Is it better to wear no watch than a watch costing <$1000?

I was at a lunch and there was one guy in a short sleeve shirt wearing a gold watch. It looked a bit small on his wrist but I managed to get a closer look.

It was a Invicta brand watch? I'd never heard of them?

So I looked them up and I saw them on eBay and Amazon.. a bunch of watches that say was price $1200, sale for $120.

Was that guy trying to project that he is more than he is?
Just bought my missus an AP, not even trying to flex.

I bought the Military Watches Magazine years ago. The special introductory price for issue 1 was $7.95. It came with some German watch. It does the same job at any other analogue watch.

So... I sport my $7.95 watch and wear it with pride.

Bite me :tonguewink:


Have all your Christmas cone at once. Upgrade bro!!

It might seem like all your Christmas have come at once but here is something for you.

A LONGBO luxury watch ... That's if you can stretch and spend $9.99... blow everyone away at the dinner table this Christmas when you flop this out.

I can immediately see something I don't like in that one - the hour markings are bars. I prefer them numbered, like this one:

Seiko 5 is a fully automatic watch for $120 odd, great way to get into it and by a well known brand

Might be a bit disingenuous to call it a renters watch, I reckon it is a good base.

Here is my tip for renters. Put that watch above in your cart for Amazon.. leave it there . Watch in the next few days the Amazon algorithm starts fiddling with price. When it drops under the $120 mark, renters pounce like someone offers a free beer

If you bump into a Rolex owner, before they start laughing , get em in the heimlich manoeuvre. Make em look at your watch and tell you the time

Renters near and far, rejoice as Ive found a great watch for you. Go without 3 packs of cigarettes and your home. You can be elegant... It was about $400 when first released... For you $149 drive away
