Money that exchanges hands eventually feeds poor children (in the way of income and sales taxes, of which about 40% goes towards poor families in the way of welfare programs).
Ummm, your number here is a bit high (unless you're including social security payouts).

(drizzt3117 @ 18 Nov. 2004, 09:05) I have some of them in my safe deposit box. Submariner, stainless steel bracelet, blue dial.
There is no Sub SS with bleu dial but gold/ss
Right, I assumed you know what I meant when I said SS bracelet as the other bracelet is gold. You prefer the solid gold Submariner?

Wearing a good quality diving watch with a suit is perfectly acceptable for a gentleman who goes SCUBA diving. However this combination is not appropriate if the only underwater action you get is when your mum gives you a sponge bath.

I think a diving watch is acceptable with evening clothing only if one is wearing a tuxedo under his dry diving suit and needs to check the timing of his bomb while looking suave at the bar next door. Otherwise, not so much.

You never know when you are going to have to dive in wet suit to secure a giant diamond... did any of you guys see after the sunset btw?

A sports watch, while not preferable, is perfectly fine with a suit so long as it fits under a normal dress shirt cuff.  (A Rolex Submariner does not qualify.)  I am wearing such a sports watch right now (Blancpain Aqua Lung).

The watches that I primarily wear (and have here at my place in CA) are the Breitlings, Bvlgari, Omega, Sea Dweller, and F1, I have some of my other watches stored as I don't like having $70k in watches sitting around here.
Unless I am grossly underestimating the cost of the Daytona and the Royal Oak offshore, I don't see how your ten watches add up to $70K, even at retail.

I was going to see it until it got universally panned.  I actually prefer Brosnan when he plays a James-Bond like villian (Tailor of Panama, Thomas Crown Affair) to his role as Bond.

Of course, wearing a dive watch with a wet "suit" is not what you were asking about when you started this post, drizzt. Just saw "After the Sunset" yesterday on a cold, rainy Ohio afternoon. Thought it was an OK movie, but the scenery made it a great movie for the coming winter blahs. My wife's comment was "can we go to Atlantis?" BTW, also thought the movie was a great 90-minute ad for Tommy Bahama. (Even if Brosnan wasn't wearing Tommy, that was sure the feel of his wardrobe and his house/furniture.)

Wow, page 3 of a watch thread, and no flames yet . . .

AC, you are right, I was a bit high with my estimate, total retail is about $60k (FWIW retail on the Offshore is $16.6k and the Daytona is $12.8k)

I guess you are also high when you think you must need a sport watch because of your body and wrist...

That's pretty clever ernest, I like that. I guess you have lots of time to come up with snappy comebacks, being unemployed and all.

What is the link with my job situation and the subject? I do not follow you... What is clever?
