    WIS vs. WUS... what's the difference?

    Hi WatchUSeek members,

    I feel a bit silly asking this, but I am a bit confused whether it is WIS or WUS (or both?) when referring to WatchUSeek. I am under the impression that WUS is the acronym for the site, but I see that people also say WIS. Or, does WIS mean something else altogether? I did a forum search and it says no results are found, which I think is the case because the word search is too small. Please enlighten me!

    WIS = Watch Idiot Savant.

    Check out Idiot Savant on the 'net for greater understanding. It is a term used in joke.

    You are approaching WIS when you have the major watch manufacturers and ETA saved on your Favourites.
    Or spend time looking on the wrist of that georgeus female/male at the bar.


    Or if you tell the person " wait a bit, I need to take off my watch. The brick wall might scratch the bracelet."

    First of all Merry Christmas.
    Secondly, let me enlighten you on the WIS (Watch Idiot Savant) thing. You might even consider yourself one after reading. You will at least be hip to a WISs' meaning.
    Here is a thread I started here back in April. What is a WIS? you ask...Well, some definitions
    It isn't the only thread on the subject. Just the one I knew to locate quickly for you.
    Hope this helps

    We've got some issues with the onsite search function and so until they are fixed here is a workaround.

    1. Surf to Google
    2. Click on Advanced Search
    3. Type in your keywords
    3. Search within domain watchuseek.com

    That may help you out temporarily.

    Just add the following right after your search terms in Google:

    site:forums.watchuseek.com

    so WIS is watch idiot savant, so what is WUS?

    sorry for necroing, but i did the google search first and found this thread so basically had to pick between making a new thread and getting yelled at for not googling, or getting yelled at for necroing. Gotta love forums!
