What is the First Watch You Would Buy?



My imagination sometimes get the better of me and I can easily while away hours daydreaming. Today, my thoughts turned to those eight meat processing workers who split at $365 million powerball jackpot recently. From there, I jumped to the Mega Millions lottery, which today, stands at $42 million for the next drawing on Tuesday. From there, amid images of rolling around in cash, naturally my thoughts went to watches.

If you suddenly came into millions of dollars, what would be the first watch you would purchase? The lotto check has just cleared and you’re ready to spend. Tell me, what would be your first choice?

I think I would go with something a little odd, a little unusual. Something that I wouldn’t normally buy. For example, it’s conceivable that some day I’ll save up enough tips from my job as a Chippendale dancer and I’ll buy a Rolex or a Panerai. And although I would certainly purchase those timepieces with my lottery earnings, I still think my very first puchase would be something different. I’m leaning towards the Graham Chronofighter. Unusual, off-beat, yet still timeless and classy. I’m sure I could come up with tons more alternatives, and certainly more expensive ones, but that’s the first off the top of my head.

Let’s hear your lotto dreams… what’s the first watch you would buy with your winnings?

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. Hublot Big-Bang,

    A high-priced sports watch that I currently could not afford to wear to my soccer games.

    Following that would of course be a Rolex as well… White gold and Platinum of course!

  2. Ulysse Nardin GMT Limited Ed. — that watch is fantastic and I’d need it to keep track of time as I flew to Lake Como to relax after recieving my winnings.
