These is a difference between watches with diamonds, and watches with mostly diamonds. Each of these pictured watches are mostly diamond-covered to the degree that they are "diamond watches." Mere "diamond decorated" watches might have a few around the bezel, or diamond hour markers. Those can't compete in these leagues. Part of the problem with a diamond covered watch is that you often can't wear them alone. I mean you can, but diamond-covered watches need some other diamond-covered things on your person while wearing them. I suggest a diamond-covered tie. Or if you are more casual that day, diamond socks. They aren't that comfortable oddly enough, but they look great when people get a peek under your trousers.
As a former materials science guy, 'plasma coated ceramic' is descriptive but unspecific. Equivalent to 'polymer coated metal.' Plasma is just a state of matter, kind of like an excited gas, and ceramic is a whole class of materials too. Given Rado's long experience with exotic materials, I expect this to be super durable, but I also wonder what it is!

The Romain Jerome Space Invaders watches are part of the Moon Invader collection, which itself was an extension of the Moon Dust DNA collection. The Moon Invader watch range has a case that resembles a moon lander of sorts, and uses some metal taken from Apollo XI spare parts. On the back of the watch is a special coin-style emblem that has a moon surface motif. Whether it has meaning on the watch is not relevant, it does seem to help complete the package.
Are watch makers exploiting their relationships with athletes a bit too much? New Orleans gets a new American watch maker who makes weird stuff. Weird but maybe wonderful and very expensive Cecil Purnell timepieces.
Even with the steeply angled lugs, it wears tall and seems taller due to vertical sides. The machined buckle is a delight, nicely made and engraved with "Helson."
Inside the Horizon KAWS watch is a Swiss ETA 2892 automatic mechanical movement. The case is water resistant to 50 meters and the watch feels good on the wrist - as most all Ikepod watches are. The unique creation will speak the loudest to KAWS fans and collectors. Especially the more dedicated collectors who purchase KAWS' original works. This interesting collaboration watch is a good thing, and I like it when artists unfamiliar with the wrist watch world get involved with these types of projects. Price for the Ikepod Horizon by KAWS watches is ,000 each.
