Nowadays it is so easy to hunt for G-Shocks. I love to roam the internet checking out the best offers. Sometimes after a night out with friends I will check all my ebay items that I am following. It is a bad habit because after having to much beer my rational side goes blurry and makes way for a "what the heck" attitude.
I was on a hunt for a golden G011. That model is becoming very rare now and I spotted one in Germany. The pic showed a stock photo and I made a pretty high offer. The next day I saw to my horror that I had bid on a used G-Shock. I was praying that someone would outbid me and was figuring out how to remove my bid. I eventually won the watch for about 77 euros. I was really worried about the condition of the watch and could kick myself in the head for being drunk and not reading the small print.
When it arrived it really was in used condition. The clasp had lost a little of the golden shine and there was a schratch on the bezel.
I decided to keep it to remind me not to be so stupid anymore. Considering its rarity after a few years I am quite fond of this watch. It has a story to it and it doens't look that bad anymore to me as when I got it for the first time.
Did you ever buy something stupid? Did you ever buy something while intoxicated?
Maybe you overpaid for a watch or something like that. Share your story in this topic...
