With the new WL forum darling being the bronze combat sub, what were past ones and what happened to them?


In a drawer somewhere or the attic or...........

I remember the Accutron VX-200 being a big hit on the forums for a while.

Either the 3 hand or the chrono, they were both hot for a while.

Didn't jump on one while they were coming out - now priced fairly high if you can find one.

I don't even see them being posted in the WRUW section

I'm monsterless. Should probably address that at some point in the future. No forum darling list is complete without the BASM accompanied by Conjurer input.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.

Interestingly, I'm Monsterless as well, although I've been eying the new orange Supermonster with the 6R15 movement.

Another forum darling from Way Back was the Zodiac Oceanaire, which was indeed a pretty damned good watch.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
