    Well, I was all set to by the G&B I mentioned earlier - but some unexpected expenses and the desire for a new car and motorcycle are winning out. So maybe time to scale back my watch ambitions.

    Anyone have one of these? Cartier Rotonde:

    or Rotonde Nuit et Jour:

    or the third variation with second time zone:

    I'm thinking about buying Cartier Santos 100 XL. Is it a good watch to invest in, I think it's really nice but do someone have more info and maybe experience about it?

    Invest? Check the secondhand resales. I'm not a advocate of buying for investment, buy what you enjoy!

    No I didn't mean like that, that I should spend my money on that watch. Is it a good watch? Since i'm more of a iwc, rolex and whatever. I know 0 about Cartier..

    As Cartier go, they are a great 'luxury brand' but I think there are better watches for the money (you own one or two already, as you mention).
    See what others say.

    I like the design alot, but as you say I maybe can get more for the money as for a J-LC,

    I'm looking for something like that Cartier so if there is anything better I can get for the money, please let me know. This brand is totally new for me, as I was reading about it I dont see so much diffrent in that price class to other watches (other then it drops alot more in value after using) then maybe a Rolex.

    The one in front is a Tissot Visodate. Quite a handsome little watch for ~$500.

    If you like 'Cartier' then Cartier it is - but for the money Rolex, Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe & alike have got to be in the running. Also note those three brand continually noting high resales.
    Yes Cartier make the lower entry level stainless steel model but then jumps to precious metal and gems and that really one you are purchasing the bar (precious metal content).
    JLC are an amazing brand dollar for dollar (and their movement used widely by other brands) but I have no experience with owning one.
