I bought the Eagles watch on Ebay!

$198.00 including shipping & no tax.

Anyone who spends more than that on a watch is a farging toolbag.

WAIT...you can rent firetrucks?

I don't wear a watch anymore since a cloce came free with my cell phone.

When I did wear them I was too lazy to change the battery so I just threw them out when they went dead, so I would be against spending more that $100 on a wrist weight.

When I was a kid growing up in Jenkintown, they used to give firetruck rides on July 4th for all the little kids.  We'd pile up on top of them and they'd drive around town with the lights flashing and the sirens blaring.

I think I was like 6 or 7 at the time.

Can you imagine them doing that today?

Nope. Swatch comes really cheap but it's good. I don't use it now though.

I think it depends.

I always wanted a really nice watch but I figured during college it was pointless with the stuff we did.  I stuck with Fossil and Kenneth Cole.  I did promise myself that once I graduated and got an actual job in an area I studied that I treat myself to a nice one.  I narrowed it down to a Movado and TAG.  I got the Movado 2 months ago.  It was 800 bucks but I got it online and an older model for 355.  My parents ended up paying for it for my 25th birthday in the end though.

So, I can see spending some money but I think 4gs is a lil pricey.  I doubt ill ever go that high unless Im making mid 6 figs, which I doubt will happen.

When you inherit the beach house and sell it, you'll be able to afford 250 Rolexes.

Wife bought me a really nice Tag Heuer as a gift earlier this summer, after she got a good bonus at work.  I think the price was circa $1500.  It's much more than I would have ever spent for myself on a watch.  I had a Citizen Eco-Drive for the last 5+ years that cost under $300, and I was happy with it.  Still, the Tag is a much nicer-looking watch and does keep better time.  I could never see myself spending even this much on a watch, but now that I have it, I love it.  That said, spending $4k+ on a Rolex is something I absolutely never want to do.
