Unfortunately it's not. This is from a post on Reddit r/watches and I was absolutely captivated by the watch. If to be believed, the owner appears to be a self-made real-estate millionaire at 26 per his YouTube account.

I don't wanna sound like a drooling fan boy but wow - that photo is mesmerizing. I mean, the shape that thing is in...stunning.
Since many people weren't in lockstep with his beloved cheese box shit watch brand, The Cruise King ran off blowing snot bubbles, far away from his once-beloved forum. Here, eat this mudpie, Paw Paw. It tastes like a Hershey bar. Go ahead, dig in.
