Now, back to watches.  Those of you who post in this thread and who have watches are leaving a a very special legacy for your descendants.  All of your watches will last beyond the end of time, and for many future generations your descendants will wear your watches and remember you.

They will thank you when, while wearing a watch that you bought, the watch is noticed by someone, so they get the job or meet the girl, or whatever happens that might not have happened if they were not wearing the watch.

The next time that you see a watch that you want, don't hesitate.  Buy it.  It's a good investment, and you want to be sure to leave enough watches for all your descendants, because you don't want any of them not to have a watch and to not remember you.

(You can save enough money to buy any watch that you want by not eating too much food, and, as an additional benefit of not eating too much food, your clothes will always fit you, and you won't have to buy new clothes.)


Legendary!

Is it the Reverso Grande series or the traditional Reverso?

This really sounds like the quintessential tag-line for SF!

 

Someone (or perhaps all of us) should adopt it as their/our signatures.

I'm going to have to skip a lot of meals to gather the money for my grails AP Royal Oak 15400 and A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 moonphase!

Well gentlemen, I must confess... sorry to have misled you but the woman whom I have hitherto referred to as Mrs. Hedonist is not, in fact, Mrs. Hedonist.

 

However...

 

 

I can finally confirm that she'd like to be.

All joking aside, congrats on the engagement, man. Well done, sir! biggrin.gif

Nice work BH!

 

And what a great page of TWAT history there.  Makes me feel like buying a watch.
