A gold watch to reflect the time of your life

In four years I will buy myself a gold watch. I've delayed the purchase for two reasons: economics and self-worth. The former is self-explanatory. As to the latter, I've always equated gold watches with merit and age, indicators of how successful and how old you have become. I want a gold watch when I rightfully deserve it, when I have the success to back it up.

Show and tell

Why spend HK$1 million on a complicated watch movement if nobody can see what's going on? That question can be dodged by acquiring a skeleton watch, where all the action is on display.
