Holiday deals

Postby svaglic » November 30th 2017, 8:25pm

Anyone have any luck in holiday deals? Not me, I was hoping for deals on Mondaine, Zodiac, Rado, Glycine or anything 41mm or below that looked nice. I know what I want, I'm just not seeing it or it is too large for my wrist, like the Alpina Seastrong or a Tissot diver.

I figured out why I am having a tough time lately. When I first got into watches, I had nothing so there was a lot of stuff that I could get. Now that I have most bases covered in movements, dials or design, what will fit in or a color I want seems tough to find. Plus, I'm happy with what I have so it's hard to find stuff come up that keeps that going.

Friends and Family sale at Macy's. 45% off most of the watches. That Citizen Promaster on a steel bracelet felt really good. With the discount it's $70 less than Amazon.

Quite so. Like many of us, I started this Thing of Ours early on, with Seiko and, somewhat later, an Air King. Then I was happy for fifteen or twenty years, and bought a few TeeVee Wartchs. When you take a step down like that, everything is Up.

Our tastes grow. Nothing wrong with that, it's the way things go.

These days I find myself saving my pennies, so when, eventually, that one special piece shows up, I'll pounce. Other than that, I don't wanna spend money to "save" money picking up something I don't really need in the first place.

Today, anyway. :wink:
