again, they're not for everyone... what seems tacky to one may be a work of art to another. personally i don't think Bose or B&O make quality audio products but i have to admit they certainly look good. if it fits one's lifestyle and the person in question enjoys the product, the more power to them... i'm not in a position to judge anyone because these products doesn't have great internals.
i'm sorry if i came across that all traditional watches look gaudy; on the contrary there are a lot that look modern and appealing... like i said before i would love a Oris, Panerai, or a Tag Heuer one of these days. but not a lot of people can afford a "real watch from a real watchmaker." yes, it's something to stive for but at the moment designer watches tells time (really... even cheap quartz movement these days can be very accurate) like any other real watch from a real watchmaker, and does it's job well. there's nothing wrong with buying a watch from a designer company.
yes, Oakley watches are more design oriented than being precision watchmakers, so i will have to agree that they are overpriced when factoring their internals. but like i said before, you're also paying for a design that appeals to an individual, and sometimes you can't put a price on something that is personally appealing. very rarely have i paid full price on my Oakley watches, if i had to i probably wouldn't have so many.

that said, i like both designs but they are very different watches. the Timebomb looks smooth and sleek, while the Judge is very over the top. it depends on what you like... i'll have to favour the Timebomb at the moment though; they're discontinued and are getting increasingly harder to get. however, they seem to have great prices on Ebay lately, hovering around 4-500 for a $1500 watch. i believe Overstock.com still has a few in stock.
