When the...
If you're just starting your career, you really ought to think twice about buying a watch that's noticeable. If you go in for your interview, and your potential boss sees you wearing a Rolex, he may just assume you don't really need the salary amount that you attempt to ask for. Likewise, you may just catch flack from your co-workers for owning such an expensive watch. And as Sovkiller mentioned, the first question out of most people's mouths tends to be "is that real?"....
Oakley nut here also. Have one of every single Juliet frame color. Unfortunately I also have to get most of them prescriptioned, as I can't stand wearing contacts, which = $$$. Now if only Oakley would hurry up and release their Polished Black Juliet as a normal frame here in the U.S...

I think I can get 4 Stowas with the price of that 1 Omega. Movement wise, which one do you think is nicer? (although I know it's completely different thing, one is auto the other one is manual) If I didn't know the price and the brand, I'd say that the Stowa is the more...

I think it already has. The Milgauss hype is definitely over from what I can see. Prices on used Milgausses are well below MSRP, and new pieces are not going for more than MSRP. This includes the GV. Even the Daytona has started selling at below MSRP...

Rolex has evolved, imho, from the "gold watch" perception people had of them in the '80s. The perception is still very much there in my experience. I've observed a very different attitude from a salesperson just very recently as I was browsing a Rolex showcase when she caught a glimpse of the cyclops date lens on...
I sold a bunch of watches last year, and recently picked up these two. 1994 Rolex Datejust Turn-o-graph "Thunderbird". I generally wouldn't ever consider buying a Rolex due to their reputation among the general public, but this is one of two Rolexes that I really, really like (black dial Milgauss is the other). It's rarely seen, it's not faked (that I know of), and it's very subtle and plain looking. And my latest arrival, the absolutely stunning Omega De...

I am just worried that since it's a display one (and I have to pay full price for...
Picked up a bit of a grail watch, in that I've been waiting a very long time for Seiko to release a watch like this. Just released in Japan on November 21st, Grand Seiko SBGR037J. Limited edition run of 300 watches to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its 9S55 automatic caliber movement...all 300 were already reserved prior to its release date. Specialties include fully blued hands, GS engraved dial, engraved GS lion logo at the 2 o'clock position to represent the 10th...
Just finished Code Geass and Code Geass R2, the first series is a bit slow and is really just a plot opener to R2, where everything really happens. Absolutely loved R2, especially how they manage to drop a new plot bomb at the end of every episode that makes you want to load the next one right up. Also finished watching Claymore. Just...wow. It's like Bleach uncensored, except its all females. Violence isn't held back at all in Claymore, blood and body parts go flying...
