You're all over the place today. Let's get focused:If you say so. You can only make those dives with a Rolex because A) Rolex bought the screw down crown patent from a guy name Perregaux and B) Rolex has blue collar roots and the men wearing PP, AP, VC and other high horology pieces were the ones paying the divers with Rolexes to go down and catch them dinner or weld the hulls of their freighters.
By your thinking, a Honda or Toyota is a better car than a BMW because it's more reliable and robust (like Rolex is vs high horology pieces according to you), but you own a BMW right? Maybe one day Rolex will catch up to the prices of AP, VC, and PP among others but not until Rolex itself starts thinking their watches are actually worth that. They have 100+ years of experience and still don't think that's the case now do they (just look at the MSRP aka the value Rolex thinks their watches are worth)?
You contend that PP, AP, and VC make better watches than Rolex, but Rolex exceeds those other brands on all performance metrics- movement reliability, timekeeping accuracy, power reserves, and exceeds those other brands on the most important metric of all- design.
You contend that the only reason someone would prefer a Rolex to PP, AP, and VC is social media and that Rolex owners are over valuing status. And yet there are millions more watch enthusiasts on Rolex waiting lists than those three other brands combined, and those wanting a PP, AP, or VC are willing to accept 20 to 50 year old designs that are well passed prime.
Conclusion? It's PP, AP, and VC that are overhyped and overpriced. Less performance, old design, and more expensive.
