Timepiece Tuesday: Marc+Spring Gives New Meaning to “Timeshare”

You’ve heard of timeshares before (usually in the company of billowy aloha shirts and drinks with umbrellas).

The base price of $349 seemed like a forgone conclusion, but the big reveal was that the “Edition” line of watches would cost upwards of $10,000. Yep, you’re starting at five figures for the opportunity to buy a gilded version of the same $349 watch. Naturally, we’ve got a better idea of how to spend that 10 grand, on some serious timepieces.

Herewith, the 10 watches you should spend $10,000 on instead of the Apple Watch.
