San Martin Quartet...I'm sure this'll be kinda boring and repetitious...

Post by AlbertaTime » April 30th 2024, 7:32pm

...but I haven't gone on a watch buying spree like this for a few years.

I mean, yeah, an occasional new one will waltz in, maybe while I travel (but most of those are gifts). And otherwise, except for one Timex or a gift, anything I did get was around $100. So this was different for me, Total for all four? $835 USD / two were flawless, but second hand.

And I'm having fun shooting, so please bear with me :-)

If you ever decide to sell the beige dial one pm me.

The do a good job on the beads in their BOR bracelets. Very beady.
Understood. I haven't sold a watch so far as I can remember, so don't please hold your breath :-) But, yeah, I like it too, so I understand: you called dibs Image

And, yep--the bracelets are commendable. The retail prices for the BOR bracelets they sell aren't particularly low, but it's kinda they know what they got. The beads are individual, the bracelet floats on the skin like mercury on a dime, and the glide-lock clasps up the ante for the competition, right outta the gate. Great bracelets.

I like all of them! Congratulations AT those are all great choices. In this hobby I like how you can get a 20 dollar watch or a million dollar watch and still have a joy in them. Sorry old ocean might have gone a little bit soft in his years of collecting.

100% agree.

1. A thing of beauty is a joy forever
2. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Had lots of fun in the higher end of this interest. Now firmly entrenched in lower end with more reserved tastes. Maybe even more enjoyable at this juncture, finding the beauty in the mundane and everyday

My next acquisition, if there is to be one, is the sub 400 USD (and falling, thanks to yen drop) Citizen NB1050-59H.

Just the thing for the shuffleboard court, I figure. Duratec stuff on these lower end Citizens is amazing.
