I thought I had kicked the habit......it has been over a month since I last strapped on/longed for a watch. Today a shifty man in a car near my village changed all that. The white plastic bag in the boot of the car seemed harmless enough, until the shape of the boxes inside reminded me of paradise lost. From that moment on resistance was futile.
I hijacked the guy in the car (I believe his name was Thomas) and made off with the goodies in the pouring rain. The humidity was not the only factor that made my skin slick with sweat. Now all I had to do was find a quiet place to do the dirty work! It turned out to be the Hong Kong posse's stash of WUS Chinese LE watches! They turned out a lot better than I expected, although don't get your hopes too high for the generic box and packaging.
Having a few problems uploading the photos and it is time for another milk run, so I will try and get things working later!!!! Funnily enough, the initial idea for this WUS Chinese SE watch coinceded with the conception of our beloved twins......although I didn't know it at the time. The completion of the watch and birth of our babies (a little premature) mark a new direction in my life.
Special thanks to Martin and William for making things a lot less traumatic and offering help when everything became overwhelming. Thomas deserves a round of applause for his enthusiasm and attention to details I would have surely missed!
Thanks to this forum, Ernie and the Mods for this opportunity to create what is truly a community watch. It is YOUR input which made this project work and hopefully you will all be proud to wear the final product and remember the joy, and sometimes pain, the past few months have brought.
Please post pics when your watch arrives......it will be fun to see what straps everyone will be using.
Time to go, the little dragons are already screaming in the background .
