Invest it. I am assuming you are young by the way you asked the question, and $4000 is a nice chunk to start out with for retirement.

invest a good chunk of it. and spend some on things that'll help me with whatever i need now (e.g. nice clothes for job)

If someone just gave me 4000 out of the blue, I would put 3000 in the bank and spend a grand on tennis stuff. I'm thinking about switching to the Ncode tour 90

If I had that kind of money I would use it to go to as many tennis matches as I could :D Or save it with my other money I have in the bank add that an maybe I could be a millionair someday if I get money like that ... KA-CHING$$$$ :lol:

id get a rolex from someone with a surplus for about a grand and then use the rest on cool ****. i bought a maurice lacroix for a grand instead, im set as far as watches go.

Any watch that costs over $200 is a piece of vanity jewelry; a pen*s extension. I would use my $4,000 to buy LOVE, and reinvest the remaining $3,800 in my greeting cards business.

The rolex and omega watches actually last quite some time.. Give me another example of a sub $1000 watch that can keep track of time as accurately as a rolex? not to mention they hold value very well, and they look cool

I'd use the money to buy a pen*s extension, then maybe I wouldn't have to buy love anymore...

What lengths do they come in, anyway. Do you pay by the inch or what?

Brent:Shame shame on you wanting that dirty disusting thing... :lol: Tsk tsk.*waggle finger on you* An why do you guys want rolex watches geez??? Can't you guy's already tell time with out a shiny thing on your wrist to tell you..lol Now if you guys know about watches sooo much let me know when they have one with a tv put in it an where I can buy it ? Would like to have one so I won't miss my tennis when I travel ..lol 8)

Nice one, Brent. Rolex = overcompensation... reminds me of a Hummer H2, except on your wrist.

I don't know, a guy could probably buy a lot of hummers for $4000.

Brent said:

For you, I guess, they come in gold, silver, titanium and stainless steel (with diamonds in place of the numbers), and, of course, the bigger, the better. Bling Bling. I know a gentleman who works a street corner on 5th Ave, near St. Pat's. every weekday- he'll sell you a "Swiss Made" one for only $50. Really. His name is Kwaku, he's a big guy, over 6"3 and carries his p.e.'s in a brown leather briefcase. Tell him Phil sent you.

I agree with those who suggested you invest it. So, Tolip, I'll tell you what... give me only half of that $4000, and I'll reveal to you several ways in which to get the time for free for the rest of your life.

Phil, that was probably one of the dumbest posts I've seen on this board, please start acting your age instead of your shoe size. Is this guy located near your 250 lb. mulatto prostitute friends?

If you consider Rolex to be a 'luxury watch', you probably shouldn't buy one. Want luxury? Buy Audemar or Patek...

I own a steel no date Sub and have been wearing it everyday for a few years now. This was my very first watch and don't think I will buy another one in my lifetime. It just works for me. For the record, mechanical watches are not known to be precise...

be willing to spend on a luxury watch like a Rolex? Or you rather spend on something else??

AAAA

Mr. Aames, I too agree that a real luxury watch should not be conspicuous.

If you discount your 1,400 and something posts and a few others in there...you obviously don't get it (surprise)-but I wouldn't expect any more from someone from Bumfru"k, Mississippi.

Rolex is only a psuedo-luxury watch. If u need a high end luxury one, try IWC, Chronoswiss, A.Lange, Blancpain...These are the big boys.

Did you actually READ the post, Coda. I know it's an extremely tough clue ("NYC"), and an even TOUGHER clue as to the specific location ("5th Ave. near St. Pat's), but you can DO IT, buddy, I know you can. He's there if you need to see his goods.

Anyway, GUYS, my pen*s extension comment was a JOKE. Got that, babe? Honestly. I'm actually somewhat of an amatuer horologist (that's the study of time, for the uninitiated), so I do have an interest in the subject, and know a little about watches. I'm all about performance-and not vanity or a brand name. Accuracy. And that can be had at $200 or less (equal to the cost of a loving). The most technologically advanced watch movements in the world are produced in Japan, and have been since the late 70's, which is not to say that the Swiss are slouches. You can have your Rolex's and Piagets and Sinns and Ulysses Nardins; I'll keep my $135 diver that still works like a charm after 16 years and is practically bulletproof.

@wright
08-18-2004, 07:13 AM
Phil wears a mickey mouse watch and giggles every time Mickey's arm hits zero. Oh, and Phil, I'm from Jackson, I'm not sure where that town is. I obviously knew your post was a joke, but next time try a little harder to make a funny joke. Funny should be a prerequisite for your posting a joke. Strain your little raisin sized brain to come up with one. I'm sure some of your fellow McD's employees are witty and humorous. BTW, Rolex makes several other watches than the sub, I would consider a $40,000 platinum day-date a luxury watch, but just because a watch costs several thousand dollars does not mean it's a luxury watch. I think Rolex is an interesting marque because of its fascinating history and unbreakable designs that can last a lifetime. I don't own a Rolex, but I wouldn't be caught dead in an AP or Patek Phillipe, they are just so yuppy. I do admire several Langes though.

08-18-2004, 02:09 PM
phil, I'm not stupid, what I said was a joke too...not a very good one though...and why do you know so much about penis extentions? Seems like you have alot of experience in that area. And how do you know so much about luxury watches, McD's doesn't pay that well. Go have fun studying horology with your mickey mouse watch...you probably only study it because it sounds like *****.

Phil
08-18-2004, 05:02 PM
Hey, it's my two puppies, @wright and Rickson, here to keep me company-c'mere pups, roof, roof. Jackson? I wouldn't admit that.

And Coda, I disagree. You are stupid. Very.

Coda
08-18-2004, 06:00 PM
Phil is that the best you have? puppies and calling me stupid...I guess I gave you to much credit for coming up with somewhat clever replies...and no Phil I am not stupid, I am going to UCLA next year...something you McD workers haven't even thought of. "Roof Roof," is that how you talk to your penny-*****s, shame on you!

Phil
08-18-2004, 06:41 PM
Roof Roof is how I talk to my pets, if they happen to be dogs. Ahhhh...you're a high school puke, Coda. Damn, why didn't I think of that; it seemed like your posts were immature and all, but I take it for granted that most people around here are adults, even if they happen to be clueless-many adults are, you know. You may be one of them, someday. Well, I try not to argue with children-they have little experience in the ways of the world; it's just not a fair fight, so...bye.

08-18-2004, 07:06 PM
so you're not going to post ever again? Now that's a reason to celebrate...well your "clever" posts did keep me entertained.

Phil
08-18-2004, 07:25 PM
Of course I'll post again-somehow, the admissions board at UCLA missed the fact that your reading comprehension is quite low. Or maybe you're a football player-but I doubt it. But you can certainly TRY to read my clever posts.
