Rusting bands are quite possibly the silliest reason to spend $5000 on a watch.
Don't you know stainless steel watches can be purchased for $100 ?
Yes, it's the same kind of stainless steel on a $5,000 watch.

I'm talking about the watch case. Not the bands.

"Discuss classic and tailored men's clothing and accessories: fashion, style, do's and don'ts"

(Emphasis mine)

Obviously SW&D covers a broader spectrum, but this particular thread is not in the SW&D section.

Is classic and tailored restricted to 'based on English fashion from around early 20th century"? Couldn't it apply to clothing from China, Russia, Egypt, Cuba, etc. too.

Yes 'classic and tailored', I like blazers, sports jackets and tailored shirts. But not suits and expensive shoes, I have no interest in them. It also has a thread called "WAYWRN: MC Casual Style" ... emphasis is on 'Casual', which I regularly read. Posted a couple of recent 'fits' there a few days ago(including a hoodie), and they seemed to be quite well received.

TBH I thought SW&D was the more specialised sub-forum.... with it's rather busy "***Finally an Official Baller sneaker thread ($300 minimum)***" and similar.

I will take your word for it. Most of us only know what we are familiar with. Myself included.

What is that stringed instrument called?

I don't think there is ever going to be a logical, rational reason why we spend over $5000 on a timepiece. However, I personally appreciate the craftsmanship and complexity of an automatic watch and place value in the time and effort it took to create it.

you're wearing a white crew-neck under a black shirt under a DB blazer, and the suicide is that it's unbuttoned?

For me it's high end suede shoes/boots.

No matter how gently I treat and maintain them they look great for the first week and then suddenly like they've been dug up from a muddy field.

Doesn't stop me buying them obviously shog[1].gif

Rolex uses 904L surgical grade stainless steel.

I don't quite understand the last sentence confused.gif but I think I agree with this post in general.
