I guess those who can afford $20,000 for a watch can afford $24,000 for a watch.

The death of the wristwatch was well on its way before this, but this hike in prices will really put one of the last nails in the coffin. Young people just don't wear or use watches, they have a cell phone to do everything for them.

I wear Swiss watch but I accept Seiko is best watch in Quart watch. I wear Swiss watch because to get impression from customers. I felt guilty about that but one day peoples will recognize Seiko Watch is the best in the world. Sorry for now.
