    Paying $24k for this watch is insane!

    This lady had a lot of $$$ to show off her 911 Porches and the Daytona!
    It all about the status quo!!! Those people in Rolex forum are having fun with their wealth!

    As in, paying 3k for this watch is not insane because....
    It's all comparative.

    Eh, it obviously made her as happy as can be. If spending the $24K on a watch doesn't cause her any pain and that's what she wanted, then more power to her.
    Grand Seiko SBGA375, Rolex 116610LN, and lots of comparatively economical watches that "spoke to me" - mostly Seiko.

    Spending more than the cost of a Casio is something the majority of people on the planet can't imagine or relate to. We are ALL very fortunate on this forum.

    Op, a third of the global population live on less than 2 dollars a day*.

    They might think you completely insane to have spent many hundreds of dollars on your seiko sumo, or crazier still to have multiple watches costing many hundreds of dollars apiece when in reality, a watch is a luxury and not a necessity.

    To you, your watches are affordable extravagance.
    Likewise, to this lady, a rolex is an affordable extravagance.

    It's all relative.

    All watches are frivolous purchases, and we're all pretty lucky to have money to spend on them. Glass houses...

    Yeah, it's all relative. Watches are an extravagance.

    No, no and no!

    It's not "Porches", it's only one Porsche for her. And if you read her Porsche thread (Link) you'll find that it was quite huge to her. And furthermore you would recognise that she is one cool woman that did motorcycle racing and works a lot for the money and has a story for her 911.

    She doesn’t buy Porsches like many here collect Seikos and there's no need to bring up stereotypes about "those people in Rolex forum ... with their wealth!"! Btw, I had some deeper looks into the Rolex boards and I found the folks on rolexforums.com and the whole atmosphere there strikingly kind and warmhearted.

    Cheers!

    I love mine, worth every penny. I love my Seiko's too. They keep my Daytona safe from harm.
