cut white and black diamonds. A blend of punk rock complete with skull imagery, this time piece is the perfect compromise, bringing some serious bling along with it.

Implications - The punk-rock stereotype has been associated with a grunge feel. However, with recent trends in fashion, the idea that punk-rock can be glamorous is a concept that companies have been able to capitalize on. By offering luxurious products, such as diamond-encrusted watches, companies are able to appeal to a broader market. Additionally, by enabling a badass feeling to an item composed of diamonds generates a rebellious feeling in the wearer.
