Lil' Kim Serves Time with Wristwatch Line

Lil' Kim is about to have time on her hands – and everybody else's, if she can work it.

The hip-hop artist known for her bling-bling is launching her own wristwatch line, to be manufactured by celebrity jeweler Jacob Arabo and called Royalty – and carrying a price that only royalty can bear, from $1,800 to $3,500.

Still, as Kim (real name: Kimberly Jones), 30, says in a statement: "I wanted to create a quality, unique product that fashionable women everywhere can afford."

She adds: "I love fashion and wanted to create a designer watch collection that would translate my personal style into a product which would appeal to stylish women everywhere."

Tyra Banks and Ashlee Simpson are already sporting Kim's watches, with feature diamond bezels weighing from 1.75 to 2.25 carats and interchangeable leather wristbands.

Speaking of time, Kim's federal perjury and obstruction-of-justice case has been postponed, with her Nov. 15 court date now pushed back to Feb. 28, 2005, so defense attorneys could better prepare.

Kim has been charged with lying to investigators looking into a Feb. 25, 2001, shootout outside a Manhattan radio station.
