I've still got a couple of pairs of vintage 1970s Levis I bought in the '70s. Today, in Japan, they retail for $1,032.00 a pair.

Sadly enough, it sits at the bottom of a lake that's about 7m deep. The watch band broke as I was getting on the raft and I didn't notice for a few minutes. $2500 USD in the drink.
It was costly to own, however. I had it refurbished after 3 years. It had come to a stop. $600 in Canada, but only $200 in Thailand. I got it done in Thailand.
I've given up on watches. They cost too much. They are unreliable or need maintaining at high prices, and you don't need one if you have a phone. As Roy Kent said on Ted lasso when his Rolex got stolen: "So what? I don't need a phone and a watch.".

Far too expensive, though. I'd like a watch under $100 that is bulletproof. I'm tough on watches.

Actually, it looks like a good watch with a lot of accessories and things you can modify, on it.

Also, I am done with fancy watches. No one gives a rat's ass what you have.
They seem much cheaper, here...
