Anyone else tempted to put something like a Mossimo shirt front and center so your thriftsmasee gets nervous when they open it? Or send a package full of crap one day early?

The following is just my opinion so FWIW.

 

Look at what Omega pocket watches are bringing on the bay. The market has been flooded with fakes from eastern Europe. Unless it's solid gold, I don't think you'll make your money back. I'd stay away from pocket watches unless they're a really rare or famous brand and a desirable movement. The engraving on the back, while nice just brings the price that you can get for it down. All this is not applicable if its for yourself of course.

 

And again, I really love Omega and their movements. It's an under appreciated brand that Swatch has not marketed as well as they should have. That's starting to change and they're bringing some really nice models to the table and kicking up their marketing and pricing strategy game up. I'd say that's why the used prices on their vintage wrist watches have started going up. Way too many private sellers and thrift stores price swiss watches based on some perceived idea they have because of name recognition, that's why the price on the watch you saw was so high. I personally would not be interested in that unless you got it for at most a franklin.

In my workshop there are another 4 boxes, including 1 box of pure NWT Zegnas.


These are all mostly resale ties. Mostly true thrift, some discounted. And I haven't even photographed my personal collection. peepwall%5B1%5D.gif

Nope, my "thriftsmasee" is getting exactly what he asked for front. It just might be fake. :devil:

Seriously, though. $1200? Ten people actually watching? What gives?

Got myself all psyched up to take pictures. After two, I knocked over my backlight and it shattered everywhere. So all you get are these two coats.

One purchase today.

I have wanted to find a pair of dirty bucks so these should fill that void and they seem to be quite comfortable so far.
