Excuse Me, WatchFinder? “Entry-Level”?

Hey John, sorry that was me who deleted it actually. Sorry about that. I felt like I was spreading too much controversy 😬

Nothing about luxury was mentioned in their title. It just says “The perfect entry level watch”. If it said, “the perfect entry level LUXURY watch” then that would’ve been fine obviously.

Thank you very much, I love it as well. Been wearing it a lot recently.

Of course, but I think a relative term is "affordable". As you said, for someone making $200k/year a watch would be considered "affordable" but not more "entry-level". Entry-level is something that is defined and concrete. Is this entry-level luxury? Yes. It's not just any old entry-level watch. To me, simply stating something as "entry-level" with that price tag is simply incorrect.
