    WHEN YOU ACHIEVE YOUR FIRST SUCCESS, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR,

    and buy yourself a respectable timepiece.

    It will say a lot about yourself.

    and I am not talking some Rolex. They are solid pieces and I love them, but there are so many other options out there!

    JLC
    OMEGA
    IWC
    Tudor
    Patek Phillipe (if your really killing it)
    Audemars Piguet
    A. Lange & Söhne

    They will scream "Distinguished and class" and show that you have an appreciation for fine things.

    The watch on my wrist is currently worth more than the car I drive.

    Its a form of art (mechanical). Those who appreciate it, understand the value behind it.

    Also, lets turn this into a "Watches" Thread

    Whats on your wrists?

    I'd never succeed as a yuppie.

    Although I own a few watches the last time I had one on my wrist was in 2015.

    I'm sure I paid less than $50.00 for that particular one too.

    Bling, not always but all too often, is often used to hide the lack of substance associated with the wearer and not as a complimentary piece.

    Also serves as a decent investment. As depending on model, they hold there value well. And can be used for collateral against a loan.

    Almost like walking around with a loan ticket on your wrist.

    I am into watches but as a status symbol they are more suited to the corporate world.
    Many of the self made people I know dress like tramps lol and they couldn't care less what people think.

    I am a big fan of watches considering I have a good looking personality I make it a point to wear them :)

    I own a Tissot, one all the way from Manchester United(The official club of BHW) and one limited edition from Celtic :)

    Below the tags I see “Watch Thread” in the famous BHW Yellow color.

    How did you manage to get that outside of the content box? Some blackhat magic going on here?

    Thx!

    I'll send you the one they provide for the BST approval as I have no use for that sort of thing + it will look 100 times better on you.
