Beat me to it. :-dLas Vegas is the Rolex capital of course! Where bling is king!!!
LOL @ "Texas Timex," that is a new one on me.
That's allot.I always look at watches when I go to Las Vegas (or really anywhere for that matter). Last time, I saw a few Submariners while we were checking in at the Bellagio. I kept noticing them and decided to start counting. By the time we got to the elevator to go up to our room, I was up to 7.
Texas has bourgeoisie? I thought those guys were just on the television show Dallas (or hanging out on the campus of SMU). You know the world is hopelessly lost in materialism if bourgeoisie in Texas is now calling the shots. I would think most people in Texas wouldn't know the meaning of the word. From what I saw, most of Texas was pickups and SUVs (with odd passing/overtaking practices), guns, Mexican food, God, country music, big interstates, big universities, and steamy weather. I must have missed how the other half lived...I'd imagine Dallas. It's an extremely pretentious community, and indeed, they are frequently referred to as Texas Timexes, as watches for the lower middle class of the region. Looked at upon with great pride by used car salesman, new lawyers\doctors, and with some degree of disdain by the bourgeoisie.
I find those people wear Patek or Casio (either or). It's usually the lower middle class to middle-middle class that I see with Rolex. People with something to prove, basically.The Rolex capital is easy to find. Want directions?
Choose any big city. Now go to that city's business/financial district. Bam, you're there.
