Swiss watch fanatic Shawn Carter (aka American rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z) has released his own new timepiece, from the company that currently manufactures the most expensive watch in the world, Hublot. The watch’s face cutout falls in line with the cross design of his upcoming collaboration with Barney’s. This sleekly designed timepiece will be available starting November 30th at Barney’s “A New York Holiday” pop-up shop, and comes in two editions. The black ceramic is in a set of 250 and retails for $17,900, while the other, an 18k gold version, has been produced in an edition of 100, selling for $33,900.
