I don't really understand the legendary mystique of the Rolex watch. They look kind of blocky and boring. Sure, I understand they cost a lot of money, which in itself is basically all you need to establish an item as a status symbol. And they apparently keep pretty good time, but then these days so does pretty much any $10 watch you can buy at the local megamall.

Seriously, who needs to know the time to better than a few seconds anyway? Don't answer that. There are people who need to know the time to better than a few seconds. You know who those people are? Professional astronomers. I know this because I was one at one time. But nobody ever offered me a Rolex. How many scientists do you see wearing Rolexes, huh? Those are the people who really need them. Not film stars, for whom "on time" means "no more than 3 hours late".

In fact, I think I'll start a campaign to give all professional scientists Rolexes.
