    Put A Fork in 2014: What Did You Get, What Did You Sell

    For anyone who is done buying and selling this year, what did you get; what did you sell?

  2. #2
    Bought: (1) a shiny Beijing (2&3) a pair of vintage of Soviet dress watches (4) an orange Swatch (5) another vintage manual Seiko

    Sold: a quartz Seiko chrono

    Received and sold: a White Pilot

    Bought and put on sale: an f72 ST5

    Put into storage: a Rodina, a Hugo Boss quartz

    Gave away in giveaways: two Shanghais (one auto, one manual)

    Found in storage, wore a bit, put back into storage, took out of storage again, and generally got confused by: 1920s silver-cased manual the size of a thimble

    Sold, none. But then again I still own every watch I've bought in 52 years.
    Bought. None.
    Bought straps, loads of the buggers.
    Was awful close to buying my planned 5513 but the missus big birthday sneaked up on me and the result is that the entire fund vanished in a blink on this

    I'm not done, yet - got my eye on a Christmas present to myself I realize that sounds a little sad; but my family doesn't have that sort of money to spend on gifts !
    I'm justifying it as a reward to myself for giving up the cigarettes. I told myself I'd have to have quit for a year before patting myself on the back and treating myself, but this one is too good to let slip. I've not had a cigarette since March 16th, and I'm unlikely to ever go back to them; so I'll forgive myself for cheating a bit
