    Is the watch worth more than the car? No snark, serious.

    You sound like a young man, the Panerai I think would be a far better choice.

    Never seen someone wear their watch on their meat before. Interesting new trend.

    TKE - never, ever, buy anything in (coloured) gold-steel.

    Those 2 subs make me a little sick and sad - get a tool watch, not a tool watch. Get a 5513.

    ive seen your posts in WAYWRN, TKE. A JLC Master Control would look awesome with your overall silhouette imho

    Subs are fine, but they are also the boring generic choice. Take your time.

    Thanks for the responses, I appreciate the opinions, constructive criticism is good for everyone. Both on this forum and on watchuseek people don't seem to like the two toned that much. However, I really like it (my best friend has the blue one) and I think I'm going to get the black two tone. I understand its a bit flashy and many people think its an "old man" looking watch, but with an investment this large I'd rather get what I really like regardless of these opinions I'm seeing.

    Everyone has been suggestion I get a SS ceramic sub but (in my opinion) I think those are two plain and boring looking. I really like the pop of color on the two tone. I guess we'll see how I like it after I order it. I can always exchange it if I don't like it that much, right?

    Also, EMart, I don't spend my parents money on anything I buy. I've had a job for the past 7 years and the first 5 or so years the money was put away into investments. My investments are doing very well, considering the economy. They have quadrupled (yes 4 times the starting value) in the past 7 years. My family and I both know how to manage money and we both seem to think it is okay for me to take out some of my money on a watch, as a 21st birthday gift and a college graduation gift to myself.
