I was sitting in first class on a flight to Las Vegas last year to meet my wife for a long weekend as she was out there for a business convention. The other seats around me were occupied by guys in their late 20s to early 30s, and all wearing Rolex SS sport model watches. I really like watches, so I commented to the guy next to me that I liked his Submariner. I was wearing my Patek Phillippe, which he also noticed, and we started up a conversation about watches. Within minutes, the other guys surrounding us joined in on the conversation. It was a fun discussion.

These guys reminded me of me when I was their age. They were young, upwardly mobile executives who were driven and confident, who appreciated the finer things in life, and liked to wear something on their wrist that was a constant reminder to keep focused on the end game.
