    Would You If You Could? HM6 Space Pirate and ONLY $230,000

    Even if I could, I don't think I would buy one, but I must admit an utter fascination with it. Behold the HM6 Space Pirate for a measly $230,000.00!

    Nope. Would never be able to live with myself.

    I could live with myself, because if I could drop that much money on a watch, I'd have to assume I was mega-rich, but I just couldn't strap it to my wrist because while I find it fascinating, I also find it god awful looking.

    They should call it the Trump Tower -- costs so much to look that ugly.

    That's pretty cool.

    I'd have to have some "this for that" arrangement for charitable contributions if I was going to burn $230K on a watch.

    Not saying I wouldn't burn that cash though.

    In my fantasy watch buying Pinterest board I have one called lottery win.....you know Mega jackpot so much the Fed reserve rings up for a loan...well this is on the list as a recent addition because is is such a unique piece of thinking, the watch world would be poorer without people like MB&F. I think I actually prefer the one that looks like the back of a 70's car (can't remember the model off hand)

    Nope. That is gag-me-with-a-spoon ugly. If I had an extra $230k floating around, I can think of many other watches I'd like better.

    The image of this strapped to your wrist and the vintage look you're 'famous' for just don't go well together! No they don't!

    I'm afraid I would have to pass on this one even if I had the money.

    Give it 4 wheels, so you could use it as a toy, I might consider.

    If you come to a fork in the road; take it, and then put it down so someone else can use it.
