The stupid expensive watch thread

This might be the most preposterously overpriced time piece ever.

and it's only $9.95 for shipping and handling! You would think they would include S+H but with such an extreme mark-down they can't afford it.

Some people have way too much money.

Who in their right mind that has $87K to spend on a watch would but it off of the internet just to save a measly $58K? Who would risk it? I would think that someone with this kind of cash to throw around buys only from a jeweler that they have trusted for a long time.

LOL, I missed that! It has to be some kind of scam. Who would send such an expensive watch for only $9.95. You would think it would require some kind of secure delivery service rather than ordinary Fedex or UPS (not saying these companies do not offer that service but they are going to charge more than $9.95 for it).

I like the fact that people who viewed the watch also viewed a $114.00 Kindle.

A $3,000 watch is 'expensive'. An $80,000 watch is a defense dept. procurement.

That one is just under three million.

Personally, I like this one (and I wear it daily):

What type of band do you recommend for securing a Porsche to one's wrist?

Do you have any idea how many watches, or Yoo-Hoo, or ice cream jsharr's poor Texican boys could get with that money?

... a lot, I guess.

Even that is overpriced. What was the last 660 ft dive you went on? LOL

I can't believe nobody's mentioned the 170+ "reviews" that are all just parodies. From it saving the universe to making a better pimp, most are hysterical. This sort of humor is almost worth the price of the watch. Almost. OK, not even close.
