What are your opinions on diamond bezels or any diamonds on a mens watch for that matter?

For example a white gold rolex daytona with a diamond bezel (large diamonds not a million small ones)

Like this:
A man should not wear diamonds. Period.

Perhaps diamond hour markets on watches face wouldn't be so bad, but diamond bezels always look bad. No matter what, the diamonds look ill-fitted and it makes the watch look like a sh-tty prop from a rap video.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Exactly my thoughts, i always see people with diamond bezels on their watches and always think its looks kind of off or odd for a man. Just seeing how everyone else feels about it. Saw a few pages back someone posted an all diamond ap roo. Ruins that watch IMO.

It completely depends on how its done and how over the top it is.

I have had some diamond watches and they can be very nice if done properly IMO.

I am not a fan of paved out or diamonds everywhere, just high quality bezels on certain watches.

Here is my old Rolex with 3ct bezel.

I got tons of complements on it. To each their own.
