    A day late and a dollar short, again :(

    I've been after a particular watch for some time now and I certainly prefer to avoid MSRP prices when possible. Found one, superb offering, no one else wanted it for several weeks, decided to pull the trigger, sent the private message just to find out IT SOLD THE DAY BEFORE. Ugh.

    bummer....
    hopefully you could get a similar deal in the near future Chuck...


    a friend of mine told me: it is better to get something more expensive than MSRP but you have the money to seal the deal -- than get a deal of a lifetime offer but don't have the fund..

    well, he always do the first part.. and all i got from life is the second part

    Sad times. Will that teach you to make hay while the sun shines and not delay?

    That reminds of a mantra often spoken in my local watch group “better regret after buying than regret not buying”

    It was a smallish sum though, wasn’t it?

    Bummer. As your collective family, so we can be on the lookout for you, care to say which watch you are looking for?
