    Um, if you can afford a Rolex, it shouldn't really affect you financially that you just bought a Seiko.

    I love that an unemployed person in France can even think about buying a Rolex. Truly, France is a decaying society that is going to go broke unless it stops being a "welfare" state.

    Why would he keep them? It's not like he needs 'workhorse' suits or anything. He just needs a few nice ones for job interviews, formal events/parties etc.

    Its becoming very clear to me why the etymology for the word dÃ[​IMG]·jà vu is French. Interesting Factoid. Although ernest has only 2100+ posts (at this time) he is indirectly responsible for about 40% of the 121638 posts to date. [​IMG]

    It's almost like Ernest enjoys the abus ehe subjects himself to

    Don't buy a Rolex. Spend your money on a better watch.

    I hope it is a vintage Rolex.

    In that it is over 50 years old.

    Rolex is Sooo over rated. Movement is not even that exquiste(spell). For that type of money, I'll buy a nice Attolini or Kiton suit and get a nice mid price ranged machanical watch.

    I agree. I was going to buy a Rolex a couple of months back came to my senses and bought an IWC 3706 instead. Glad I didn't buy the Rolex.
