High-end watch (I’m sorry, “timepieces”) companies like to advertise to car guys, especially those car guys interested in high-end cars. There’s even quite a bit of crossover with timepieces branded to reflect a customer’s high-end automotive preference. Other than the mechanical aspect, I don’t get it. But if I had $25,000 to splurge on a watch, I’d rather do so on something like this 1916 Tiffany pocket watch originally presented to J.V. Machesky by Hudson in appreciation for Machesky’s record-setting twice-across-American run. From the seller’s description:
