Million Dollar Watch Goes for Half Price at Amazon.composted by MR WAVETHEORY at 12/05/2006 06:17:00 PM
Back a while ago, I wrote an article about outrageously expensive holiday toys for the kids that included the LEGO Mindstorms NXT robot kit for $249.99 and Butterscotch My Furreal Friends Pony for $299.99. Back when I was growing up, you were happy if you got anything! Until today, I thought that kids toys were outrageously expensive. Not anymore. Try buying a gift for your wife! Amazon.com, Inc. (Nasdaq AMZN) has raised the bar for spousal gift-giving (if there is such a word). It is offering a million dollar diamond watch for sale online. The best part: it's going on sale for half price.
Amazon.com's Watches and Jewelry Store will begin carrying a 18K white gold and diamond watch, valued at one million dollars. Since Amazon so dearly loves its customers, it is making it for just $499,000. According to Amazon.com, Inc.,
This unique and hard-to-find diamond watch from Audemars Piguet contains a total weight of 53 carats of diamonds held in 18K white gold and arranged in rows of eight to form a supple 20 millimeter band. Additional round brilliant diamonds line the top cover of the watch case capped with a virtually scratch-proof sapphire crystal.
You can ogle at the Audemars Piguet Women's 18k White Gold and Diamond Watch all day long. The description is just dazzling and splendid. With all those carats, I wonder if my arm wouldn't just fall off from the weight. Doesn't it make you want to jump up and down? I am just dying to sell my house to buy it.
What, you mean you can't afford it? No worries.
Amazon customers will also find additional jewelry and watch items offered at significantly reduced prices, such as the Jaeger-LeCoultre Women's Reverso Cabochons diamond-encrusted watch, valued at $18,700 and available for $9,724; a one-of-a-kind GIA-certified 5-carat princess-cut diamond center ring with 142 round diamonds in 18k white gold, valued at $189,999 and available for $109,999; 4-carat diamond stud earrings, valued at $57,000 and available for $35,000; a 5-carat emerald-cut diamond-center ring with two 1-carat half-moon side diamonds, valued at $129,999 and available for $74,999.
At Amazon, there's something for everyone. Just don't forget to bring your American Express Black Card, aka the Centurion Card because Amazon.com won't just take any American Express Card to complete your purchase. Don't qualify for the minimum spending requirement of $250,000 for the Black/Centurion Card this year? Just pick up an Audemars Piguet for the wife as a holiday gift and you'll be as cool as James Bond (yes, you guessed it, Bond used an American Express Black Card to check into his hotel resort without a reservation in Casino Royale and yes it was issued by the American Express Company (NYSE AXP)).
