    Me no.4. But no uniform no.4 pls.

    There are rich people who wear Casio and drive BMW.
    There are rich people who wear no watch and take Mrt .

    It's all personal preference.

    Only thing wil public transport is that being so crowded, there is higher risk that those shiny pieces will come with extra lines.

    Nowadays quite common to see Rolex on public transport, I've also seen IWC, AP ROOs, Sinn, among many others as well. I've been trying to spot a Patek on MRT, but have not seen any; can one of you Patek owners take MRT on more occasions

    In Singapore, I do think that it is a personal choice if one choose to drive. Well, I don't drive, but I also do not own any high end watches, so this topic really nothing to do with me, except me being the person trying to spot the watches... LOL

    Try working days during working hours between citihall to tanjong pagar mrt.
    Car park fee is ex in town. Travel between two offices for meeting in town is commonly via mrt.

    All I know is that the MeePok Noodle stall man where i go buy noodles sometimes, wears a Daydate.
    And he wears it with much more gusto then many people i know.

    So what is high end?

    I think we gotta set that benchmark first before this discussion can go further.
    I ever eat noodle cooked by a hawker wearing full gold day-date. *So honoured*

    same here. sometimes mrt is faster for me to get to meetings/office than waiting for cab (especially during peak hours).

    you are rite, what are "high end" models? This can be very subjective to different grps of ppl..

    To me, high end brands would be RM, PIEGET,VC ,PP, AP..which i cannot afford any of this now. I nvr seen any of this brands on public transport or at hawker centres before...nvr even heard frm colleagues and friends that they spotted any of this brands on public transport or hawker centre.

    wears a AP take public transport no way man, i would b very stress with ppl sardining me in the train and tendency of it getting knock and scratch you can imagine...

    The most common brand i have seen is Rolex , and in the recent yrs PAMs...
