i agree but if its a rolex or something everyone knows. Patek, i'm guessing is something less in you face obviously flashy, vulgar, expensive.

Patek is definitely not less expensive than a Rolex, unless your talking WG Daytonas or stuff with aftermarket bling. While definitely more common, there are some gems in the rolex lineup most people don't recognize. When I got into collecting I had the same notion, namely that Rolexes were reserved for 19yo stockbrokers wanting to show off, but having owned a few my feelings have changed. Rolex (compared to other currently popular brands, i.e. Panerai, Omega, etc.) makes a very solid watch that will hold time for years past when it should be serviced, despite all the water/dirt/hot/cold you can throw at it.

I love it - my fear is by the time I have enough pennies saved to buy it, they will discontinue it...

It's been said that Omega compared to Rolex is, twice the watch, half the price...

I own and love, one of each though...

Nice Invicta Jim. I have the one that looks like a Daytona, and it is unbelievable for the price. I wear it quite frequently, and enjoy it.

Right on... For some reason I just can't get away from the rubber bands... Maybe I just don't like the weight of the metal ones or something...
