You haven't lived until you've judged and been judged based on the time piece you wear on your wrist.

Haha, I was pretty shocked to see what people spend on watches as well. I thought wearing my $50 Fossil was living the high life... !+)

Me too. But it's an iPhone so I guess that doesn't fall under the $650 limit. Don't think I wanna live in that world where the kind of watch you wear matters to people. I'd go crazy pretty quick I think. Or just get brainwashed and roll with it. One of those two.

That's alright, my dad's the same way (identically, in fact). He's 60. :-)

Judge or be judged; that's my motto.

Let's see Paul Allen's card.
Look at that subtle off-white coloring.
The tasteful thickness of it.
Oh, my God. It even has a watermark.

What a great movie...

Don't listen to these non-watch snobs, when you're out looking for that job that pays $100k+, in your 2nd/3rd interview, they'll ask to run your credit, see your last 3 yrs W2's, and take a peek at your watch. ;-D


edit: And yes, it will be someone like me doing your interview.
