[Edit: I said "hundreds". Then I did a Froogle search and found that the average price is well over $3000, which makes even Tag Heuer look cheap. Obscene.]
Hmm, clearly I don't undertand the concepts of style and fashion. The market must be there, or else there wouldn't be a constant supply of billboard and magazine ads for high-priced watches. I'll admit that I liked my watch when it was working. But it wasn't so important to me that I went and replaced the band and battery. After all, I have clocks on my phone, PDA and iPod - who needs more?
Evidently, some people need much more. How vain, insecure, or both must they be?
