    a) nice watch
    b) that's a fake; you got ripped off
    c) that's a fake; why are you trying to pass it off as a rolex?
    d) just keep quiet.
    thanks

    (a)"nice watch" - as long as he's not shooting a fake K-80.

    The same thing I'd say to someone ostentatiously wearing a real Rolex - absolutely nothing - real or fake - still vulgar "hey, look at me". Leave them to their need for attention.

    I don't even know what a real Rolex looks like nor do I care.

    He's probably shooting a Spanish Ljutic.

    Wearing any kind of watch is a proclamation that you are on a leash.

    Momma always said... "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all..."

    I wear what I want, for me... I could care less what anyone else thinks. Give me a nice watch I can wear for a lifetime vs. something I'd have to replace many times over and I can readily appreciate its value and not focus on its cost...

    Can't we make the same argument for a fine firearm?!

    regards all,

    Jay

    I would say, glad to see you were smart enough to buy one for $30, not $30,000.

    To a conservative a Rolex says "this guy is successful and has it made".

    To a liberal a Rolex says "this guy has money to burn, let's raise his taxes".

    I bought a fake Rolex Submariner years ago when I lived in Bangkok.

    I bought it because I liked how it looked. I made no secret about the fact that it was a fake. No way I would spend the money required to buy a real one.

    It kept pretty good time for about 5 years.

    Then Timex made a watch that looked just like it, so I bought one.

    Now I find that style of watch just too heavy, so I wear a cheap Wally-World plastic digital watch that cost me $9 an it keeps perfect time and is light on my wrist.
