Something is very wrong

Something is very wrong

Postby JAS1125 » January 12th 2018, 1:21pm

Got several Amazon gift cards for Christmas, along with cash points, and I don't see any watch that strikes my fancy.

After all these years have I finally hit saturation point?

You're fine, you may just be in a lull. Happens to me sometimes, but I always snap out of it. Just save your cards and something will just grab your attention when you least expect it.

There is plenty at Amazon watch wise. Most of it is not best price and the one's I want, well, that's about 20 years worth of gift cards I am going to need.

Ten of these:

Then sell 'em for $60 each at WIT, and with the proceeds, buy a whole bunch of Aunt Peg porn.

Does that thing actually say "Wiss Made" at the six? I looked at two models and I think it actually does.

And I think it's the same in each model color. I'd report that to the FH, but technically, I've heard the Wiss can build a spaceship in your back yard using only Estes model parts and your mom's underwear.

Just get drunk and surf the web. You will find something you think you like.

That's what I normally do.

Funny that would you post a Hamilton, Russ. The only Hamilton I have is my dad's from the late 50's and I've been looking at new models lately

Maybe, I certainly have. I still crave a vintage Heuer of some sort but I'm so far out of that market I may as well crave a lottery win, chances of achieving either are similar. Everything else is low-cost Chinese made but with a poor-value price tag, and/or derivative of what I have, or had and then sold.

I have been learning to refinish watches recently, without fucking them up altogether, so it's ebay and crossed fingers for me...

Hammies are a good choice. If I had less self-restraint I might have developed a Hammy addiction
