No. I have a $100 (analog) watch that has attracted more interest and compliments than I'd ever anticipated (not that I anticipated anything, because it's just a fucking watch). I've owned two of this exact same watch -- the leather band is of below-average quality, and it broke, so I bought another one. The band on this one is wearing to the point where I'll likely end up buying a third. It's become a signifier in some way. I can't imagine ever wearing another watch, or paying more than the $100 every 2.5 years it's cost to maintain this one. What a racket.
