    Free Stuff

    If people are so inclined, feel free to add to this thread, if you want to give watch related stuff away, if that seems like a good idea...

    --

    To start....

    I have a very watch-addicted friend who often gives me things because he doesn't want to throw them away, and doesn't want the hassle of selling. Sometimes I sell or give away the watches he gives me (as someone here recently discovered) but I have no idea what to do with these brand catalogs. They are very high quality, two hardback, full color, designed to be in retail shops to browse. I will happily send one or all to anyone - for free if in USA as I can use Book Rate postage. To European friends, shipping would probably cost too much for the content, alas.

    Books are Longines, Zenith, Breguet, and distributor Westime. I also have an Oris book I got at Toppers that I don't need. Here are the first four:

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    I think I have a taker for some or all of these. Unless another person chimes in, I will send them all to boatme99.

    Stay tuned, because I might also have a few watches to give away (if anyone needs a quartz beater.)

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Very generous of you, Ismy.

    I believe cn22/23 forms are not needed within the EU. Are they?

    well some places yes like ireland one sides fine the other needs a form and they do it in euro's and you have to declare it too .. take France I think it was did a give away and the post for that one was like a tenner and the prize was like worth a fiver felt like just sending them the money instead thinking about it never heard if they even got it or not

    just know in the uk can be a large letter and be a couple of quid and quick and simple thats how I like it

    Yes, there's the monetary issues - Euro/Pound. And, as we all know, things may become even trickier.

    yeah think the post office converted it as they did it so I paid in pounds / but was sent in euro's or something .

    mean irelands a real tricky one got friend over there that regular crossed the boarder for there shopping the prices and easy of getting stuff is really hard one side it seems .

    and I like to think a free gift means a free gift but same time not wanting to pay an arm and leg in post thou

    That's a really classic Seiko, ISMY. I hope you get a taker! I'll be adding some more quartzies here, but not nearly as WIS-friendly as that one.
