Perspective is a strange thing. It just occurred to me this morning (as I was cleaning up dog poo) that there's a real big fuss over a bag costing more than $10K, but people hardly bat half an eyelid or twitch a toenail over a good swiss watch which would cost more than 10K anyway. See these uncles out there with their Loh-lex, or some banker with their Patek...heck, any good watch worth their hand-made parts would set one poorer by over 10K at entry-level. There's even magazine journals and horology magazines and catalogues on these wrist accessories. So what's the big hooha about a hard to get bag? Nothing. Madame Birkin, Herr Muller and Msier Cartier are probably in the same social class. A dozen Madame Birkins and her cousin M'selle Kelly will hardly impress the the lofty M'sier Patek, who will hardly make an appearance unless one's bank account is in the elite class.
So moral of story? No need to bat any eyelashes at the house of H, because the true signal of one's elevated bank account is only shown by the piece worn on your wrist.
