People concerned about getting from point A to B would obviously suggest an Accord and laugh at the foolishness of paying for a BMW. BMW buyers suffer from the same love of fine engineering as watch nuts do. As I share a love of both passions I think I understand the OP. To answer him, however, is harder. It's a personal thing, like should I pick AW over SSII. I get tired of people asking the masses what they should like.
Do you really expect me to go research watches before my friend Badfish asked me to "GUESS" how much? I never said I was a watch connoisseur as you obviously are making yourself out to be.

Watches are different than cars. It's more of a luxury item than a car. My "trite" comment about cell phones being more accurate in keeping time? I merely mentioned the simple fact that I own a decent watch, but never wear it. Thus it stops keeping time due to being an automatic watch.

"I get tired of people asking the masses what they should like." .. You're too cool..
