Car who don't need gas, tires, oil, park place or driver = subway
Isn't that a  contradiction in terms? Jon.
Not at all. I picked up my car 4 years ago when i was young and naive. Now i am fed up with cars. I have never liked driving more than 30 minutes in a row. Add to this the nonestop car jams in Paris and the price of gas (around 1.1 euros per liter). And i must make a technical control, to be allowed to drive (every 2 years), which i didn't make. So i don't use my car for all these reasons.

Guys... I think that ol' ernest has gotten the laugh on this one.
Well, it could be an old 914 or 924 for all we know...
Those are Audis with porsche badges.
Depends on what 924. 924 S have a 100% Porsche engine. My first car was a 924, 10 years ago, I even went to the college with it a couple of time... So you can understand that i am fed up with cars now. I have no money to waste in cars anyway.

Um, if you can afford a Rolex, it shouldn't really affect you financially that you just bought a Seiko. I love that an unemployed person in France can even think about buying a Rolex. Truly, France is a decaying society that is going to go broke unless it stops being a "welfare" state.
Indeed but before buying my Seiko, I hated Rolex and sport watches. I found them tacky and not elegant. Now, i got used to wearing my Seiko and so I start to like Rolex (for casual wear). Seiko was a sort of test. That's why i told i shouldn't had bought a Seiko. Rolex is not an expensive brand so it is perfect for unemployed people.

What would it take for an American to go and mooch off of this system for a while?

Depends on the night. Sometimes he dreams it black and sometimes red. But it always goes real real fast.

A few years ago I found myself looking for a nice automatic watch. I was torn, I looked at Rolex, Omega, Oris, Tag, and some other middle to higher end watches. The Rolex was just that, a Rolex, everyone wears them so others can tell what they have on..Tag is getting like that a bit. I ended up buying a soon to be discontinued Omega Seamaster 120 and I could not be happier...it is a great watch, runs well for an automatic (a few minutes slow within a couple of weeks, nothing out of the normal), it looks great, does not draw attention..the only people that know what I am wearing are me and folks who know watches...it is understated, the way I like to wear things.

Most of people wouldn't make the difference between a Rolex, an Omega or any large watch. Most of people don't even look at your wrist. Omega are good value for money but I hate the Seamaster. The color of the hands is awful (green), i don't like the shape of the bezel nor the shape of the bracelet. In fact, i don't like anything on this watch. I already have an dressed Omega anyway and so even if i liked the Seamaster, I would prefer a new brand in my collection. Oris is too huge and is worthless on the second hand market. I want a very nice sportwatch. Not just a watch to have a watch. Tag is tacky, oversized and overpriced and worn most of time by people who don't care about watches . I don't want a watch that don't draw intention, i already have 6 watches like that. I want a NICE casual watch which will keep its value if one day I want to sell it and which will be noticed as a good watch buy people who like watches. I guess someone who likes watch must sooner or later buy a Rolex (not as the best watch of his life but just as an upscale sportwatch). Having a Rolex will avoid me having to support stupid people showing off with their Rolex while I "only" wear a Patek or a JL. I could say : "Rolex is not too bad, practical for scuba diving or when I put out the garbage..." They couldn't say I am jealous because they succeded in life as they have a Rolex . And I could always show off with stupid people and impress stupid salesmen in shops (knowing Rolex is far away to be the best brand of course.)

No, just for intelligent people who don't need to work to have self confidence and to feel less bored in their lifes. This is for people who just need money .
