Does who owns which watch model really matter to you?

Post by docrwm on Wed 05 Jan 2011, 9:32 am

Seriously?

I loathe the Rolex and other "high-end" watches that use idiots like Clooney to hawk their watches. Makes me want one LESS because a) most of those folks are idiots that know nearly nothing about watches, and b) they are funding that million(s) $ contract on my back.

Am I alone in these perceptions?

It doesn't bother me that much. A celebrity endorsement has not influenced me in a single watch purchase, or any other type of purchase. Endorsements have been a marketing tool for a hundred years.

True. Still hate them and they genuinely make me think about the $s. Rolex says that their celebrity endorsement process "only adds about $50 per watch". Only.

Cool, bet it glows in the dark and doesn't take pressure well.

Celebrities have been endorsing products for year and it's never affected if I do or don't buy something. Of course if Stallone endorsed it I'd be all over it like flies on shit because he can make or break a product! That said, I buy what I like, don't pay too much and enjoy the hell out of it.

Good man! Stallone is, of course, different.

Hey, I said the same thing, (except the Stabone stuff), and you didn't call me a good man, Robert. I'm needy, and I will not be ignored. But I love this site. Don't shut it down.

IF he were to wear one, which he doesn't which wouldn't make it special.
