In the European Pocket Watch Forum, the subject of the Freak came up and the position was expressed that such an expensive watch would, of necessity, not be worn. I think that may not be true. It really depends on the attitude of the owner. I have an Omega Manhattan first edition that I wear every day and have had to have almost all the bracelet pins replaced over the last 15 years I have been wearing it. I also have a first edition Co-Axial DeVille that I wear on most special occasions. I wonder how many here have wristwatches in the Freak's price range (>$50,000) that they wear on a regular basis. On a statistical basis, we should have around 20 billionaires using the Message Board for whom such a watch would be a nice thing to wear. I will set up an anonymous poll in case people do not want to identify themselves.
