In all seriousness, a "luxury watch" is generally going to be considered one for which the buyer pays more ... often a lot more ... for the cachet and exclusivity of a well-known brand, often with extravagant add-ons for decoration. The bus driver who wears a $50 Timex who drives me to the shopping mall will think my $300 Seiko quartz is a luxury watch, and for me it's the Rolex & Panerai & Tag Hauer watches I see and don't bother trying on ... and for the guys who wear those watches it's the $30,000 IWCs and so forth.
No one thinks that he himself is wearing a 'luxury watch' ... unless we're talking about 50 Cent who wants to show off how much bling he has. Or Donald Trump.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
