Swag-Fest 7! Thanksgiving Swag!
Casio G-Shock--and who doesn't like Gees? This one is ref. #GA-400CS, using module 5398. It does many things. 51.5mm across, 53mm lug-to-lug, 18.5mm thick. It shows very little wear, and comes with box and some papers. A very unique color combination between case and strap. Cool negative display and analogue hands. You wear this watch to the right places, you'll get plenty of trim.
Orient Dual Time:
I don't believe I've ever seen this model from the Big O before; it's very funky and 1970's-ish. A combo dial, the top digital (!) automatic, the bottom quartz. Only 31.5mm across, lug-to-lug and surprisingly wearable 49.5mm, 13.7mm thick, with 22mm lugs. Comes on aftermarket leather strap (with an extra one thrown in by donor.) Box and papers. Wearing this one with get you some fur-burger, I guarantee.
We're getting into the Way-Back Machine with this one; this was back when VEs were cool, relatively inexpensive, and actually made with Russian watch movements. This one has the Very Popular non-quickset date, along with a cool AM/PM window, and even a super cool bund-leather strap, which should remind Mort of what it was like before he started drinking Sanka. 40mm across, 42mm with crown, 48mm lug-to-lug, lug width 18mm, and a slim 12mm thick. Beria might very well have been wearing a watch like this when he got whacked in the basement of the Lubyanka slammer. Comes with box and papers.
Also included with each watch will be a special piece of Thanksgiving swag:
A very cool 2015 Cartier watch catalogue, written in Chinese or Japanese, but with plenty of fine pictures to rope your kangaroo to:
A piece of swag you'll actually use, a rare and fine Ball hat:
And a CD of music with a fish on it:
OK, so here're the particulars: This auction will run through Thanksgiving weekend, ending on Cyber Monday, 27 November, at 8:00PM Pacific time. The swag will be assigned thusly: top price wins the hat, next price wins the Cartier book, and the lowest priced winner gets the CD, and be fucking happy to get it, too. If there's a tie in final prices, lots will be drawn. Remember, 75% of the proceeds of this auction goes to help sick kids at St. Jude Hospital, the rest goes to keep the lights on around here. So bid high, bid often, and have a great Thanksgiving!
