New watch? Soitenly.

New watch? Soitenly.

Postby foghorn » November 2nd 2017, 8:33am

Since every new watch purchase is ultimately someone else's fault I blame Big Love and Rusty for this one. Both have recently posted photos of Certina watches and,while I was aware of the brand, I never paid it no never mind.Until a couple days ago when I saw a "Certified Pre-Owned " model at Ashford. It was described as being a store model in pristine condition. I don't know about the store model part but if this ain't new then Bob's not my damn uncle,I'll tell you that rite now!
At 39 mm it is a perfect size for the style. I figured at a tad over 3 bills it was a steal. (Actually it's all titanium LOLOlolOLOlooloLOL) WR is 100m

Exabihsun back to see the less blurry than the shitty pic ETA 2824. (I check for the ETA hallmark and , lo and behold, it was there. ) Imagine that-NOT a Selitta.

Very nice titanium bracelet,raised sapphire bIlly CrystaL and long saxy lugs!

I took the next picture for posting at WUS when the inevitable "Show your watches on a Granny Smith apple" thread pops up.

Good looking piece, I like the satin/polished look.

Bet the Ti makes a very comfortable wearing watch.

Nice.

THAT is one gorgeous watch, Foggy, especially with that jummy blue dial; it's VERY jummy, and definitely causes stirrings in the old loin tissues, my friend! I just wish it were either an automatic or made with a material with the strength of steel but the weight of aluminum, maybe like titanium? Yeah, that'd be the ticket. Still, it IS a very nice watch... :???:

Great looking watch and a great price.

That Certina makes my dick hard!
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I would wear that one even if it is blue!

39mm seems to be the perfect watch size, not too small and not too large.

+1 for being an ETA also.

Been eyeballin' them Certinas myself. Nice grab! Shocked you picked up a new piece so soon, based on past comments.

I always say I'm done, too, so I go to a freakin' watch show and buy two pieces. I'm so fulla the brown stuff.

Have eyeballed this model for months. Damn, it looks fantastic!

Congrats. Owning two now, I think they are a steal at grey market prices.
