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

On a more serious note, where does one cross the line between sharing the pleasure of their collection and showing off?
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.post #40699 of 483122/6/15 at 11:08ampost #40700 of 483122/6/15 at 11:20amQuote:

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)).post #40701 of 483122/6/15 at 11:21amQuote:Originally Posted by aleksandr

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.Quote:Originally Posted by dopey
Small movements in big cases bother me because it seems like a break-down in integrated design. [...] If manufacturers are going to insist on big cases and little movements, they should at least make a little door in the back so you can access the extra room in the case and keep extra paperclips or diamonds, or even spare change.
You think I could fit a spare watch strap in there, so I can change them on the fly!?Quote:Originally Posted by Dino944
Apparently my wife brought a limited edition yogurt into our home ! I'm not sure if we should call Sotheby's or bring it to an authorize frozen yogurt dealer to see what they will offer us for it.
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.Quote:Originally Posted by aleksandr
So I went to check out Pepsis and Cokes at a couple of pre-owned places. Not bad, though some were pretty pricey for what they were. Apparently there is still a healthy demand for GMTs.
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.Quote:
Probably overdue, in fact.

At least wait until watch number 2 arrives...then let your girlfriend decide whether to be involved in the shooting.post #40706 of 483122/6/15 at 12:24pmpost #40707 of 483122/6/15 at 12:28pmpost #40708 of 483122/6/15 at 12:28pmpost #40709 of 483122/6/15 at 12:32pmpost #40710 of 483122/6/15 at 12:52pm
