I do not agree that they are "watches to go out in nightclubs". This remains toolwatches, DNA is present and they can be used in this sense, robust, reliable, despite the years the addition of precious materials.

If they are today used as a social marker or showoff by some it is not because they no longer present their characteristics.
Moreover, these people who think impress with their pro steel Rolex are wrong, it remains relatively little money !

Then for my part I'm part of the middle class, comfortable but not outrageously wealthy, and I think that is the case for many.
I do not believe that they sell only to very rich people, the volumes testify that it affects all segments of the population

By then we'll be collecting cassette tapes.

Haha! The voice of reason, except it won’t be cassette tapes - more likely public pay phones.
