    At The Duty Free Shop...

    I drove from Vancouver, BC down to Seattle today, and decided to make a stop in the duty-free shop at the border. I don't ever really buy anything, but I like checking out prices and what not.

    When I walked into the duty free at the border today, I was amazed to see three full display cases of Omegas; far more than any of my local dealers. Here's the inside of one of the cases:




    Looking at the various pieces, this one really caught my eye:




    I was a bit taken aback, though, when I inquired about the price. It was a cool $9,100.00 (CDN).

    Now, I don't really keep up on watch prices, and I haven't really even shopped for any since getting my PO. But I'm glad I got my Omega when I did!

    I feel sorry for people who don't drink. They wake up in the morning and that's the best they're gonna' feel all day...

    Yup. I was considering that when I was getting my Omega, but it bothered me that for the price, I could have gotten a PO and my Speedy.

    What a mess!
    It looks like they just chuck 'em into the display case when they open in the morning.
