Agreed. When I see or meet someone for the 1st time, the starting point is to respect them as a polite, cool, nice person. Where it goes from there is up to them.I would put it this way. Not everyone who wears a Rolex does so to show off and impress others, but of those who do wear a watch to show off and impress others, Rolex is the bright burningflame to that particular group of moths. Personally, when I meet someone in a Rolex, I like to think they're the better group unless they prove otherwise.
People who want to show off and impress others. Do they want to show off their good visual taste and sense of style or do they want to show off they can afford to own an expensive watch ?
