Watch & suit - Page 6

I tend to buy alot of watches, I found some decent sources for Breitlings for big discounts so I may go in that direction next.

Here is a pic I took, lighting isn't great, but flash gets some nasty reflections. From left to right: Tag Heuer F1 Chronograph Omega Seamaster Bvlgari Solotiempo Breitling Crosswind Special Edition
The Bulgari is not a sport watch and looks rather thin. You should buy a new camera I guess. Where do you buy your watches?

My camera is fine, it's just dark here and I just shot it quickly without setting up the lighting. I'd have to move lights around to get a good shot at it, as the watches would cause reflections if I used flash. The Bvlgari isn't a sports watch, and is rather thin. I didn't say that I had all sports watches, in fact I have a couple other ones that are fairly dressy (IWC, etc) I just said the Bvlgari looked a little small on my wrist (although hot small enough that I don't wear it) Compare it in size to the Breitling next to it... although that watch is really big, as both of the watches next to it are full size. I get my watches from dealers here in the US, usually in the NYC area, as I have found some good prices there.

what do you call a good price?

30-50% off of brand new watches from authorized dealers.

wait, you have spent 60K on watches but buy suits on ebay?
post #82 of 114
Who said I spent $60k on watches? My AP and some of my Rolexes were gifts, I've bought about half of the watches that I own. Also, since when are having money and buying things at a discount mutually exclusive? Does spending $90k on a car mean that I'm not allowed to buy suits on ebay?

i'm sorry, i'm not trying to pass judgment, i was just surprised. i'm only 23, but, personally, i hope at least that by the time i spend 90k on a vehicle, i won't be bothered to bargain hunt and will splurge for the service high-end men's stores provide.

That's called being stupid with your money, and thus its probably not likely that you will ever have that kind of money in that case.

i don't think so. i understand that most people on here might disagree. however, i still think there is something to be said for walking into bergdorff's or barney's or wherever and just having a sales associate bring you clothes and espresso while you try things on without being aware of "price". luxorious clothing/accessories are just that--a luxory. i also enjoy the experience of shopping for clothes and feeling fabrics, etc... far more than i enjoy bargain hunting. when i can spend basically 6 figures on an automobile i, personally, will indulge myself in my clothes shopping as well.

I guess I've never been particularly concerned about level of service when it comes to buying things, I like to browse on my own, and since I set a budget for myself, I can purchase more high end goods if I purchase them on ebay and at discounters. I'll add more to this later, heading to a meeting now.

oh, "styleman" there's no reason for you to ad hominem and assume i won't be able to earn high wages. don't be so defensive, i'm entitled to stray from the groupthink from time to time and, among other things, prefer barneys to ebay. also, your logic is soft. being profligate and unwise with money says nothing of your ability to be a high wage-earner or to come into money.

And you speak from experience?
post #89 of 114
You call my logic soft, yet your examples are Barneys and Ebay? Read location - London, is there a Barneys in London?
