I'll wager that Rafa Nadal got a "real deal" on the watch for its advertising value - but, what a show-off.

You could buy a new Bentley and a Ferrari for that amount of money and still be able to buy a Rolex or two to dangle out the window when you really need to strut your stuff.

(I know I'm probably wrong about the price of Bentleys and Ferraris - if so please accept my apology. I used these as examples without research - I'm still trying to figure out how to buy a Seiko and a used Volkswagen)
