    You sound to be a veritable expert in time pieces.

    I trust you can enlighten the uninitiated like me.

    These timepieces are beyond luxury with some of them priced at nearly 1M USD. Such pieces are offered to celebrities or royalty that has more than enough to splurge on such fine things in life.

    For the usual guys like most of us, even a 10K-20k USD Rolex is just too much. We are just glad to be sporting affordable Swiss or very good Japanese automatics.

    The price will go down if more is sold on the market. If they keep the supply low and the demand is very high, prices will surely shoot up.

    Still it doesnít answer my question why these timepieces are outrageously expensive.

    For example, the RM is relatively new to the market. And I think Richard Mille still alive. But most elite athletes, from tennis to Formula 1, wear them.

    I think people buying them are not actually buying the watches. They are buying a name, a lifestyle to upstage one another.

    But the really wealthy(Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Roman Abramovich) are wearing cheap watches. In the case of Gates, a Casio; Branson, a Toegoen; Abramovich, Polar M61.

    ALS and some of the super luxury make handmade complications in-house and not the usual remakes of ETA movements. Most of them are made out of gold and riddled with gems.

    I donít aim for such timepieces as they are way out of my league. I will be happy soon sporting a Breitling, Zenith, or IWC.

    at them prices, telling the time is not their raison de etre.
    they are designed and marketed for their bragging rights.

    a cheap casio will tell time more accurately than a rolex that sells for a hundred times more.

    i like quartz.
    unlike rolex, hindi namamatay kapag hindi ginagamit.

    me, too.
    also,
    the fung shui expert advises that we should always have some gold (real or faux; go figure.) touching our skin, to ward off whatever it is supposed to ward.
    and my watch with some "gold" on it, is just the thing.
    heh heh.

    Isnít your wedding ring supposed to do that? Ward off whatever itís supposed to ward off? I think it is more effective than any solid gold watch.

    Yes bro, when you're wearing it on your ring finger, which supposedly is connected to your heart, it ties down your heart....

What brand of watch do you wear? [Merged]
