A guy shared that he recently bought a Rolex watch for $46,000 from a reseller because he was trying to be humble.
He did not mention the model which he bought but simply said that it was ‘not very expensive’.
Here is the story
To be honest, I don’t know much about watches.
I’ve only worn Casio when I was a recruit during NS and bought a G shock for myself as a reward when I commissioned as an officer.
I’ve worn that G Shock watch ever since then as it has sentimental value until recently when my boss told me that I should get a watch with more status so that I can give a good first impression when I meet my clients etc.
Seeing that my boss wears a Richard Mille which I googled it to be at a price I can’t afford, I decided to be humble and got myself a Rolex at $46,000 from a reseller in town.
Well, after I bought it, my close friends have all came in to comment that I should not have spent this kind of money for a watch as all watches tell the same time.
Despite my efforts in trying to explain to them that $46,000 is my way of being humble in front of all the ‘big shots’, they still think that this is no way near humility.
Am I being too proud by doing so?
