What baffles me a little is spending so much on a perceived value, as opposed to an inherent value. Specifically say a stainless steel rolex. What's the actual manufacturering cost of a steel rolex like say the Batman, which has a perceived value of 12-14 grand. What's the actual cost or value -would it even be as much as 500 quid? If supply controls were removed and they were as readily available as a seiko diver? That sort of artificial inflation is not something I would personally feel comfortable buying into.
As has been said by myself and others “whatever floats your boat”
My friend bought a racing bike for €6500 second hand a few weeks ago. He’s always been into cycling and I’m happy for him. Personally to me it’s a piece of carbon fiber and that’s all but he loves it and will give him years of happiness cos that’s what he’s into.
