For a truly classy, harder to find classic, take a look at a pre-owned (long discontinued) 34mm JLC Master Ultra Thin manual wind (either black or silver face). That movement and the watch is soooo thin, and the extra technology to make it look even thinner (due to a razor thin edge) is not something you see everyday. The exhibition casaback displays a movement that shows why they are the watchmaker of watchmakers.
Force yourself to wear an Apple Watch, one month for each hundred (thousand?) dollars of purchase cost.

Right, the titanium models have a much more subdued case (but perhaps put on more of a light show with the dial). The Rikka's dial is subdued in many ways, even with the gold indices and hands, but the case really shines. It really is hard to fully appreciate the Rikka without seeing it in person. It has surprised me with how much more versatile it is compared to my first perceptions.

I would invest in a good private investigator, find the responsible party, and then lure the thieves into repeating another theft after having advertised to the world that I had bought several grail watches. Only this time they would be greeted by electricity and a big dog with a penchant for Swiss watches. And oh yeah, a few fake Rolex Daytonas. With super glue applied nightly. And then I would treat myself to a Casioak. ;)
