Is $2.5 Million Too Much For A Watch?

First up, let’s be straight with this, it is up to someone to decide exactly how they want to spend their cash – but, we have to question Jay-Z’s claim that he spent $2.5 million on his wristwatch.

Jay was rapping at the Webster Hall reopening last weekend when he dropped a freestyle that noted how many dollars he had dropped on his time-piece.

“Blueprint on my wrist cost 2.5, only thing that flips the script between you and I, I tried to put em’ up on the art then, I got in one, got out at a hard six.”

Word has it that the sapphire case alone took 3,000 man-hours to make – at a cost of $2.5 million. It’s definitely extravagant, but it did get us to thinking what good that money could have been used for instead of just flaunting…

Of course, everything is relative when you have the sort of money Jay has – but still, is it just a little bit gauche to be flaunting that sort of materialism when there are people out there starving and struggling to make ends meet?

We love Jay, but is this too much in reality?

What do you think?
