Well these Richard Mille watches are probably tech marvels, but I seriously doubt these prices could be justified by something else than Marketing, Fashion and Snobism.
I am not a communist or even a liberal. I would be a Democrat if living in the US. But, to me, spending this amount in a watch is just obscene.
