    Ok, so I'm working night and day on a product
    launch (MAJOR) and about to lose my mind.

    I decided though that once this is done, ads
    are complete, research is done, copy is 100%
    written, and hundreds of thousands of a giant
    pile of bullshit coming out of their ears because
    of me - I will buy myself a new watch.

    Now, I have a small wrist for a man, and would
    like to find something REALLY nice, you know
    high-end.

    At the same time, WHERE would you get it
    as I know you folks are always on the look
    out to shave the hair off the face of Abraham
    Lincoln pennies to get a good deal..

    I'd love to hear comments and suggestions.

    I this a fashion forum or marketing forum? But since you asked I like the Presidential Rolex. That's the gold Rolex. I own one with a diamond bezel and diamond chipped face lightly barked. Looks good on small or large wrist. Just my .02

    If you want to keep it sporty and slick without braking the bank Id go for an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean and get the rubber and the stainless strap.

    Well I spent 6 bucks on my last watch, so don't ask me.

    Who cares about what watch you wear anyways?
    Well, I guess it could help with picking up girls

    LOL. That's an honest response. As far as picking up
    girls - I just hope to keep this one. She's hot, funny,
    totally gorgeous and has a great body, what else
    could a guy want to top that combo?

    I just want something really nice to wear, and it's
    something I've never done before and I feel like
    after this is over - I've earned it.

    WOW! That's stellar. Just found this on Google.

    That's got to be the nicest watch I've seen in
    a long, long time - is there a reason you went
    with that over Tag Heuer?

    Well good for you...I wish I was that lucky. You just eliminated the only reason I'd buy something like that.

    I will never understand the rolex thing, though. And this is coming from someone who owns a $150 dime lol

    Being flaunty just isn't my thing lol

    Yes, the women.

    About 5 years ago, when I was little and only knew one meaning to "windows", I would obsessively collect coins. My favorite thing ever was to go to the flea market and buy all the coins I could afford with my chore money. I bought a 1901-S VG Barber dime that retailed then for about $100 for $50 after gewing him down from $65. It now retails for $150. I now have several hundred dollars worth of coins, all bought with my chore money. Yes, I have always obsessed over money lol

    Hey, you asked for a story.

    Zep, I what is Highend to you? Dont get me wrong Rolex and Tag are Highend to some where others think Jaeger-LeCoultre is highend.

    But if you want to know what I would tell you to buy its going to be the new Concord C1, I have one (SS Big Date) and you will love it! Simple and tons of options! If you have some time take a look at them, I got mine from Birks.

    Edit:Found an image

    '...Who cares? You're going to be late for your date anyway...lol.

    Personally, I don't like Rolex. They're so easy to fake.
