    Nothing.

    I am still perfectly content with my Sumo. So most of it is going on my mortgage, and a small vacation for the family. I will hold off on the Speedy Pro for now.

    Carry on.

    I was hoping to see something really extravagant.

    I'm actually more impressed once I opened the thread.

    oh! also received my bonus...I'm able to spend up to 4.000/4.500€ on a watch...but can't find anything that appeals me that much at that price range (new, from AD, no dressy watches on strap, assuming a 10%/15% discount)...nada, zero

    are there any GS non hi-beat, on bracelet, around 39/41mm at this price range?

    Smart choice (which probably helps getting bonuses in first place).
    It's always a bad idea to go shopping when you have extra $. Whenever I have sudden influx of $ - goes straight to savings\investments, and all buying choices are made looking at overall financial position.

    I find shopping when $ heavy is risky. Akin to going to restaurant when starving. Every time I order I overeat and overspend, due to initial mind-set being influenced by immediate state of starvation. It's best to eat when you are not too hungry, and best to shop when you are not looking to spend a chunk of cash fast

    That's a mean trick Dave. I saw the title of your thread and thought what's he going to buy, what's he going to buy. Only to discover that you were going to spend your bonus on your family. Full bonus points for doing that though - it must have been SO tempting to splash the cash on a watch.

    Cool. Not another "My daddy is buying me a jet and a watch. What should I buy" thread.

    Good choice. I always wanted one of those myself.
    Sounds very freeing.
