To buy or not to buy

I have a bit of a dilemma. As stated previously, I recently was promoted. I’ve been saying for the last 4 years that I was going to buy a nice watch when I made Manager. Well, I made manger, but I am having a case of cold feet. I think that the main reason is because I want to purchase the watch at the left. An awesome watch to be sure, but it is rather pricey. I mean like “oh wow, why the hell did you spend that much on a watch” pricey.

The thing about luxury items is that there is always a ‘good enough’ option that makes me take pause. For example, I have 3 or 4 watches at home that tell time just fine. If anything, I am sure that I have a digital watch lying around somewhere that would actually tell BETTER time than the one at the left and above. So, I am torn. I honestly am not sure WHY I am this torn, but I’ll keep everyone posted on whether or not I actually pull the trigger. I’ll likely do it over Thanksgiving if I actually do. Until then, I'm stuck ogling the pictures of watches online and reading the Vintage watch experience blog that Francis Phua keeps updated.
