looking like bam!chairdance without the facial hair
Yeah, a lot of what I've seen doen't suit me. Massive jackets, massive pants, cropped pants with boots... It would make me look shorter and thinner than I already am, which is not what I want.
Mostly I want to bum around castles in Europe wearing unstructured rumpled wool suits.
This all makes sense, thanks for clearing that up guys. I hadn't realized about the service policy. And mer, I've set aside money for a busted submariner. I've done that for a few years now, although I only casually look. It's actually just a sort of rainy day fund for a few specific non-clothing vanity items if I come across them, since I would hate to miss out on something because I didn't have the cash handy. It's money I put aside after selling my MB 190e 2.3-16v Cosworth (always a mouthful) to get similar beautiful and rare but useless items. That said, I still wouldn't want to use it on a 4.5k watch nor would I want a Sub that clean (not rare enough :-P )
First of all, sorry for cluttering up the thread with non WAYWT posts (I guess), but you can get a non-sub Rollie for $3k in quality used condition and beat it up yourself (I like Explorer I's), but there're plenty of really good alternatives. Good luck man.
