Thread: And what did you buy today ?

    And what did you buy today ?

    Thought this would be a great thread.

    47.00 USD
    Needs some TLC to bring it back to life, but for 47.00 & a trip to my watch guy what the heck





    Let's see yours

    nice 70's diver mate

    venus, passion's rockets ,sets afire gentle hearts that music doth inspire,
    through the joys of dance and last play
    leading them to love the sweetest way.

    Your purchase looks more fun though

    Very nice, William! I really have a soft spot for those old divers. Looking forward to seeing it after it's all cleaned up. The only thing I bought today was a bag of Cheezies.

    Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
