We all know that there are many watches out there that only the very rich can afford like a Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon Chronograph or a Roger Dubuis Excalibur which both cost half a million each. I find such luxury excessive. I can understand buying an IWC or a Glashutte or a Hublot for $20k. Maybe a Ulysse Nardin or a Breitling for $40k is still acceptable. But to spend 6 digits on a watch just doesn't make sense even if u are filthy rich.
If we compare it against the cheapest decent watch say a $20 Casio with a $200k luxury watch, we see that the price difference is 10,000 times. How many products are there that have such a price difference? Take cars for eg..if we set the price of a reasonably cheap car at $15k, at the other end of the spectrum,following watch pricing i.e. x10000,we'll have a $150m car. Now..how many cars are priced like that? Even if there is,it's probably a one of a kind or a prototype made just to showcase the technological prowess of the car company. But there are quite a number of watches that are priced that way or even higher e.g. there are 33 pieces of G-P Tourbillon Chrono priced at $530k. Besides that,many other watch brands have watches costing around half a mil.
If we apply the same luxury stretch on laptops,we'll find them costing as much as $500x10000=$5m. A laptop for $5m? Ya..maybe if it's studded with diamonds all round.
That's why i think that buying a watch costing 6-digit is excessive. After all,it can only do so much. Unlike buying land where more $ gets u more land. A half mil watch will still occupy the same space on one's wrist n it can only hold so many parts in the casing.
