Now… you all would’ve already read about this IKEPOD x KAWS ‘The Horizon’ collaboration. It features a titanium case, Caliber ETA 2892, sapphire crystal, diameter of 44mm, is water resistant up to 50m, has a dial and rubber band designed by Kaws and will be available in 4 colorways. But what we cannot comprehend is the fact that they are retailing this watch for USD$14,000. Don’t get us wrong, we love both IKEPOD and KAWS and have been fans since forever, but to us this is daylight robbery. For USD$14,000, we’d rather purchase a Breitling, Bell& Ross, Oris, Tag, or any other time piece that’s “worth” that value. Sorry IKEPOD or KAWS, the watch looks great, but not something we see ourselves investing in. What are your thoughts?
