Nice post, Apropos. That's exactly how I felt when I tried one for the first time, last week. It's kind of wrong. Definitely douche-associated. But like a lime green Shelby Mustang, as stupid as it is...the seven year old boy in all of us also thinks it's kind of awesome.
And let's face it, douches wear Rolex quite a lot too. Or Omega. Or whatever. And do we care? Do we fuck.
(RNG - you could be right...I've been thinking about it more than once...dropped by again the other night just to see one more time....ah shit...)
Very well written post. And I learned at least one thing, given my own predilections: you just taught me never to try a PAM on.
Otherwise, it might grab me by the neck and basically hold me at gunpoint... just like Jason Statham is doing with this guy...
Interestingly, I know someone who outgrew Panerai. He used to have thirty-two Panerai watches, but said he'd grow listless wearing one of them that he'd switch out twice or thrice a day. Sold them all off and now has two Pateks and two Langes as part of his weekly rotation. He says "less is more." Acquisition and disposition schedule probably helped along by the fact that he buys and sells watches for a living.
Who knows, perhaps he will outgrow his current stable too. All part of personal evolution, I suppose.
