I guess "others" could be read to mean all others rather than some others. rolleyes.gif

The interweb clearly doesn't do nuance well...it is, afterall, a series of rubes.

Also, true story:

My other money sink hobby is Lego. Rare, old, out of production sets often command prices many, many multiples of their original retail prices. So there's this guy on a Lego forum where I hang out and receive enabling of a different sort (the quantum money involved is of a magnitude somewhat less than on here but they take up that other scarce and valuable good, real estate) who will always chime in and say "yeah I have multiple copies of that" and other similar remarks but never actually show us anything.

I later found out he was good for his word and had a huge attic full of Lego. He was just of a somewhat less tech savvy generation and had no idea how nor inclination to take pictures and post them on the Internet.

What, there's money in old lego? I've got a tonne of the stuff at my parents' place - c late 70s/early 80s. Sadly no boxes, instructions, but literally thousands of bricks.

That's your entire sig!

Feeling narcissistic today during a long conference call, so I photographed my writing surface (Rhodia meeting book), watch (Rolex DSSD DBlue) and fountain pen (Nakaya Dorsal Fin v2 in Heki-Tamenuri (Urushi lacquer with green base and brown finish)).

You might also check out HQ Milton.

I've only heard good things, (never dealt directly) but they usually have some good inventory of old Pepsi GMTs.

ROTFL dopey.

You think I could fit a spare watch strap in there, so I can change them on the fly!?

Oh and a RO is in the photo to try to keep this last limited edition post on point.  Sorry not a great photo but I was in a hurry this morning.

(Watch ain't bad either). LOL.

Then, I happened by a Rolex dealer and popped in to take a look see and they had a BLNR available.

Crapcrapcrapcrapcrap. Now I know what you guys have been going on about.


Yes! The BLNR is definitely the flavor of the month.

And I don't mean that in a derogatory way whatsoever.

The recent attention / focus here is quite well-deserved, IMO.

Also isn't it time for someone to come in and bitch about the number of Rolex posts?

Probably overdue, in fact.

Grumpy Rolex-hater showing up in 3....2....1.....

Thanks Weinerdog. All I need is another distraction (closing my office door...)
post #40704 of 48312

I posted about twelve pictures of a Longines.  I'd better go out quietly and shoot myself.

At least wait until watch number 2 arrives...then let your girlfriend decide whether to be involved in the shooting.  ;)

post #40706 of 48312

Haha...genuine LOL, thanks Dino.

 

2, yes.  And possibly 3.  I dare not mention 3...

That's great - do they really call them Weinerdogs in the US? Here it's sausage dog, but sausage doesn't have quite the same slang meaning over here as I believe weiner does there.

Yup. Weinerdog here. Or just Hot Dog.
post #40710 of 48312
I collect weinerdogs (note the avatar) watches and now shoes, it seems. I should find something less expensive to collect. Like stamps.

Nah.
