    I'm I Crazy or Stupid purchasing this one?

    Yes I found this ARSA one on Ebay
    At the begin, I do not know what Brand it is? ==> So I research and found it is Auguste Raymond, which is a fair reputation swiss brand
    I do not know why but that moment I feel it gorgeous and the high emotion push me to press the buy button
    Now when my emotion go down I doubt my self that whether It is a bad decision or not...!
    It cost me about 600 bucks, with that cost I can buy a vintage omega automatic (Which still look good)
    Although this one come in 18K and a manual wind

    Wait until the watch arrives and then you tell us how you perceive your choice. Right now, you presented a false dichotomy of choices.

    If the watch takes female spring bars than it may be of very light construction, 6 to 7 grams.
    In that case you have about $190 worth of gold. So this is your hard bottom line. If you like the watch who cares.
    I like gold watches and prefer buying screw back cases since they are better made and heavier.

    Congrats, a beautiful watch. But for me, I would check to see if someone good could clean up the dial.

    if you have the mean to purchase the watch (without having to resort to eating instant noodle for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next week or so) and you like the watch, then I dont think it's a stupid decision,

    enjoy the watch, that's a great looking vintage watch (in 18k gold!)

    I think this vintage time piece has character in the world of gold like an antique that wants an owner to appreciates it's wonders along with it's misgivings. If you take care of it and allow it to rest on one's wrist and let it softly speak to you with the joyful sound of tick, tick and/or tock and know it has rewarded you with the ageless passage of time!

    Congrats!!!

    i agree, if you like it and you can handle the price without changing your day to day life, go for it. Life happened to me and now I realize life is short.
