    Goodwill Score!!!

    So I'm getting emissions checked and an oil change yesterday when I decided to kill time by walking across the parking lot to browse around the local Goodwill. I walk in and immediately notice something chunky and distinctly G looking in the jewelry case in the front of the store. Upon closer inspection, I see that it's what appears to be a mint DW-003 G-Lide. I asked the lady working the counter if I could take a closer look and it indeed was mint, possibly never worn. My best guess is that someone got it as a gift and put it in a drawer somewhere, only to let it run out of batteries and later donate it. Of course I snapped it up right there! Got it home, replaced the battery and greased the gasket and it indeed is as brand new as they come. The best part... it cost me $2, not including the battery I already had laying around at home!

    Very nice find. I thought my second hand G-100 was good at £8, not from goodwill though

    Brilliant! And it looks good too.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
