Every now and then (monthly?), a glossy magazine called “Wish” falls out of the Australian newspaper.   It’s all about luxury,  top-of-the-range products.  I like to look at it, as it’s a bit of fun to glance over it, although it hardly ever mentions anything that I would have much interest in.  At one level, I suppose it’s slightly reassuring to know that there’s not much in that category that I feel I’m missing out on.

Hmm, and there I was, thinking that watches were just a convenient instrument for telling the time.
