I honestly don't believe anyone buys a Rolex because they realy believe it looks good (except perhaps the kind of people who think a huge multicolour Jacobs & Co watch looks good too) it's all about bragging rights.

I think there's no point having a big name watch if you're not going to brag about it. "I've got a 50 grand Rolex but nobody knows" … WASTE! It says you're one of them nice guys Mary Poppins wouldn't even fuck, lower than Dick Van Dyke.

and i totally didn't used to like rolxes, but now some of them look fucking awesome where a year or two ago i couldn't see what the fuck there was nice about them.

even as i say this, two months ago if i had the feelings towards rolex as i do today, i'd have bought one over the breitling.


i honestly couldn't care about bragging rights, i'd be more inclined to wear it saying it was fake so fuckers wouldn't steal it.

its not like they are going to jump on your dick because you are wearing a rolex (despite what you may think MR X)
