Your grail worth how many months of your salary?
Have you bought it?

If it cost half year of your salary will you still get it?
What is your maximum tolerance?

iMHO, if you have to spend 5-6 months' salary on a watch, probably you should not buy it.

So far i tried to keep my watch valued approx 1 month gross salary.  Which means my watch target is in tendem with salary increment..
But.. that’s only hope, most of the time much higher than that.

About 2 months salary. But my next purchase will be around 3-4 months salary. Still holding the gun and yet to pull the trigger

I think you guys misunderstood, what I mean is your grail watch (could be the watch you dreamed of but not yet acquire though)
Some reply like 1-2 months salary is like face palm.. unless your salary is like easily 50k? or your grail watch is like 10k range?

If 1-2 month salary you would have just bought it anytime, it's not even a grail lol

Quite a few times : Daytona S/S, Daytona Ceramic, Sub, Hulk, Batman.
The ones without premium : Daytona TT, Sub TT.
The ones with discounts : DJ, DD, SkyD TT, YM.

I tend to be a flipper, and I find that the premium paid could be easily-recovered when I want to flip the piece, but it only worked for the hot models though.. In any case, time is more valuable so if I could get the piece fast minus the waiting list, it's still worthwhile in my books  :thumbsup:

Honestly, has anyone REALLY stopped after getting their GRAIL piece? I was offered my grail piece once, and I declined to take it then as I didn't want to be constrained from pursuing the hobby further. Of course, now that the grail model had since ventured into the 6-figures, I'm kicking myself for not netting it when it was still in the 5-figures  :o

If it cost half year of your salary will you still get it?
What is your maximum tolerance?

Good question, but it's better to be measured in how many % of your net worth.  :Laughing_on_floor: :Laughing_on_floor: :Laughing_on_floor:

This is not really a dream watch question but more a question about reasonableness. The watch I really like and want to buy at the moment is one month's salary post tax - an Omega Aqua Terra 41mm.

My question is if I go two months or even three full post tax salary on a watch, is that a responsible thing to do? Full disclosure, I am 27 turning 28 soon, have no investments (property or otherwise) and mediocre levels of savings (enough for 10% down on a reasonable property if I decide to buy).  Sound decision or put the money aside an focus on saving first?

My 1 month salary would be my gauge  :angel: Normally Id wait for yearly bonus and cop a good watch lol I usually buy 1-3 watches a year. Hoping to increase my purchase =)
