Nice is indeed a beautiful city, as is the whole coastline in the South of France.
I am not French myself and only live there since 5 years now.
But if I am honest, I prefer the US for living.
Ralph Lauren and Richemont. That surprised me too. The RL watch line is pretty cool.
I think they are made by Piaget, but not sure.
That big Rotonde de Cartier watch, was if I remember well around 27000.- euro when it was released in 2006.
So not as bad as you...
