Which Watch Wealth?

In this second installment of the Irregular Times luxury shopping challenge, we present a tale of two timepieces.

One of the women’s watches is a lady’s watch. It costs $2,950.00.

expensive women's clocksThe other women’s watch is just a woman’s watch. It costs $127.94.

Which watch is which? What makes one watch worthwhile and one watch worn by working women?

    I don’t know about watches but if I were to analyze the components of each watch in person I could tell you. I don’t even wear a watch. I use my phone to tell me the time. If the watch on the right indicated they were real diamonds, then yes that is the most expensive one but the one on the left is a simple watch. Simple watches are more expensive than the flashy ones with fake crystals. But like I said, I don’t know my watches because I don’t wear any.

    Speaking of watches, or in this case BEING watched:

    Obama Administration’s Backdoor Wiretap Bills Threaten Political and Privacy Rights
    “Under the guise of “cybersecurity,” the new all-purpose bogeyman to increase the secret state’s already-formidable reach, the Obama administration and their congressional allies are crafting legislation that will open new backdoors for even more intrusive government surveillance: portals into our lives that will never be shut.”
    (there’s WAY more)

      With antifascist there’s always WAY more. He writes about the longest articles in the world. But in his case that’s a good thing.

    Well, the first one has got to be the pricey one: Montana Watch company is a luxury US watchmaker. If somebody wants to buy it, even though it’s an absurd amount of money, I’ve got no problem with that. At this point we need all the jobs we can get. Luxury watches are superior to cheap watches: they keep more accurate time, they last longer, they can be passed on to grandchildren; held long enough they can function as an investment.
    I’ve got an old Elgin 16 pocket watch that I bought from an acquaintance who refurbishes vintage watches. I can’t wear a watch because I’m allergic to all metal but gold (and even if I could afford a gold watch, I wouldn’t spend the money on something so trivial). It mostly hangs on the wall instead of a clock. I usually tell time by looking up. I’m good to within 5 minutes: not exactly precision, but good enough for most things.
