He saw your watch, likely wanted it for himself, looked it up, and was shocked at the price-tag.No. Most of my friends are of the opinion that I've got too many watches already. If they had any idea how many I'd really got they would have me committed. One guy went to the trouble of looking one of my watches up on the internet and was just a bit shocked when he saw the cost of it.
A friend is one thing. But a neighbor, co-worker, mild acquaintance, etc.; completely different. They don't even realize it's genuinely rude to ask a non-loved one, "How much?"Once a neighbor asked the price of a watch I own and I told him; he subsequently told someone else. I no longer discuss price.
