I would go fot the Birkin, but that's probably because I'm definitely not a Rolex-person.

Both are investment pieces that should increase in value over time. I say Rolex though.

That's a tough one, but I'd go with the Rolex. Mostly b/c I don't have a watch, but do have a nice selection of lovely handbags. Also, I have a PHH who would much prefer me to buy jewelery than handbags.

I am not a fan of the steel/gold combo on Rolex's and since you have a smoking hot Santos, I would get the Birkin!

As luck would have it . . . . I have Both (steel/gold rolex with diamonds and an Orange birkin) so here is my experienced decision.

Go for the birkin. The rolex is a great watch but so are your other watches. Birkins are way harder to come by than a rolex. If you could get your hand on a birkin . . .don't pass it up. My orange birkin is my favorite

I'm not a fan of either one as their are a bit of a cliche, but if someone offered me my choice of the two I'd take the Rolex. It has more staying power, less chance of aging poorly, and a good resale value should you get tired of it down the line.
