    Just wondering as it seems impossible to get one. (And I understand it is blue but it looks green to me). Not the Phillip’s one please.

    Wouldn’t if I could. It’s hideous.

    I do like the green, the T Blue is a bit much on that model for me. Not that I can afford either one at current secondary price and I don't have the contacts for a market purchase.

    Let’s not forget that that the auction was a fund raiser for the Nature Conservancy. So no, a watch didn’t really sell for that, it was a catalyst for a large donation. I’m not sure how all this works for tax purposes but I’d imagine that the retail value would need to be deducted from the donation value. It’s still a grotesque corruption of a understated design.

    Not even if I had won the $60 million Lotto Max draw on Friday!

    If you showed off wearing this in public on Instagram, with how much it stands out like a sore thumb and how much attention it’s getting, this watch could genuinely get you assassinated for it.

    At the kind of money it’s fetching and with how many there are around it could blend in with after being stolen, there are Italian Job type criminals that could justify targeting you.

    Just saw the NY Post … Front Page … The charity nuance is very subtle. Bottom line any thug who sees you with this on thinks he/she is in for a big score.

    I’m guessing it’s a perk of being a brand ambassador for Tiffany.

    One big publicity stunt. Pre-arranged surely
