I don't normally tell normal people (i,e,, non-WISs) what I pay for my watches. However, when I had my Exploder serviced last year, I drove the watch down to Portland and drove there again to pick it up (mainly because the cost of gas was less than shipping the bastard) and told people I worked with about it. Naturally, they asked the price of the service, which was around $450.
They were literally astounded by that figure, even though it was far less than Rolex would have charged.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.
