Initially, I thought of getting a Tissot Le Locle Powermatic 80, or a Certina DS-2 in full titanium. With my discount, any of the two would be perfectly within range.
However, I swore a sacred oath to not let the SG have a penny of my earnings. I mean, I can retail their stuff. That's the nature of my work. But when it comes to my hard-earned money, I won't have the Swiss Mr. Creosote straight outta Monty Python to have a penny of it. Fuck them.
So, I did what I usually do, the thing that made me who I am in the first place. I am the Vintage Bloke. I went vintage. Reached out to a buddy and fellow collector, and the result is on my way to me now. As a part-dough, part-barter, I've traded in my Moeris GSTP. Watches and money changed owners, and how soon will I get to wear the new one depends on the prowess of the Royal Mail, and - Jove have mercy - the Polish Snail Mail.
If you wanna guess what it is, you're free to do so. With an exception for one - I've told ya, so don't spoil the fun of guessing
