I love how he goes on and on about why the watch costs as much as it does when I probably would have believed him had he just said it takes a lot of man hours but now i feel like it probably doesn’t even take that many. It’s probably just over priced because it has a brand name. It almost sounds like he’s trying to make himself believe the watch is worth that much xD

Why this watch costs over $450,000... incredibly empty-minded, selfish, insecure, idiots with no sense of perspective whatsoever, have far more money than they are remotely deserving of, and instead of doing something good for their fellow humanity, blow it on a piece of crap they only buy to say “I’m so wealthy, I can waste money on stupid, pointless shit like this.” The only thing such people deserve is a dashed line drawn on their necks so the executioner knows where to lower the blade!

At least they've correctly said "cost", and not "worth" like some other idiots try to justify such purchases. It's great that such things exist, they are wonderful, and if you have this kind of money - go ahead and buy it. It's hard to put a price tag on art, and it's their decision to price it that way. However, no watch will ever be worth half a million. Only thing that makes watch worth anything is it's ability to do it's job - tell time. In which case a cheap 100$ quartz watch will be better suited for the job. More robust, reliable, accurate, and better value for money.
