Clerk:  Hello, are you shopping for a watch for yourself?

Jack:  Yes, I’m looking for a dress watch, something understated with a simple face.

Clerk:  We have plenty to choose from. Let me show you these quartz watches.

Jack:  I’m looking for something with an automatic movement, something that is self-winding.

Clerk:  Oh, in that case, let me show you these. These have the finest workmanship you’ll find anywhere, with very hard crystals. Are you looking for something with a bezel? A leather strap or a metal one?

Jack:  I’m not sure. My diving watch has a bezel and chronograph, but I’m looking for something simpler. What’s the difference between these two?

Clerk:  This one has luminous hands and dial and is waterproof and the other doesn’t have either feature.

Jack:  Hmm, I can’t decide. I’ll take this one, this one, and this one.

Clerk:  All three?

Jack:  Yes.

Clerk:  Let me show you these diamond-encrusted watches we just got in.

Jack:  You think I need more than four watches?

Clerk:  No man of style would be without at least a dozen.
