Buy the best or don't buy it at all. The reason being, that we will always want to get better and better things over time. For example, a watch. I buy a Seiko today for 500, because I think it's good for the price. In 2 years, after a raise, I want to upgrade to a Tag, I pay 3000. Then after another few years, you get another watch of a little higher prestige for say 6,000. Then finally you buy a real watch, like a rolex, for 10,000 and up. You'll have spent over 20,000 and all you ended up with was that rolex. So why didn't you spend that money in the first place and buy the rolex. You'll have saved money in the long run, and would have had a rolex for that entire time you had those bullshit watches. The time cost of money here is less than the cost of owning all those bullshit watches before you finally bought the rolex. The key is that you are going to end up getting the rolex in the long run no matter what, thats the principle that makes this theory work. (substitute rolex for any other high end watch you respect or think highly of). And it's for that reason II've had it since I was 21, and was the first watch i ever bought and will have it until I'm 81. Didn't need to spend 15,000gs worth of bullshit tags and tissots to get there. There are some of you that may say, "not everybody has that kind of money douchebag", but if it means that much to you, then you should finance it. And it obviously does mean a lot to you because you're here on this forum, with hundreds of posts, all day, every week, talking about the stuff you buy. The same applies for anything that is TIMELESS. Anything that will never go out of style.
