I know that look. I’ve seen it before, and I don’t like it. While we sit in our gleaming new 2013 Range Rovers somewhere in the lost hinterlands of southern Utah called Hog’s Canyon, two very serious hikers in German-flag emblazoned gear stare at us with bemusement.

8500 diamonds, 300 rubies and two bars of pure white gold

No, that is no exaggeration — the UK’s self-appointed and vapidly named Luxury Beverage Company is crafting a bottle of single malt scotch that will run you a cool $6,200,000.

OriginTimes goatskin-lined testament to opulence

If you have 16 watches — and $100,000 (€75,000) lying around — then you’ll wanna pick up OriginTimes ridiculous Bugatti engine-block derived watch winder. Utilizing the Bugatti Veyron’s 16 cylinder engine, each goatskin-lined piston chamber fits and winds its own watch. [...]
