From an "online auction". Not going to post a link or the title because I don't want to dignify this nonsense with any hits.Now, I totally understand what is compelling about high end watches to certain people. Yes, they represent different things to different people, but there is definitely a draw there. I own a Rolex, multiple vintage Zeniths, a couple Omegas and an IWC. Yes, these watches raise some real and valid philosophical questions regarding the meaning of money, but they are fun and intriguing. Still, I fully acknowledge that they're an extravagance that I am able to enjoy because I am able to afford it.BUY IT NOW: US $5.00

If someone can't afford to buy a Rolex out of their own disposable income, that means that even if they're lucky enough to have five grand fall into their lap, the money would be better placed elsewhere.
But there is no question that this guy would actually use the money to buy the watch.
