    can't say i agree- do i need to know every nuance of coffee growing to enjoy a really good brand? not necessarily. i don't need to have gone to some gourmet coffee appreciation course to allow the depth/subtlety of the flavours to become apparent to me on a daily basis. i have worn rolexes for years and feel there is a level of quality in build/aesthetics and mechanical engineering there that i value, that weathers well over time. that seems to me worth the money- and is surely the point of all that watchmakers art? i mean in terms of simple accuracy a quartz casio would keep better time.
    you're right that i might get something out of understanding more the actual mechanics of horology but where would you draw that line? people can spend a lifetime actually doing that...
    and re your earlier point about rolex not even being the best of the swiss brands, well sure. i know that! it fits my own criteria of quality, aesthetics, price, value etc...

    Old explorer 1 is definitely a nicer model than the old air king, good choice man, enjoy your watch in good health.
