Re: The state of the Micro watch industry

Interesting sales model, but making a new product difficult to get isn't very appealing in the long run. Unless of course your product has been endlessly hyped by the press. Like a Hermes Kelly Bag. I suppose a somewhat similar model worked for a number of years for Yao, but it appears he's losing h...

I had a boss in Singapore who had an Omega GMT. One day I asked what time zone he had it set to. He responded saying he never knew what that extra hand was for. Moron.

Re: Bought a buckle, threw it away

I've done it too. I was having dental work done and they gave me a temporary denture which I hated. Tossed it out in a pizza box. Probably drunk.

Re: Milk, toilet paper, Patek...

This is weird shit. I've seen threads before of Rolex and at the other end of the scale, Invicta being sold in Walmart/budget supermarkets. This doesn't happening the UK, in fact this would be front page news. I don't know of any supermarket in the Uk that would even consider selling a watch, not e...
