Rolex-- should I, or shouldn't I???
 
Alright guys, at 40 years old I'm older than most of you, much less mature, but older. I'll work 7 more years before I retire but I'm pretty well set with my finances-- rich no, comfortable yes.

I have $5k to $7k that I was not really counting on, I'm thinking of buying a Rolex.
I've thought of a few other ideas but I keep coming back to the Rolex. Practical? hell no. But at this point should I care about practical? I have all the other toys I want but that much money for a freaking watch is crazy!

Help me out here.

Im tweentythree and not having money to buy cool stuff sucks right now. Id like to think that when im forty ill be able to afford the cool stuff. Do it man, you probably deserve it.

There are better watches than a Rolex out there. Do some research and then go from there.

You don't want to be spending that sort of money on something that you won't like/isn't as good as you think.

When I,at 35 years old,spent 3 grand on an Omega watch friends told me I was crazy,wasting money etc etc,yet everyday I still look at it and think"Damn!Thats a cool watch!" lol Come on,James Bond wears one.
You earnt the money,you want the watch so why not? I will agree though that there are far better watches for far less money than Rolex.Tag Huer,Omega,Breitling and Raymond Weil are all worth a look.

Personally if i had a spare 5k-7k i would go traveling again, if you havent done much i recommend it - go swimming with sharks, visit tropical islands, remote countries etc

So to be the hater hear but 5 freaking grand for a watch? Maybe Im cheap as shit but honestly I remember seeing a watch I really liked that was $380 and I just could not bring myself to spend that much cash on a watch. Its not like I couldn't afford it but why spend a pile of money on something you can buy at Wal Mart for $50.

I thought that smick watches are usually given as gifts or won on game shows. To go out and buy one that expensive seems a little :sarcastic12: to me but hey whatever floats your boat.

if i had 5k to spend id be off to thailand to trainnnn

I think you should buy a really cheap used car for like 2k and then put 3k rims on it.

I agree with this ^^ You are just paying for the name with a Rolex. They are great watches of course, but there are others that are better. Do some research unless you just have your mind set on a Rolex. Myself, I couldn't bring myself to pay that much for a watch, then I would always be worried about it getting stolen or someething :(
