This watch expectation is ruining me on other “value watches” like Seiko, etc... as I expect this will fill that void of the grab-and-go beater completely.

Is it a 100 limited run?


And yes Wu- I’m thinking you’re right.

Don’t worry, you can probably still get 88 which I think George Carlin said represented two fat lesbians. Again, strangely appropriate.

Placing order #007 from the spymaster was good for a chuckle.

Oooh some ARES swag! Some others here can prolly speak to it more - if they’re inclined - but that ARES stamp is a very accurate and faithful “homage” to the legitimate stamps and markings used - at one time - for the marking, handling, and dissemination of CLASSIFIED materials. I thought it added a nice touch; a little Easter egg for those playing along at home.

And yes: welcome to the ARES family.

Shit, now I feel like just I gave up some classified info :shock:

Regardless, pretty cool. Was wondering about the stamp.

I did wonder a bit how those would be viewed passing through the mail.

I used to wrap Christmas presents every year using CLASSIFIED burn bags, and everyone just thought I used shitty paper. I’d just sit there - with a little scotch and a simmering hatred - with the fanatically liberal in-laws and watch them tearing CLASSIFIED burn bags off of their presents. It was so heart warming.

I was going to package the watches in this wrapping but then I couldn’t send them to guys I used to work with or they’d just go into the incinerator unopened which, btw, isn’t covered under the warranty.
