Patek Philippe: If assumed if you own a 5270 that you have a servanta whose job is to wash his hands if your hands get dirty.

Thus, no danger to the watch. Seriously, though, you should be okay washing your hands. If you're going to the kind of party at which people fall (or get thrown) into the pool, maybe wear a different watch. Nevertheless, accidents do happen, and I feel that a top-quality watch should be safely subme

It deserves to be seen by as many people as possible.

Horological Meandering: The 2121 is intrinsically expensive, regardless of finishing.

Looking at the movement, it seems clear that economy was not among its design goals. It is certainly respectable to design a movement for the purpose of making it easy to manufacture and finish, and I certainly don't approve of complexity for the sake of complexity. In a luxury timepiece, however, I

Horological Meandering: Rolex ref. 1018 for me.

If it is to be the "only" watch, it has to work with everything from business suit to bathing suit, and that includes a bathing suit worn in the water.

Jaeger-LeCoultre: The business model is to raise the price of your watch from USD 10,000 to USD 12,000 based on the publicity.

The super-high end watches are intended to move JLC into a class that will allow them to charge more for their "regular" watches. If they also make a profit on the very fancy ones, so much the better.

Food & Wine: That looks pretty serious to me.

It doesn't have to be complicated to be good (although I'm not sure I'm allowed to say that on this forum).

Food & Wine: Very appetizing (pun intended, for New Yorkers).

(For some reason, my in-laws call smoked fish "appetizing," as a noun.) My spouse frequently makes similar items with various proteins, most typically using corn instead of potatoes as the primary aggregate material. They do not tend to last long.

Horological Meandering: As my wife says, "What are you going to do with the money?"

If the money is needed for life reasons (tuition, etc.), the watch should certainly be sold. As a matter of fiscal discipline, there is certainly no object to selling a watch (or trading it) to get another one, or to selling to replace money recently spent. For me, though, it seems to be a matter of
