I own a $7,000 Blancpain Aqua Lung, and here is a shot of my diploma. My BP is one of only 1999 made in a special limited edition with a handmade Frederic Piguet 1151 movement, so I know quality watches. As far as my "weak salary" goes, let's just say that I'm a pretty successful M.D. from a well-to-do landowning family and have never had a problem buying anything I've wanted, and I'll leave it at that. I stand by my opinion of Rolex watches, formed after owning numerous examples of them (before I knew anything about watches). There are only four reasons for owning a Rolex. One, you are a chronic flipper (Rolex does have the highest resale value across all brands). Two, you actually like the styling (my favorite Rolex is the Explorer II 1655, but I've also owned a no-date Submariner and Datejust as well). Three, you want people to notice that you wear an expensive watch. Or four, you don't know anything about watches (ask the average plebe on the street what they think the "best" watch is and 99.9% of them will say Rolex). I find Rolex bracelets to be particularly appalling, and the shittiness of their fliplock clasps has to be seen to be believed.
