Not quite the same as getting a Rolex with and engraving :D
It's not about the money. That is a stupid game to play, especially with people like Ive. He would probably laugh at the thought that a Rolex is a luxury for him (and he probably hates a clunky "in your face" design or overt displays of wealth). He would probably get something made by Patek Philippe or similar to his own specifications - and thin! I loathe watches like Rolex, and that is not because I couldn't buy one if I really wanted one.

First of all I never said that it's about the money — it's about worth. Old Rolex watches hold their value, while old Apple Watches are nothing but obsolete(and this isn't even a watch).

Secondly, maybe you don't need to speak to what Ive would 'probably' do/want?.. It seems a bit like a fantasy game :)

Good to see this. Other than the pin it looks like there is no other difference.

"Sir" ... I still can't get past that. It's just a wee bit ridiculous.

More ridiculous than wearing a powered wig on one’s head while having very serious discussions with other men who are also wearing powdered wigs and taking themselves very seriously?
