Newbie Shopping for a Rolex

Post by koimaster » March 12th 2021, 12:04pm

Here's the extent of my relationship with watches: As a kid, I had a Snoopy Tennis Action watch, the one where his front leg is the hour hand, the racket is the minute hand, and a tennis ball is the seconds hand. I wanted it so badly. Then childhood passed, and it disappeared. That was 40 years ago. I haven't worn a watch since.

I do have an old dead watch from an old dead San Francisco men's store, still sitting in a drawer. Some guy I went on maybe 1 ½ dates with in 1999 gave it to me, very unromantically.

Ha, I'm still on a AD waiting list for a OP.

Added some coin & purchased a lovely Glashutte Original instead and couldn't be happier.

Woman goes to jewellery store, tries on watches. Wastes salesman's time. Doesn't buy anything. Leaves jewellery store.

Painful even to skim-read.
