Thread: Heads up, there's a new review....here.

  1. #1

    Heads up, there's a new review....here.

    I love reviews, everything about them, but especially loving care taken over some of them.

    Sometimes, when put in their proper place, they miss out on some of the apprecation they deserved, so I thought a thread giving pointers towards a reviews would be handy: they would be in their appropriate forum, and yet still get some passing traffic.

    The one which made me think this was Tribe125's review of his Datejust: http://www.intlwatchleague.com/showt...-Buys-Datejust

    Alan - what's wrong with you - you know my wife barred me from the Rolex forum - I do hope you were going to let me know.

    Thank you for sharing, Der Amf - nice idea to post links to good threads that others may have missed. To avoid cross-posting though best to keep the discussion in said thread - I'm going in now.

    Good review.
    Well, let's just say I will be in BIG trouble if I purchase one.

    Here's a text I sent to my wife while in Vegas last year (or the year before -it all blurs):



    A $30k plus watch...I told her not to worry I can make payments like it was a car. I really had her believe I pulled the trigger on it, and she was quite miffed when I got home, lol.

    But did you tell her you lost the watch gambling when you got home without a new watch on your wrist?

    I was scrolling through the Affordables Forum, feeling fairly sure I had seen a review or two there too deserving of a little shot of publicity and there, the penultimate thread on the last page, was this, another long thoughtful review from Tribe125!

    Not a review exactly, but my thoughts on the Orient M-force diver and Seiko SARB035 are up in the Japanese forum
