I love the concept of expensive watches, but at a price level similar to what I paid for my used Beemer for a "regular" one, or even approaching the cost of a new Porsche for some of the nicer ones, I really can't justify that kind of money on a timepiece. I'm very satisfied with my Traser from both a functional and "gadgety" viewpoint (tritium tubes for the win, baby!), and I'll probably buy an automatic sooner or later, but probably rather in the $500-1000 range than one with more zeroes in it. I've been looking at the Endurance series of Limes watches, for reference.
