I can understand paying more for an actual watch. Something like a Rolex is good to go for years and will retain a substantial amount of its value. Additionally, there are some underlying mechanics that provide value in the movement of the watch. Not just a different band and image displayed on the screen for a watch face.

This though? As soon as the next gen comes out, it's worth next to nothing. And it looks the same as the $200 one that your grandmother has, and waitress, and half the other people you see every day.

Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
