My wallet is, however, very thankful that I haven't fallen under the spell of cars... Shiyeez.
Good points as always, Dino944, about "the right watches and cars."
When I lived in Boston and DC, I had no use for a car. Public transportation served me well, and left me with fund to buy other things such as watches and nice clothing. When I was away from cars for some time, I still enjoyed seeing rare or nice cars, but I didn't miss owning one.
Now, living outside the big cities I can say, its been a blast driving a fun car with Mrs. Dino, and a pack of car buddies and there wives on beautiful scenic roads, to a destination for lunch or dinner. Its also great to be able to do it wearing a great watch...so one can combine two hobbies.

I saw that AM add a while ago...what a great ad!!!
Frills, Crazy People is one of my wife's favorite movies.... I love the Jag ad in the movie. I also liked the Volvo ad: "Buy Volvos. They're boxy, but they're good." and the movie ad.."Paramount Pictures presents, The Freak. It won't just scare you, it will F@ck you up for life!"

The lighting is bad, but I knew it was RG or WG. The bezel is a dead give away. The embossing is sportier/bolder and uses triangles to mark the numbers rather than dots and hatch marks as found on steel, two tone, or all yellow gold bracelet models.
