What's The Difference Between A $5,000 Watch And One That Costs $85,000?

It never ceases to amaze me how much people will spend on jewelry and accessories designed to do little more than impress others with a display of wealth, but at least expensive watches tell time while looking fancy.

Now a fifty dollar watch always worked fine for me, but men who demand an elegant timepiece on their wrist will spend thousands on a Rolex, TAG HEUER or an Omega, like the $5,000 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch.

And if that seems like a crazy amount of money to spend on a watch imagine spending $85k on a Patek Philippe 5170P, with diamonds on the dial and a platinum case!

So what's the difference between a $5k Omega and an $85k Patek Philippe? Watch this video by Watchfinder & Co. and find out!

Well, PP certainly puts a lot of perfection into their watch, so the price reflects that. But who really needs that much perfection in a wristwatch. It's just a vanity object.
