I went to Tyson's Corner in Northern Virginia today to complete the last of my Christmas shopping. As a treat, I made an effort to stop in the watch stores to give Santa an idea of what I wanted for Christmas. My first stop was Fashion Time (upper level by Bloomingdale's).
To my delight, they are now an official Kobold dealer. They had 7 watches and were very helpful. I looked at the Phantom Ti and the SEAL Ti. I had never seen the Phantom Ti but frankly was not as impressed as I was with the SEAL. Having owned both, I am clearly a fan of the SEAL - so I gave Santa (aka the wife) a "terribly subtle" hint of what I wanted.
The bottom line here is that I have to go only 1 hour to Tyson's Corner instead of 3 to Pittsburgh. Woo-Hoo!!!
