Just happened a couple days ago, right? Haha

I have it on good authority that many, many brands are hiking prices this weekend. According to my European AD, Rolex and JLC are both increasing 10%. Other brands are going to have similar moves.

Thus, I'm ready to pull the trigger on the JLC. I guess 15% off MSRP is a screaming deal in light of the coming price hike.

Quoted for truth. I'm not sure how I went from "Just kopped in December and no more kopping to save up for grail" to kopping again in January. It's terrible, I'm thinking 'one more for the road'

I hear February, so, go go go.

I'm very tempted but two (relatively) large watch purchases in the span of a few months might be dangerous for my health at home.

Such a classic. Congratulations.

Why I've still never bought one remains a mystery.

I guess cause I'm waiting for a nice vintage one to just show up on my doorstep some day.

SEL, lug holes, tritium. The exact one I wanted!


I like how you've consolidated there.

Especially since it's precisely the watch of your desires.....must be gratifying!

I'M GETTING THE FEVER LOL.


Oh, and Dino....I'm also getting my popcorn ready for your new Rolex pics....
post #40363 of 48312
Thanks Keith. I'm enjoying it immensely and it keeps growing on me. I think it's because it looks like a real 'instrument', not 'just' a watch. And they are pretty common pre-owned and so a good price. I think one of the best value watches around.

+ 1 for Dino Rolex pics. Congrats on that.

Dino, congrats on the incoming GMT! Looking forward to seeing it.

OK — I'm definitely keeping the stickers on the purple one, right?

Q&D after another successful hunt:



Hey, I can quit whenever I want... shog[1].gif

Hahahaha!  If only there had been a grey dial up there...full set?

 

I have something of a quandary: I ordered something, they took ages to ship, decided to get something even better, cancelled the first order.  The confirmed the cancellation...then discovered they'd already shipped without telling me, and sacked my card.

 

The original order was not sanctioned by my beloved.  So, do I wring my hands in shame, and return the first one when it arrives?  Or keep it and cancel the second, bigger purchase?  Or...well...we know what "or" is, don't we?

 

I hate you people.

 

In another news, I have a new title.
