    When people get money, what do they get first? The watch? Or the car?

    I'm curious to see what you all think about this. Down here people love their cars, and I'll see guys driving $100,000 cars with a cheap watch on their wrist. Don't get me wrong, we have some nice watches floating around, but it seems that when people come into money here, the first thing they do is go out and buy a fancy car.

    Have you all noticed the same trend? For some of you folks who have followed watches for a longer time than I, has this always been the case?

    I think most of people will get a new car when they suddenly have some big money, the car is 1,000 times bigger than a watch and you got recognized 100 times faster.

    I don't think the general population is into watches so it makes sense they would go for the car.

    Okay, I'm about to lay out some beans on myself here... I'm expecting a serious chunk of money soon from a legal settlement due to a car wreck I was in earlier this year, so I can safely say that I was briefly considering a new car, but after thinking about it, I realised that there's nothing wrong with mine. I'm in an 8 year old VW Jetta, and VW's are solid. Therefore, I'm going to take a drive to my nearest AD (which is two hours or so away via Interstate 10) and purchase an Omega Speedmaster Pro. :) It's quickly taking the place of the Rolex Sub as my top grail.

    Apologies Mike, but I'm reminded of this when you said that

    When people get money, the tend to get the ar first, as most people are in need of a good car more than a good watch.

    When I first made decent money, I saved and bought the new car first. No sense in driving an old crappy car and wearing a nice new watch, right?

    I started with guns, then the watch, then the car, then the women...
