My Beater

Post by investigator » March 1st 2013, 2:50pm

Had this watch for about a year. It's my work watch. It came with a stainless stretch bracelet which I destroyed so I put a nato on it. It's taken quite a bit of abuse from constant impact vibrations to paint and putty. So far so good. $25, can't go wrong. Old camera seems to work nicely still too.

A bit of background about this shot. I figured it would be nice for me, as a newcomer, to post a photo of a watch I own. I wanted it to make a statement with a bit of added humor and this is what I came up with. I really like how it turned out. I had to dig in my closet for that bronze middle finger lighter and its a nod to you fucking haters. Cheers!

I only just noticed his new signature:

Why, thank you, Toby. What a gracious complement!

Nice looking watch save for the ill fitting strap. I guess if Bond could do it then so can you.


Ya, it's just something I had laying around. It keeps it on my wrist and that's enough for this guy. Not going to win any fashion or style points but it works.

Here it is with the original strap: amazon.com/Timex-T2N302-Classics-White-Bracelet/dp/B003UMDUMK

I sometimes work in my smoking jacket. Ya, the Timex is in pretty good shape. Here's its predecessor:

Taking it out of the drawer to take a picture, I noticed it's actually working. I say that because the Timex replaced this watch I had thought was busted or needed a new battery. I assumed it might be busted because, at that time, the battery in it was a week old before it stopped and I didn't want to get rid of it before I tried a new battery but I never got around to it. Anyway, to my surprise, it's still ticking, but the chrono function doesn't work anymore. Nice, now I have a rotation of beaters.

Well worth a bump.
I wish all the extra funnies were bumped on occasion so I can get my laughs.
