We’ve made no secret of the fact that we’re loving the custom watch game right now. Names like MAD Paris have brought new life to the scene, legitimizing the art form. And it really is an art form when it’s done well. We’re not talking in-your-face, buss-down wrist pieces, we’re talking about creative subversions of some of the world’s most lauded accessories.

Take Jacquie Aiche, for example, whose custom Rolexes have been on our radar for some time now. Beautiful, marbled dials and baguette-cut diamond markings distinguish the jeweler's work as some of the best out there.

On level pegging, but with a very different style, is MAD Paris. You’ve probably seen the brand’s work with Audemars Piguet, having collaborated with 1017 ALYX 9SM and Casablanca to dominate IG feeds. Recently, our attention was ripped from the chromed dial of the MAD Paris Royal Oak and fixed firmly on the unofficial Chrome Hearts Explorer II.

The MAD Paris Customized Rolex Lys Explorer II Watch has nothing to do with the cult jewelry brand, but the Fleur de Lis markings that decorate the bracelet are undeniably recognizable. It’s not the first time that Chrome Hearts has been in the vicinity of custom Rolexes, either, with Drake, Lil’ Baby, and Bennifer bringing the brand to the fore earlier this year.

While the embellished case and bracelet definitely steal the show, we’re also loving the contrast with the fixed black bezel and matching black dial. The two black fixtures set the backdrop for a bold orange hand that mirrors the Explorer II text. You can bag this statement timepiece for yourself at SSENSE below, and it’ll only set you back $30225…
