Money is the most precious part of today’s society. It is that factor with the help of which we are growing the human civilization as well as getting progress in other fields too. But it may have a lot of money and looking to burn it to get rid of some paper, read on.Some of you may have seen a post I put up last week about the run-around I got from an AD with a Tag Heuer Twin Time I purchased back in January. Here is the thread: request for advice
TL;DR version: I got my money back.
Now, I've got money burning a hole in my pocket. I didn't get responses in the previous thread (aside from a friendly PM) about where I should go with this money. Thus, a new plea for recommendations.
Here is what I wrote previously:
You've also highlighted to corollary question, which is: at which other watches should I be looking? Essentially, I'm looking for something that is understated, but has a bit of a sporty flair. I keep coming back to the Omega Aqua Terra, but this would be a big financial stretch for me at this point. Other watches that I've considered include Oris Big Crown Date, some of the Ball Engineer variants, Tudor (Heritage Ranger, North Flag, and Style models), some Baume et Mercier Clifton variants, etc. All of these are available locally. Online, I've looked closely at Sinn, Damasko, and many others. Ideally, I'd like to buy locally from an AD, although admittedly, this strategy didn't work out so well this time. I'm not opposed to a used watch in good condition.
My current collection includes: Seiko SKX013 on a nato, Hamilton Khaki Field auto on brown leather, and a Stowa Flieger Ikarus on black leather. As you can probably surmise, I'm not really a 'flashy' guy.
My (somewhat flexible criteria) include:
Stainless steel - silver case/band
ideally a black or gray face
would love a date window
Ideally 41 mm or less, unless it wears small
Roughly in the price range of the Tag
But the question is, “Is it illegal to burn money, or can we can do it publically?” This is the most important question that comes to mind because we are talking about burning currency. So is it illegal to burn money?
