    I asked the 'sales manager' in a Goldsmiths if he would have deal with me on the Rolex Sub, not a chance in hell, these things sell themselves. So I went to a independant, he offered a better deal of the bat than I was going to haggle for. I think OMEGAs are a far better watches than TAGs, with the exception of that I would like a

    Reasonable prices but main problem I see is that the warranty t&c's say that the warranty must be honoured by them which causes problems living in England! Think i'd be more inclined to purchase in the UK or from a duty free store. It almost makes it worthwhile to hop on a cheap plane to Switzerland for the day & buy the watch in the airport, have a nice lunch somewhere & fly back, total cost has got to be cheaper than a normal UK purchase!!

    Oh of course, yes. Blinding obvious now you have mentioned it, we all have the gayness. I personally have the good gayness, but I think a few on here have the bad flavor.

    Blimey, a lot of pricey watches there.

    I just make do with a £60 Casio G Shock for normal day to day stuff and a Seiko Kinetic for when I need to look a bit smarter and look like I'm making an effort.

    God not been on here for a while and missed this thread! Why is spending a few grand on a watch gay?

    Surely it's no different than spending 10k or 40K on a car? Does driving an expensive car make you gay? Afterall the both get you from A to B!

    Do I really have to explain the difference between something that tells the time regardless of price and a car?
    Yes most cars will get you from A to B, but there is a lot to be said of how they do it and the physical enjoyment of driving a decent machine. A watch just tells the time whether it's £10 or £2k. The time it tells is no more enjoyable either way, therefore the additional cost is purely down to the jewellery factor which = gay IMO.
    I am quite happy to spend over the odds on something that performs better than a cheaper version, but I just don't get the whole divers watch, good for 100m etc etc when no one I know would ever consider wearing their £1200 TAG when they go diving (even if they dive at all). As for Rolex's, just a tax on people with no taste I'm afraid.
    If money is no object then knock yourself out, but I get the feeling that very few of you can spend £2k without noticing it.

    Some people like watches some don't. If you don't like them don't post on a watches thread simple as that.

    I like watches, just don't see any difference between a decent £60 one and a £1k+ one, apart from snobbery

    my last two have cost under £100 for both ones a adidas and the new one is a Fossil watch. I change my mind on watches that much I dont see the point in a expensive one tbh.

    oh and the fact that the only expensive watch i had i lost while out on the lash

    Recently had a 14 yr old in on work experience, he too expressed things he didnt like as "being gay"!! An interesting analagy and obviously very cool and funny, if your 14!!

    A good time piece does indeed cost a lot & does indeed tell the time just like a 10 watch. Who cares though, its a fashion statement just like putting gel in your hair or wearing an Armani suit. It certainly dosent mean that you want another man to bend you over & ram his "richard" in your butt!!!!

    lol

    Also an heirloom, my grandad bought a rolex then left it to my dad then my dad has left it to me. And if i ever have kids i'll leave it to them. So it may be an expensive watch but it's never going to lose money and when you divide between all the generations it's not that expensive.

    Please read what I actually said. I said expensive watches are purely jewellery and the only men I know who spend a lot of money on jewellery for themselves are gay men.

    Goes back to my point of a £10K car and a £40K car. You can get huge amount of enjoyment from a £10K car and a numb driving experience from a £40K car and vice versa...

    But we will agree to disagree. I like expenses watches and collect them. You don't so fine. Horses for course. If that makes me gay in your eyes big boy so be it

    But thats not what you said, you said that much money on a watch i.e. jewelry = Gay. Is Puff Daddy gay in which case then??!!

    I was summarising what I originally said for the hard of reading:
    "More like Gay, the only possible explanation for spending 1k+ on jewellery for themselves."

    As already said previously as well, Puff Daddy is a multi-millionaire with no taste, so therefore the argument is moot. Don't see too many millionaires on this forum.

    As for thread direction - wouldn't it be better to just post a link to the Argos web site?

    A basic grasp of the English language is always handy when posting:
