So I know there have been posts like this before, but what the heck...

I just decided on an offer, and signed the contract today... and went and spent half of my sign on on a Rolex.. I had my eye on the Milgauss, but in the end went for the GMT II...

I was just curious to see how others spent their sign-on or celebrated landing a job?

I know it seems foolish to spend so much cash before even starting, but the way i see it, buying a watch is a pretty good way of remembering a good moment and rewarding yourself after a gruesome job hunting process..

    Don't listen to others. Spend your money the way you see fit, but make sure you got enough for that rent! I don't know where you at but in NYC the rent is too damn high hehe

    Do what you want not what you can!

    I guess his logic here is that spending one's signing bonus on watch is a much better and memorable way than just wasting it on parties, drinks and chicks. So I see you point, Smooth Nico, although I have never been a huge fan of watch and would not spend my bonus on a single item.

    I'll probably spend at least 1/3 - 1/2 of my bonus on traveling different countries and climbing appalachian mountains. So to each, their own -

    People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis, you can't trust people Jeremy

    btw...I will be spending my bonus on new home theater system, some wardrobe additions, and some vacation travel...I hope it's enough. hehe

    A nice watch is a good thing to buy as in Finance status matters and ppl actually care about the watches and shoes you wear...but this is when you are getting more senior of course.

    Nice watch, is that the one with the green hand and ceramic dial?

    I'm talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing.
