I know Rolex and Porsche (among other fine automobiles) go hand in hand.
It's funny how the design lines of cars and watches are so similar at times and always drive out the passion in all of us.

A product that is coherent in form requires no embellishment. It is enhanced by the purity of its form, Porsche said of his design work. Good design should be honest.
