Kanye West Buys $180K Custom Watch That Bears His Own Face [PHOTO]

Kanye West plunked down $180,000 for a watch from New York blingmaker Tiret that depicts the rapper’s visage in 8 carats of diamonds. The custom-made watch took Tiret 5 months to complete — just in time for the release of his new single “H.A.M.” The jeweler previously created a custom watch for hip-hop star Usher.
While rap artists are known for their flashy and ostentatious jewelry, Kanye West has taken his adornment to new heights. We’ve seen Gucci Mane rock a blinged-out Bart Simpson chain, Busta Rhymes sport an icy map of New York City, Yung Berg floss a sparkly Decepticons logo, and T-Pain swing a $400,000 diamond-studded chest piece that simply says “Big Ass Chain,” but as usual, Kanye has found a way to outdo the competition when it comes to showing out.

After appearing with a $300,000 chain and charm featuring the Egyptian god Horus, and four-finger pyramid ring at the BET Awards last summer, Kanye has recently been seen around town wearing a custom-made yellow gold Tiret watch adorned with his own face.
