This past Christmas, one of my friends who I have been talking shop with got a pristine, white dialed Tissot PRC-200. At first I thought that he had gotten the black dial version, but he actually got the same one I had when I first showed him my watch. I suppose imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
The clincher is this: I knew I had done my job well when the second thing out of his mouth after telling me he got his watch was, "What kind of straps are available? I like the bracelet, but I like leather more, like the [DiModell] strap you have on your Seiko." He actually asked whether or not a zulu strap would work on his Tissot!
Fellas, reel in another one!
How about you? How many friends have you converted/infected to our favorite vice of choice? Tell us a bit, then show us the watch that "pulled them in".
Here's my lovely Tissot PRC200, my weapon of choice. :)
