My opinion is that snobs are those that prefer the extreme ends of the curve. It's either "only the best will do" or "I am proud to be cheap". And they wear that attitude like a badge of honor. And try to shove it in your face. And belittle your opinion on the matter as being boneheaded.

Agreed 100%. My collection ranges from lowly Audemar Piguet Stainless steel up to Fancy Smancy Solid rose gold Day Date and everything in between. No snob here!

When I’m feeling snobbish, I wear a submariner, Speedmaster or a vintage Longines. Ninety percent of the rest of the time I wear one of several Orients, Citizens or a favorite Invicta diver that I like. Fail to understand the ill feeling toward Invicta. I have two with automatic movements and they are accurate, well made and comfortable. I know, QVC watches, cruise ship junk, etc. . I have seen the big displays of garrish yellow box Invictas on cruise ships and they are a turnoff.

The contempt for invicta is related to the lies told by the owners and his minions on shitHQ as well as the previous shills who are all gone now. Many members here own invicta and other watches sold on shopping channels.

I have come to my love of watches only later in life, which gives the advantages of fewer money worries and patience -- together with a certain pickiness.

So, my cheapest watch is my Stowa Flieger Klassik.

Daily wearers are mostly GOs, Moser and Dornblüth.

Call me whatever you like.

"Snobs and haters" was Geek-speak for: "How dare that guy tell me about the MSRP scam, the mineral crystals called 'Flame Fusion,' the diamonds that were crystals, the bands that fall apart while in the watch box, the Swiss movements swaps, the watches they never will fix, the lies upon lies about Russians Divers and D/D modules, or how Invicta products were listed as 'counterfeit' by the Swiss Federation - we only listen to cigar store grifters and rum dums on a fourth-place home shopping network."

Let 'em eat Lupahs.
Best of luck to all my longtime friends here. Please stay safe, always.
