Help me decide: Yay or Nay

Some months ago my good friend from #1wc suggested that my JLC Polaris is the Casio of the JLCs. I would like to respond by buying a more complicated JLC. Also preferably in Gold. Because Aurelian likes gold. After some research, I came up with this one. 41mm diameter, 14mm thick in gold. It ain鈥檛 pretty. But its got really cool complications. Dual time is useful. The watch got presence for sure. Should I buy it? Thanks

@Aurelian please vote on this one when you got a chance. Thanks

You are asking a group of watch friends who like to spend other people's money!? Yes. Please buy it. :-)

If @Aurelian made fun of my watch I wouldn't be able to sleep at night till I'd bought a better one.

Oh I always sleep soundly.

I don鈥檛 care if somebody makes fun of my watch.

My problem is, I have been focused on getting simple time only watches. With the exception of some chronographs. But chronographs are pretty common these days.

My most complicated watch is an Apple watch.

The next most complicated watch I have is a GShock.

I think I gotta at least have one out there in my collection.

If the main reason for buying a different, "better" watch is cuz someone said a "mean" thing about my watch, I think I'd be de-influenced.

However, if you were planning on "upgrading" anyway, I see no reason not to.

My lovely Rolex A.D forced me to buy a Two Tone watch that I didn鈥檛 want.

So now I gotta flip that two tone watch by trading it away, with a Second-hand store.

That pre-owned store has this cool JLC I kinda wanna get. But I鈥檓 indecisive. 馃嵒

Maybe alcohol will help with my decision. Fingers crossed lol

Just to add on to my story:

My Rolex AD sales-lady is really really really really smoking hot.

I will never not tell you to buy a JLC. If I were forced to critique it I would wish that the main hands were slightly larger and the crowns slightly smaller. I really like the world timer wheel and the AM/PM indicator. This would be a unicorn in any collection.

Indeed.

"Just take his money!!"

I think I would just rock the 'casio of jlc' if I'm honest.

That thing looks like an invicta homage 馃槀

On a positive note, the polaris is stunning
