Nope.  I don't waste my money on high end crap.  It's ridiculous to spend five and six figures for something whose central function can be reliably replicated for fifty bucks.

But TQ, the central function of a Rolex, for those who buy them, is ostentation and conspicuous consumption.

IOW, to make a target out of one's self. Thanks, but no thanks. :-)

Commendable.  Very commendable.  :-)

No.

I never have, and I never will.

Instead of thinking of myself owning one, I surprised my brother for Christmas several years ago by purchasing him a Rolex watch.

I always knew you were a closet 1-percenter, MC.  :D

Transquesta MidnightCowboy

From a street vendor, right? :-)

TheOtherTink MidnightCowboy

Hey, TQ, $500 for a $5,000 watch isn't bad... you shouldn't knock street vendors like that.

And no sales tax either.  :)

@Transquesta:

I would never buy a Rolex from any street vendor.  I went to Jared Jewelers and knew I was getting the real thing for my brother.

No I don´t. They look really nice though.

So does a Timex. :-)
