: great patina on that sub!Dino
: even 12 years ago, I'd 15% is damn good on sports models from a Rolex AD....you obviously got the volume discount!Frilly
: great shoes, great watch.
Here's a pic of my Seamaster, hanging out pre-game at one of the "Meccas" of college football....any of the SEC guys know this one (?) ....the cup is normally yellow (hint), but they were doing the breast cancer awareness thing...
Here's a dead giveaway LOL:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
While in the region, I also stopped into this little watch store in the ATL, (I know, I know)....
Mall cop actually got mad at me for taking that picture for some reason. But would you believe I actually had a nice experience?
Sales lady there was quite helpful, if not super-informed. She let me try on another
black faced diver's watch, dare I say a grail piece-- that I really need
, like I need a hole in the head.
This big-a$$ thing:
You can't really have too many divers, right? Even at 45mm?
I've had a watch crush on the 50 Fathoms for a long, long time....but still haven't scratched that itch. Maybe someday *sigh*. Retail price is almost criminal, but I got the feeling a discount could be arranged.
Finish on this thing is off the chain, people. And I don't need to tell you all about the Cousteauness of it.
Tried it on bracelet also (it's quite heavy, solid) but think I would prefer the sailcloth strap if I ever plunge.
I was also given one of those nice, bound "catalogs" that's more like a book, which BlancpaiN does so well. Goes on the shelf with my other watch books and magazines, etc.
A pleasant little visit, all in all. Was also looking at some nice IWCs but didn't ask her to pull any out of the case....the hand-wound Portofino 8 days is still growing on me.
And before I left Lenox Square, I had to shoot one more pic...think of it as an early Halloween scare....ha ha ha *Vincent Price laugh*....Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
