I can't remember the last time I wore any of my rolexes.
Wow, I really couldn't disagree with this more. Let's use a car analogy (what the hell, it's a car forum...): You're only a car guy if you're buying cars in the top 1% of price (e.g. Aston, Lambo, Ferrari etc.)? You aren't a car guy if, for example, you're like my buddy and built up a vintage car from the ground up? That's probably only worth $50k, but he cared enough to do it all himself? Or you own Miatas and race them, or your vintage Mustang is your dream car?

Buddy, you're both watch guys if you care - you simply are willing to spend more money on yours.


2009 E93 M3 - it's, um, pretty fun
