I wanna buy a luxury watch with my gains but I fear it will have a negative affect in people I know. I live in a first world Asian country but still feel like it would bring attention to myself too much. Thoughts?

    If you have less than 4m you’re a poorgay and you shouldn’t be buying watches.

    The only point of buying watches it to bring attention to yourself. It's a very vain thing to do. Don't waste your money, find God.

        Once you have found God you don't feel the need to flash your wealth or buy expensive things. You wear a watch to read time.

          What I guess is the problem and I think you provide a perfect example and reason why I’m not sure I should buy a great watch. It’s seething and jealousy and self righteousness. Somone seeing a nice watch makes them lose their minds. But I’m sure they want a nice wife, a nice home, nice clothes. BUT a watch!!! Holy shit, Sinner!!

          The opposite. I love watches. But don’t want people thinking I’m boasting wealth when I just want to use some of my money on something I love. Plus they are a decent enough investment compared to most materialist perches. Anyway this thread made me realize frick you I do what I want. If people seethe or get upset cause my watch is expensive then so be it. Thanks new biz.

          Here is my choice. 15k. Beautiful.

            Good choice OP (I have the green dial pano lunar). Ignore the poorgays here, if you are truly into horology then opt for good watchmakers that aren't chasing clout. I would stay away from AP, Rolex and look more into Vacheron, Ulysse Nardin, Moser, Parmigiani Fleurier, JLC, GP, Breguet etc. Most folks won't know what these brands represent, but those who know will respect you more for it.

            For good horology to value, I suggest Omega, Grand Seiko, Glashautte, Cartier (Santos editions).

    Are you buying a luxury watch for the sake of it being luxurious or a watch that happens to have luxury status?

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Neither. IF you know anything about watches you pretty much get what you pay for. All luxury brands are expensive cause they are hand made, in-house movements, rare, high quality materials, have companies with history in Watch making. Etc etc. Do you know there are some people who hand make watches literaly from scratch and it they can only make 1 or two a year. Yeah you can say a watch is a watch just like you can say a Nissan cherry is just a car like a Rolls Royce. But you would be wrong.

        High quality materials like rubber straps, porcelain cases, glass, and stainless steel LOL. Watches are a fricking joke. Black person tier luxury product

            I was only addressing the “high quality materials” point. I’m sure they’re difficult to make. But who gives a shit. You still look like a hedge fund new money douchebag in your Rolex anyways. These giant watches have such a garbage aesthetic you might as well be wearing a giant power rangers morpher on your wrist

            Sounds like your issue isn’t watches but fear of grown successful men. Bullied at school? Cause your knowledge of watches is very limited.

    OP, you already know this, but almost all asians are 'new rich'. They don't have any actual wealth culture or knowledge at all, it's almost all LARP. They buy obvious expensive things and clothes which are easy to recognize as high class. They buy expensive watches also, but not because they care about them, it's just because its what rich people do.

    The chances of them recognizing your watch and how much it costs is almost zero. You watch will be an afterthought, just an accessory. Part of your uniform as a 'rich white guy'.

    If you were around rich white people, you would probably run into watchgays or watchgay-adjacent individuals who might comment on your timepiece as a conversation starter. This will never happen to you in asia.

    So, if you are okay with your watch just being part of your uniform that's fine. If you are expecting to be recognized for it, then consider something less risky than wearing $10,000 on your wrist, which could easily get lost, stolen, or broken.

        44mm. 40 is too small for Panerai unless you have very small wrists - then go for a 42mm. Radiomir is my next purchase, and they're 45mm but they wear smaller than that due to the short lugs. I love the California dial without any branding: https://www.panerai.com/gb/en/collections/watch-collection/radiomir/pam01349-radiomir-california.html
