I just saw this Murder On The Orient Express Fountain Pen that costs more than $2,000.00, but it's so beautiful:



What (almost) useless items you would buy if you were a millionaire?

The Victorinox Swiss Champ XAVT. It's essentially a really, really chonky Swiss Army knife.

I've always been fond of Swiss Army knives and I adore this damn thing.

It's a one to one replica of the Golden Gun from the film of the same name. It can also be completely disassembled into its base pieces.

I live in a bicycle-friendly town and just bought a brand new car that I love in February but I still badly want an eBike just to commute to work with on nicer weather days.

Tough to justify when my context is that I just bought a very expensive mode of transport recently, but my commute would be far more pleasant (and green) if I was just leisurely biking in.

I still need the car in my life to travel long distances like seeing my mom ~170 miles away, but I just want to bike to work and around town for my day-to-day, but I am finding it so hard to financially justify, especially with eBike prices.

A traditional bike would be much better price-wise but it's more of a luxury consideration because I'm not really keen on this being a health investment, just a leisure thing with a side of lifted guilt about going green and emissions free (even though that's not necessarily true in my case).

Curta calculator. I have no real use for it. I don't even like math. But it's such a neat device.

I'd love to have one of the RoboCain stop motion puppets from Robocop 2. They go for about $60,000.

Jesus, I need to start thinking bigger. I was just thinking I'd spend on a steady stream of Cohibas lol

Audemars Puget Millenary


They've come down quite a bit in price. The last time I looked at a piece in this line I was quoted a bit over $100,000. Had a lot more diamonds, though.

Off white Jordan ones but if I wore those I’d probably get jumped

I’d say every current Lego set over $100, specifically the UCS star destroyer

Various small ornamental blades.

I'm a sucker for nice metalwork that can stab, slice, and fit into a pocket. Only, I guess I'm not that much of a sucker, 'cause I don't have any.

A bunch of automatic watches I've seen over the past few months.
Also those pvc Street Fighter statues that are incredibly expensive (over $400).

A custom Rickenbacker-style 4003 bass.



This with a shorter bolt-on neck, pickups that fit the punk/ska style I'm into better, and made by an independent craftsman so my money goes directly to the individual themselves and not to a company with a real need to re-evaluate their priorities and attitude towards their clients.

I want a swim spa. Not that I actually have anywhere to put it in my apartment, but I don’t care.

Mouse bungee. I have maybe had 2-3 instances where a mouse cord rubbing against something else caused an issue in years of PC gaming, but look at how he bend, dude. He bend so nice.

My friend’s millionaire dad has one of these. AMG G63 Editon 1 version with all the bells and whistles. Hand delivered by the German Engineer who built it. I’ve sat in it. It’s one hell of a car.

It’s been sitting in his climate controlled garage ever since. He has no plans on driving it.

Does this count?

A red Monstro 8K with all the bells and whistles, with a set of Cinema primes and zooms.

It overkill for everything, but I am a millionaire so I can afford it, plus the editor to edit all the family video footage

Vicuna sweater / overcoat.





It just seems so warm and soft.




At $26,000~, it's out of my price range. Most likely forever.

That $200K watch someone posted in an another thread recently. Tracks the planets' movements n shit.


I came in here to post this! It’s gorgeous and each star is individually hand painted to mimic the hemisphere of choice. I love Van Cleef and Arpel so much.
