am reminded of a class in college. The topic was the Pepsi challenge (the drink, not the Rolex). For some reason, Pepsi always wins these taste tests yet the market still goes Coke’s way.Oh, separately, about this ^^^...
I feel like this demand is often used for gatekeeping. "You can't know anything about something unless you own one." Please. And it's not always about Rolex, either, it's any watch that one person owns and the other person doesn't. I can argue, "You can't judge a Rado Diastar 'cuz you don't own one, yoo hoos," and although it sounds asinine, it's the exact same thing.
Speaking for myself, I won't comment on how a watch feels on-wrist until I get a chance to handle one at a shop (and, honestly, every Rolex I've handled felt nice and comfortable, unlike half the Omegas I've seen). Otherwise I can only go on what websites I read and which videos I watch, and that's not much different from buying car magazines and watching Top Gear (RIP).
then one posited the theory that while Pepsi may be better than Coke on the basis of a sip, in terms of long term drinking (through whatever occasion, different kinds of meals, etc), it may be the case that Coke is better.
