    In our world of vintage watches it's not so much about the value for most of us. I do prefer the stainless steel ones though so I might be a little posh.

    I know what you mean Shum, I don't care about the value of the watch either, I just thought it was interesting and fun

    Interesting piece to listen to. I liked how they mentioned that different people have different reasons for wearing valuable watches. Not everyone wears a costly watch to impress someone. Many of the watches I admire most, few outside of these forums would have ever heard of... Qualities can be appreciated by the wearer, which is sometimes a point that is missed.
