I have often read with amusement posts on this board about $500 custom-made shirts, $700 designer sunglasses, and $1000 bespoke shoes. Â I have never paid over $100 for a shirt or over $250 for a pair of shoes, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Â I drive a 13-year-old clunker that is on life support and live in an apartment the size of a large walk-in closet. Â But alas, I am not immune to the temptations of conspicuous consumption . . . for I am a Watch Guy. Â I fully realize that it is not rational to pay more than a couple hundred dollars for a watch and that the most expensive and complex mechanical watch in the world cannot keep as good time as a quartz Timex that you can buy in the drugstore. Â Yet there is something magically indescribable about a fine mechanical watch -- the perfect marriage of art and engineering that at the same time expresses the wearer's personality -- that led me to spend several thousand dollars on a watch several months ago and again this past week. Â All I know is that when I look down on my wrist and see the second hand sweeping around the dial, a smile comes to my face. So let me hear it. Â Are you a Watch Guy, a Shirt Guy, a Shoe Guy, or something else? Â Or have you managed to resist temptation successfully and spend you hard-earned cash on something practical?
