John, it's great that you've finally met somebody - it's super, it really is - but I still don't give a damn about Stan Beatoff and his stupid wartches.conjurer wrote: ↑November 18th 2021, 11:45pmA year ago, I would have posted that nobody, of any account, really cares anymore about Deep Blew and Stain Betosh. We've moved on, and in This Thing of Ours, let the devil take the hindmost.
Alas, in that time, Seiko, the true maker of affordable sports watches, has so shot itself in the foot over inflated prices, lackluster QC, and, worst of all, making the SKX series into non-divers with non-screw-down crowns, flogged to guys who wear skinny jeans and porkpie hats. When Seiko made a decent watch for next to nothing, you could confront guys who bought Deep Blews and say, why do you want to buy that shit, when you could buy a real sports watch? But, as I say again, alas, no more.
I met up with a fellow salesman from a different store, working with him for the first time in some time, and he was sporting some slightly oversized watch with a name I didn't recognize on the dial with a Miyota 8205 movement, of which he was very proud; he told me, "it's an automatic movement!" which it was. Now, he's a Gen Zer, but not a dolt, like so many of them. He's smart as a whip, and, I have to say, a better salesman than I. In other words, he's one of the up-and-comers, and even wears a necktie to work.
I realized just then that this was one of the new breed, one of the guys who will replace us, as we elderly fucks shuffle off to die in the harness. He would look at the Deep Blews and say, "That's cool!"
So, I suppose, I've mellowed a bit in my dotage. But Stain Betosh is still a creepy motherfucker.
