Horological Meandering: Regarding movements I don't judge them as it's very hard to do objectively. I can judge the finishing but not the technological supremacy.

Rolex did a good in the past but in the last decade I think others have caught up and most are equal in terms of reliability now.

Horological Meandering: I can’t seem to find where Rolex bracelets are superior...

The clasp is more technologically advanced but that’s it. Personally I even don’t like quick adjustment clasps – too big and bulky, they disturb the overall appeal. In terms of quality Grand Seiko is superior in every aspect. Dials are even superior to Patek. Rolex wins the design.

Patek Philippe: As said, I've handled all relevant models. Side by side.

I don't like them! Neither by design, nor by quality or by price! Jeez!

Patek Philippe: Yes, I've tried it on. All relevant iterations actually.

None did anything for me except the 5740G for it's weight and the 5712 for it's design. Other than that it's all status. Execution didn't quite match the MSRP.

Patek Philippe: Well, for me it's just a picture queen. Underwhelming in the flesh, great under flash.

Just like with models... great on pictures but prudish in bed.

Horological Meandering: Damn I hate those idiotic pictures. They're just to keep the dumb crowd believing!

Yeah, seems totally reasonable to have earned $60,000 at the age of 17 by delivering newspaper. His father was a trader and congressman and little Warren already showed them kids on the block whos the smartest by doing business. Sorry for the ran but these kind of pictures flooding social media make
