I don't care one way or another. If a man I was dating had one, my bigger concern would be whether he could *actually* afford it or was he the type of person who was overly enamoured with appearing wealthy regardless of his real circumstance. I'd be more likely to be impressed with a well planned retirement account or investment portfolio, than a Rolex or a Corvette. But that's me.

Some people never quite grasp this concept.
Of course I do and I am that way. I also know many people who really do care what others think of their "things". Now that I don't understand.

Like you said buy it because you like it.

Notice isn't necessarily the point. I'm not a big label hound, but there are a few brands I will seek out, simply because they last for years and years. I've had a couple of leather Aigner (not a terribly impressive brand, I know, but my fave, for purses) bags that only grew prettier with time. The thing that is hard for me to understand is spending a fortune on bags made of some kind of cloth, with the logo all over them. How does one keep them from getting dirty and frayed?

I bought hubby a used Rolex, many years ago. It was still $3400. back then. He likes it and wears it for special occasions. When he wears it he feels like he’s dressing up.
On a cruise, he bought me a Concord Saratoga with diamonds. That was in 1995. I still wear it every day, and it looks like new.
A quality watch is expensive because it will last. Sure, you can get cheap watches that tell time, and there is nothing wrong with that. When I wear my Concord, it comes with the memories of the cruise we took with friends, when we were younger, and the fact that I’ve worn it almost every day of my life, through good and bad times, ever since then.

Some people value some things over others. So be it. I don’t think either of us every gives a thought to whether anyone notices what kind of watch we’re wearing.

I beg your pardon?

I can't remember the last time I wore a watch, but when I did, I preferred cute, unique watches. I didn't care at all about Rolex, or any brand, and I don't care for the one pictured in the OP.

Like some others have mentioned, if someone were to try to impress me with their expensive brands, it would be a waste of their money because I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. lol

Not a fan of Rolex.

I wear cheap, funky watches when i DO wear one, but i usually don't because "jewelry" irritates me anymore. I like the look of the wooden ones but don't have any yet.

If i were wealthy, i'd probably chose something like this (didnt' see the cost yet), because it's pretty and i'd be able to afford it lol.

I had a Timex faux-lex. The difference between the Rolex you show and mine was the face on mine was champagne colored. It was a classic timeless watch. I wore the heck out of it for over 25 years.

It died. And the dial was becoming harder for me to read. Aging eyes.

I did an amazing amount of research. Bought a Seiko. Solar. Blue face, silver hands. Very visible to me. Love the blue face.

But hereís the thing. A lot of people donít need to wear watches anymore. So watches have become statement jewelry. Statement jewelry is always big. Iím not a small person, but I have small features. I donít like the look of statement jewelry on me.

Itís hard to find small case watches. But Iím happy with my watch. And I donít wear it much. But when I travel I want a watch.

I find most of them to be too masculine for me. I like them okay on men. I like prettier watches.
