BLEEN: Black Widow (Mr Green)

Mr. Green? More like Mr. BL*EEN!
Have a look at what the creative minds at Ladiore Geneve have come up with...
While all the rage back in the beginning of 2011, this timepiece still sets the standard to which all bl*een watches are measured.

Limited to a production of 12 pieces, and named after a venomous spider, the Black Widow is 41.77mm tall and 51mm wide and made mostly of titanium. If the name hasn't scared you off, well maybe the $71,330 (US) price tag will.
