Tiret Creates Unique Wristwatch for Usher

Dec 20, 2010
Usher, a world-famous hip-hop artiste, is also a passionate watch collector. His fans often see him wearing some showy timepiece during his grand entrances. The artiste loves gem-paved accessories and many things he uses feature his portrait. Now, Usher has commissioned an exclusive wristwatch from Tiret, a New York based jeweler and watchmaker.

The new Usher wristwatch demonstrates an oblong oval case. The dial shows off Ushers face composed from 1106 differently colored diamonds, with the total weight of about 10 carats. The diamond-sparkling timekeeping accessory was among the exhibits at the Natural History Museum in London.

The watch is animated by two Swiss ETA chronograph quartz movements, displaying time in two different time-zones.

The celebrity acquired the amazing watch for 250,000 US dollars. The timepiece was housed in a box that also represented a humidor for 78 cigars.
