Time flies by..

Today, I came across a magazine solely for watches, WATCHTIME. As I perused through the pages, I was mesmerized by the sheer volume of watch brands that exist in the market. I, being a watch collector (although small) myself, I found the magazine truly entertaining. But this is not why I'm writing this post. 
At the end, I came across a watch by Ferrari (see picture attached) which looked more like an engine. Additionally, I for one, found the reading time off the watch extremely hard. But the price tag on the watch read $235,000. I rubbed my eyes into see if it was actually $235.000 and not $235,000 but to my dismay it was the latter. Moreover, another watch I saw took GPS signals from 24 satellites to show you the correct time wherever you go.
I see both these watches as a waste. I mean can't you just change the time when you get off at an airport? Why do these rich people have to complicate even the simplest of things in life. People don't have clean water to drink and these snobs spend $235,000 on a watch that doesn't even show time correctly. Get a $2 disposable watch you stiff-necks.
