    Bottom of the Ninth 2014 pick ups

    Anyone else getting any last minute pick ups in? Perhaps taking advantage of a little merry Christmas to me savings that are around right now?

    Decided to get n on the pre-order for CH8 after all. Though I guess this won't be delivered until next summer so maybe it doesn't count


    Took ok advantage of Helson Christmas pricing for an SD42 grey dial


    And fund a deal deal to good to pass up on a Max Bill Chronoscope on mesh


    Technically the Aquadive BS500 is a 2014 pick up, but doesn't look like it will be here before the apple drops

    C'mon. Don't make light of the hot stove league! My Nats just traded an outfield prospect for a SS, and I'm feeling okay about that.

    The Breitling B1 was my last minute pickup a couple of weeks ago.

    Bottom of the Ninth 2014 pick ups

    Just before Thanksgiving (technically the 8th, I guess), I picked up 2 Ebel Sportwave divers (black dial and silver dial) plus an Ebel Classic Hexagon GMT, on black alligator strap (1215880) in the Movado Company Store Thanksgiving sale (almost 80% off).

    I have not worn the Hexagon GMT which Santa will be bringing me as a gift from my wife (yes - I buy the watch, give it to her, she wraps it and gives it back to me)!

    I should adapt that. Maybe I'd end up with less crap that way too!

    Good call (personally speaking) on the Junghans, Laco and Nivrel
