Bring it on!

Post by constant change » April 6th 2020, 7:44pm

After reading the recommendations for new members, I feel moved to say bring it on!

A little info about me:
I live in Las Vegas, but don’t work in gaming, hospitality, or any other fields you might associate with the city. Those of us who have lived here a while think “Vegas” sounds like nails on a chalkboard. Do people refer to Angeles, Diego, York, or Antonio? You can imagine my dismay that the newbies who established a hockey team here decided they’d be “Vegas Knights” instead of “Las Vegas Knights.”
When it comes to watches, my taste has changed from quartz to vintage to modern automatics. I like just about any style, as long as it’s auto, has a sapphire crystal, and has a case between 38 and 45mm. More specifically, divers between 40 and 45mm, and non-divers between 38 and 42mm. I buy and sell way too often, particularly since I usually buy new. I also have a tendency to regret parting with a watch and buy another of the same model. Sometimes that cycle continues, which is not the best financial policy. I keep my watch collection small, varying from six to eight at any given time. My current list is:
3 Armand Nicolet M02 Dates: white/silver, blue, and gray dials.
Maurice LaCroix Pontos 41mm, gray dial.
Eterna Eternity auto, silver dial.
Zelos Swordfish, ice blue.
Nodus Retrospect II, salmon sky.
I also have a Tissot titanium quartz I bought in 1995 and an Eco-Drive (sapphire crystal) chronograph that I don’t think of as part of my collection, just watches I have. I bought the Tissot on my honeymoon in Jamaica, so I’ll never part with it, even though I don’t wear it very often.

So in the spirit of the recommendations I read, please feel free to mock, ridicule, or otherwise insult me!

Welcome, goddamn it! Boy, I really wish I could find an Armand Nicolet automatic=date for sale!!
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

I don't know that this thing of ours is really for you as you seem quite picky and I don't see how you could possibly find enough to pick from to keep you interested in a hobby with such constricted choices to select from to begin with, further limited by your schtick with the size and the shape and the movement, and the strap was a 1/1000th narrow, and sew on and sew Fourth. But I guess you're welcome to take a shot at it if you want and you might as well have a good time for as long as you're at it, so, welcome to Watchlords; the joint's more fun than a human being should be allowed to have.

Hey there from NYC. This is a place where you don't have to mince words.

Welcome, sir.

Now that's a proper intro, even though you could have included a watch pic or two. But hell, that's forgiveable considering the current Rona shenanigans.

A standard issue Hidey-Ho!

If you’re in a casino that has a hotel, and you aren’t staying there, rent a room and consider it an expensive pay toilet. It’s worth every penny.

Shouldn’t it have been you who asked Biglove’s question? Although my answer to him does kind of prove your point.
