if i can't honestly afford something, i would not invest in something that would rarely be seen, even if a wallet is something i will pull out often.a watch will always be seen, and harder to steal.

my parents always said never to spend more on a wallet than the amount of cash you intend to carry in it.

i never have more than a thousand in cash, therefore i would never spend more than a thousand on a wallet.
Ha ha .. good one .. I always have less cash in my purse than the cost of the purse itself

I think that is a fabulous rule of thumb.

I would go with a watch, simply because the ZCP is such a small wallet too... I would prefer a larger wallet for that kind of money.

Either will serve as my 22nd birthday present in July, what do you guys and gals think?

Cheers
The watch, much better value !

To anyone who doesn't know the brand, the watch doesn't look like much (sorry if that offends anyone).

My husband once wanted to buy me a Rolex and I thought he was nuts! I'd never had a watch that cost more than $30 before and we settled on an $800 Seiko that I still thought was outrageously overpriced because a watch is just a watch to me.

But this is a guy who thought one $50 bag at a time was all anyone needed while I was dreaming of having LV - it's all in what YOU value.

If someone is willing to pay $6400, can you get some combination of other items that totals that? Otherwise the only reason I could think of for choosing the watch is the value.

Its for the mechanics in an engineering perspective (the watch movement). Also Glashutte is a rather small company and I like supporting the little guy :) and I give it a +1 for being a German brand. The Swiss have been king of the hill for too long!

Yes yes yes, my sentiments too! And I love the open backcase. My husband has a Baume and Mercier - the watch is, I think, 40 years old and has been lovingly restored. Its a manual wind with an open backcase and sometimes I tk it off just to watch the little clogs at work. I like my leather goods too but in this case, I think the watch wins.
