    This seems very hard to believe to me. I wonder if this is propaganda or hard truth. who is BuYing these watches now, these SWiss watches? i mean there are rich people, yah i get that part, but i don’t think a lot of normal people can afford to be purchasing new watches. i know I AM saving as much as i can because the job front looks pretty scary right NOW.

    I have purchased two rolex watches in the past 3 months. I am not worried about the financial situation at all right now. My job security has never been better. I assume there are others like myself who are still buying watches.
