    Can't agree more. I regretted I didn't try hard enough to 'chase skirts' when I was 18. So ended up, now in my 50s still chasing...

    Oh no Mr pegasi. That's not really true. It's never cool watch(es), it has always been $$$. As the saying (always) goes, "No Money No Honey"

    Yes agree. That is what was on my mind when I wrote cool watch (=> expensive watch)...didn't want to be so obvious

    Boy, let me share with you how it should work. chase skirt first (and practice your econs 101 to not invest too much in it), get some bonuses along the way then ask her to pay half of the preowned omega cos she wants to get you something for your anniversary/birthday.

    HAHAHAH @advanced econs. Jump to better skirts after she finance half of the omega!

    And I think I won't sell the SMP cos it's timeless and also my first watch! Thanks for suggestions bros! Really appreciate your guidance and support!!

    The first watch always means something. My dad still has his very first 'real' watch, a seiko automatic. I can hear the nostalgia in his voice as he showed it to me, I want to be able to do that someday!

    LOL use watch to chase skirts? HAHAHA my male and female friends don't even know brands like Lange, Patek Philippe and Vacheron, so what's the point of buying a watch just to chase skirts? It's more for personal enjoyment, heehee :P
    "Oh enjoying the thrill of the chase is fine. Craving the distraction of the game, I sympathize entirely. But sentiment, sentiment is a chemical defect found in the losing side."

    surely wise words from another honors graduate of street uni. this advance econs theory is called Geared Progression (layman term - upgrading).

    I remember when I first went to an Omega Boutique many years ago, I asked the girl why anyone would want to buy the more expensive manual winding version when it was so mah fan compared to the automatic. And she shrugged her shoulders as if she couldn't comprehend it either. Now that I own the Pro, whenever I look at the Reduced, I feel a great relief that I didn't get the Reduced...the Pro just looks so much better, and I actually enjoy the routine of winding my watch every morning..
