Quoted from vid1900:
Why is it absurd???
If Rolex made a limited worldwide run of 100 watches and sold them for $250,000, would that be absurd?
I mean, a $10 watch from the gas station will tell you what time it is, right?
A fine watch says that someone has achieved a degree of success in their life.
A fine watch says that you can comfortably afford to purchase and insure a piece of functional art.
People of limited means can never understand the value of a fine watch.
That's how it's fucking done people. And not even a fleeting mention of cars!
