Who spends $125K on something they haven't seen in person?

 

ETA:  For those dreaming up witty things to say about him going broke because of purchases like this, watches, depending on what kind, hold their values relatively well, especially in this shitty economy.

 

Not really. Unless they are very rare they don't appreciate in value at all.

 

There are MUCH smarter investments out there to be had if that was what his intentions were.

Wait, I'm mocking the wrong underperforming player.

In related news, a Fed Ex driver quit his job today. When asked why, he simply stated "bling, bling, bitches, I'm out."

Not at a pawn shop which is where he would eventually end up selling them.  Or not selling them now that he trusted FedEx with $125,000 worth of merchandise.

I really wasn't concerned with appreciation.  My comment was directed more to the crowd that thinks purchases like these are "throwing money away."  At the end of the day, he will break even, plus or minus the circumstances.  Precious gems fluctuate with the market, but it isn't that drastic.  FWIW, I was assuming he was buying some heritage pieces, and not some flashy Jacob & Co trash that rap music popularized way back when.

The man earned his money. Let him spend it on what he'd like. Just because he spends that on watches doesn't make him a reckless spender.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
