Well hello.. New hobby? Sardonic Humor?

Postby Lost » September 8th 2016, 5:24am

I think I found both here!
I only (so far) have cheap watches. 53 years old, and only have worn nothing worth more than 100 bucks on my wrist. I found this forum looking for something better via a pilot forum, and really like the word "uncensored" in the description!

Being a pilot, I am interested in dual time zone, but other than that, simple. My favorite watch so far is a (kicks the gravel) ahem.... a Timex.

However, the one I have has a resin band, that was made just for that watch, and is IMPOSSIBLE to replace. Sooner or later I know I'll come close, but now looking for a new watch. I am intrigued by the samsung G3, but really don't want something else to charge in my life.

Anywho, I enjoy looking around here, learning how crappy Stauer and Invicta are, and hopefully will settle on something that flips my flopper.

Uncensored? Well, yes - yes I do believe that is an applicable description...if you think of a trip to Donnybrook Fair or a gentlemen's appointment with the late John L. Sullivan as uncensored. Despite the lack of a referee or rules as they are commonly understood, cool heads eventually prevail - and, once the blood is mopped up, a better group of fellows will ne'er be found upon the interwebz.

Welcome, pilot - although with the moniker Lost, I'd be somewhat reluctant to book your services....

Welcome aboard Lost. We've had a recent bout of Timex affection here.. There are lots of nice watches under $100 to be had.

My next one has a budget of about $400 or so. I intend to run it by you all to make sure I don't screw the pooch.

Thanks all!

Just what we need...another joystick jockey. You'd have thought the Mort experience would have warned us off...oh well.

You might think you're being clever and funny, but your sardine-based humour isn't welcome here. It's offensive, tasteless and racist. That said, if you can keep your anti-fish stance to yourself and focus on watches, you might get along here okay.

Welcome Lost. Being the cheapest bastard in this bunch a hundred bucks ain't nothing to sneeze at. I've been lucky to find a couple nice watches for less than that.

Welcome. Here's some semi-rules to help you get along here:

1. Stay away from the pine barrens.
2. Get a good avatar; Conjurer has the best ones at the lowest prices.
3. Don't be a stalagmite and just stand there. DO something.
4. Get a camera. Show us pictures of your watches. Or your sardines. We don't really care which, but most of us have learned of the natural efficacy of telling time with watches. And all of us smell better for all of that.
5. Develop a thick armor and an even thicker sense of humor.
6. Post early and often, but have a point when you do, or you'll experience the incredibly sharp tongues of our resident Great Thinkers and Suave Bastards.
7. Don't be a dick, a turd or a know-it-all, or Rocco Pesticciano will smack you in the old cazini with a tape-wrapped aluminum basebawl bat. He's already pretty pissed off because his doctor told him no more linguini, veal or bread pudding. Poor guy's gotta find entertainment when and where he can...
8. DON'T PISS THE ASSHATS OFF. We got a new 500 lb. bag of lime this morning, and the de Soto is gassed up and ready. (BTW, Conj; I hadda take $15 outta petty cash so as to fix the fuel gauge. Vito Guglielmi says "Hi," by the way.)

Got questions? See rules #7 and #8.

See 'ya aroun,' Lawsty... :lol:

You can do a filtered search on Jomashop, just put GMT in the search column and then filter it down to the price range you are looking for...shopping is almost half the fun.
Here's another one, Tissot GMT 64% off:

^^^That's some funny shit. :)

Here is literally the watch De Jour. All the reading on the forum got me thinking 'watches', and went and found the one from my father in law. He was a railroad man, been gone now 22 years, and the watch prolly dead a few years before that. Went to wally world and got a cell for it just to see if it would still work. It does. I like the simplicity, no extraneous bullshit, BUT: In low light, the damn hands blend into the face, and of course no 2nd time zone hand. It seems the tritium (or whatever makes it glow) stopped triating (my term) a while ago too. The scratches in the crystal don't look nearly as bad to the naked eye.
