Let’s face it, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] probably wouldn’t be nearly as famous as he is if he was a minimalist that kept things to a dull roar.  We love him for his over-the-top personality and outrageous behavior.

Lucky for us, Kanye’s ridiculous style and killer beats make him one of the most entertaining AMP artists to check-in with.

And what does the man with everything need?  The obvious answer is a watch emblazoned with jewels that are fashioned in a way where they are fashioned to look just like his face.  You have to see this to believe it!

According to Luxist the watch is intricately made using gold and diamonds:

Tiret claims it took them over five months to create the dial. The dial itself is in gold toned mother-of-pearl, with a combo of white, yellow, brown, and black diamonds. The bezel is lined with very large diamonds as well.

The watch is said to have a total of about 8 carats of stones. Kayne’s face has been immortalized on the dial – complete with sunglasses. Retail price for this is said to be about $180,000, and is custom made specially for each client.

What time is it for Kanye?  Kanye time, every time!  And for $180,000 it better tell time and say outrageous quotes just like Kanye.

I guess they only way we’ll know for sure how it works is if Kanye lent it to us, and we bet that’s not happening anytime soon.  But a girl can wish, right?
