I call "BS". First, you can't possibly determine any real number of people who even noticed or didn't notice my watch. Secondly, two people recognizing my Rolex - a real number by the way - out of all the hundreds of thousands of people I've come in contact with in 30 years, that's one hell of a lot of courtious people by my estimation.
By the way, you failed to address the last part of my post you quoted . . . how many watches did you notice on the people you came in contact with yesterday?
I don't believe in intuition but I have a strange feeling someday I will.

There are three types of people in the world; those that can count and those that can't.
