This.

It really depends on the condition of it and if it's an automatic movement, etc.

I've been wearing my rep while the real one is saved for worthy occasions and I would give this one away whenever I'm done with it. It's in good shape, but I only paid 100 dollars for it (automatic movement, working chronograph). It's been my daily watch for the last 5 years so I wouldn't feel good charging someone any kind of money for it if I let it go some time soon (my initial plan is to keep it until the hands stop moving permanently).

I just read in the fake watches thread that Pakistan is a good spot. Shoot us some tourism pics from North Waziristan.

So you can do what exactly? Fool people into thinking you've got a real one? What else would be the purpose? Saving your huge collection of real ones for the important occasions in life like swanky parties or visits to the art gallery? I don't get this mentality at all. Sounds ego driven.

Replacement costs suck.

My last Rolex service was 1200 dollars because I needed a new crown and cyclops and new hands.

Right but how often is that? Maybe every 10 years at most.

Replacement costs will suck on your M3 too so will that prompt you to go m-badge out a 325? To me this statement highlights the importance of living within your means. If you can't afford maintenance or replacement costs then I'd say you're in the wrong price bracket for watches.

Between both services in 14 years, the Datejust cost me roughly 2400 including the certified, insured shipping back and forth to San Francisco.

The Daytona I could a few years ago is still running smooth so I'm sure it won't need service for a few more years.

Driving and maintaining a car is in a different league than a watch, bro.

It's not that I can't afford it, but nice assumptions. Here lemme try, you're bitter because you can't afford one to begin with?

Why you so mad, bro? You work for Rolex or something?

Are you pretty hard on your watches? I have quite a number so only wear my sea dweller couple times a month but can't see it needing service unless the lube dries out.

I pick up inventory for my business the next town over. I'm moving multiple boxes at a time each trip at a frequency of 3-4 times a week. Then I also work on the various things my building needs.

Call me cheap, but it saves my business tons of money to do this kind of stuff myself. So I would much rather beat on my 100 dollar watch.

If things get too rugged I do pull my watch off and dump it in the truck.

Maybe i should get in the habit of that, though. hmmmmm

Call me cheap, but it saves my business tons of money to do this kind of stuff myself. So I would much rather beat on my 100 dollar watch and now that I know it makes Darth Federer so mad, I'm gonna keep on doing it. Maybe I'll wear two watches just to really make him angy.
Let me emphasize again, I'm not mad at you.....bro. Your posts just happen to be on these thread pages I'm reading and I think it's a good example of my point. If your doing all this work that's hard on your watches then why are you not wearing a g-shock or something? Is the purpose of your watch to tell you the time or to convey your status to others? The only reason I can think of is you need to be seen in a Rolex. To me that's a slippery slope of ego and keeping up with the joneses. It's probably no question the g-shock will be more durable for what you're doing and it will last longer than your fake Rolex that you have to reset 2-3 times a week. And to your point of what I can afford, I do own an M3 but the Rolex was just way beyond my means.

I responded in the other thread about this one. Again, I apologize for my condescending tone.

The assumptions were just a jab at your earlier assumptions. And no, I could honestly care less about what anyone sees me in. I park my M in between my buildings (store and laundromat) and it's behind a wall. When I go to the next town and stock up on store inventory, I either drive my 98 avalon or my toyota tundra.

You're right, a G shock would definitely suffice. I really don't have an excuse other than I've just been in the habit of slipping it on 6 days a week for work (married to my business, I guess).

Again, no offense intended, i just got a little defensive and lashed out.

ROFL no. My dad got denied for that 10 years ago, actually.

There's my store that has a laundromat attached along with a check cashing side business and my parents have their own check cashing and a gas station.

Cool man. Likewise. No offense intended in my posts and I didn't mean for it to come off as a personal attack.
