Can someone make a meme with that "Guys literally only want one thing..." and the response is a steel Rolex?

Then venessian can make some jokes about it that no one gets.

Foo can say it only takes a couple months to get one if you are a big timer like he is (but he only owns a mutilated Daytona to my knowledge--and an overpolished Patek).

George Red can post pictures of the entire current Rolex catalog that he appears to own.

Dino can post all of the most desirable Rolex watches from the last 25 years, all of which he owns, all of which are in like new (better than mint) condition despite the fact that he wears them regularly (I think he is a wizard--Dino would never contemplate buying a polishing cloth like Foo).

radicaldog can say something completely unrelated to anything and start a new watch thread for more of the same inane internet blather (that thread is garbage by the way).

9thsymph will continue to be an agreeable poster as usual but someone else will be an ass on purpose or not.

am55 will impart real cultural knowledge intermittently as well as posting cool independents.

And we will occasionally be graced by Riva, the true king of the thread.

A few bits by Texasmade, Ambulance Chaser, RSS, bdavro, and LAGuy among others in between without much traction.

Then a short intermission of Hodinkee bashing or Speedy masturbation.

This is the way.

That would be an interesting discussion. Ten years ago you bought an Invicta on credit to look cool, and now you've got a very nice and very expensive collection. I wonder, though, about the journey in between. When and why did you start getting more "serious" about watches? What was the evolution like? Any big regrets, missteps, or interesting stories along the way?

FYI I'm interested in anyone's response--your post was just the one that made me think of it.
my dad. The MilSub I have was his. He never really viewed it as a “luxury watch”, sort of a beater believe it or not.

He wore Cartier and Omega. So I’ve always been aware of quality timepieces and when my financial situation allowed me to indulge my interest, that’s when I bought my first watch. I’m not a collector per se. I really only have 4 watches, but I do enjoy them.

Is there any other way? I mean, people are busy!

Sorry missed that one earlier

"He has everything and he can do anything. He has an original Bosch on the wall of his living room, and he likes to sit and look at it and sip fine wines and listen to chamber music [...]. His is the life of conspicuous consumption we were all taught to strive for until, a few years ago, simplicity came in. He never got the message; he is an anachronism." - Ebert

How it all started:


I see perhaps mistakenly a strange ebb and flow with their work, in tense years (the beginning above, or 2009 with the UR-CC1) the watches are creative and risky, with a good dose of design "mistakes"; in comfortable years they adopt something more standardised, timeless but also with that soulless feel of that peculiar globalist aesthetic best found in the F1 industry (the UR-202 is probably the worst by adding diamonds which feel as much at home on an Urwerk as an Urwerk would feel on Foo's wrist).

Yes, but maybe slightly more derogatory in the US (same with CUNextTuesday).

"twat", as you wrote it: yes (but these days even more harsh in the USA as @Newcomer wrote).

"TWAT", as the acronym of this thread's title (StyFo loves its acronyms): not at all.
