My $99.00 Tommy Heileifger is perfectly acceptable and looks for expensive than it is

I could own a nice Rolex or other high end watch, I choose not to. I have a couple of everyday watches that cost no more than $100.00 each and they serve me well. Nowadays I wear a Fitbit all day so I rarely wear a watch now except for,church on Sundayís. The nicest watch I own is. Citizens Eco Drive watch that cost less than $400.00. Itís a great watch but way more than I need.

Now, if you wanna talk about expensive neckties, Iím all in!

I stopped wearing a watch years ago after I started carrying a cell phone. If I want to know what time it is, I look at my iPhone. I don't see much point to wearing a traditional watch and none for a Rolex at all. If I felt the need for a watch, I'd get an Apple Watch because it actually has useful functions and works with the iPhone.

I think people who walk around wearing a Rolex are fools and become targets for robberies. When I see a Rolex on someone, I'm not impressed, it just reminds me how shallow and superficial they are.

Rolex's and other expensive watches all use in house mechanical movements that do a terrible job of telling the time vs quartz and require ridiculously expensive servicing every 5 years or so. You could buy 10+ much more accurate less fragile watches that require nothing more than a $3 battery every 10 years for the cost of a single Rolex service. Telling the time has really nothing to do with why people buy them, they are jewelry for men that happen to serve a function, however badly they serve it.

You should be a watch salesman.

No Rolex for me, just a simple CASIO watch or CASIO Fishing watches like these here.

I agree. Give me a functional device like a smartwatch or a fitbit something designed to do more than demonstrating to others that you have enough money to buy a very overpriced timepiece.

How does that work?
