Who Owns The Mysterious Rolex Watch In Hawkeye?

Four episodes ago, Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) had big plans to quickly take down whoever was prowling the streets dressed as Ronin and retrieve the black suit now haunting his life.

Especially those earning a reasonable salary. Sure, you can make a case for not paying off student loans, or even for financing a car versus buying new. (But better not to buy new!1) Genera...
