These are like crazy colored candy - there is something almost charmingly juvenile about the look and (massive) size of these watches. A woman putting one on her wrist will feel like a girl again as the large watch dwarfs her forearm and offers an almost amusingly obnoxious display of sparkling colors. These Ritmo Mundo Persepolis models are in the "Multi-Gem" collection, but I like to call them "wild gem" watches. They have steel (and possibly other metal) cases totally covered with a variety of gem-stones. All Persepolis watches features double-sides faces that flip around in the case. The pictured model has two automatic movements that are partially skeletonized. There are also quartz models as well. Like I said, the watch is large - really large. The pictured model is over 50mm wide (try sporting that ladies). Though I think there are a few smaller versions as well. Prices for Ritmo Mundo Persepolis Multi-Gem models start at about $11,000, and go up to $45,000 for those like the above version with gems all over the dial and case.
