    Tell me about that time when...

    Tell me about that time when you started getting interested in a watch, researched and then decided to look into the sales corner only to find out that you missed on some very good deals from a few weeks back.

    I've been looking around for some Nomos and there were a lot of good options sold in June. fml

    How often do you guys check the sales corner?

    Quite a few times it happened to me, was so frustrated but then something magical happened ;) you find an alternative in the sales corner, I used to check it 3 times a day but no I found the watch I was looking for and have no money, I don't check it anymore to resist temptation ;)

    Man I saw something that I liked and in less than 24 hours from posted it was snatched. The first time I saw it it was around 1 hour before it was bought :/

    I don't like buying preowned watches, so I rarely wander over there. I've heard in threads on this forum that asking prices can be unreasonable though.


    I like watches.

    I check daily if I'm actively looking for something, because I've missed out before.

    I use the watchrecon alerts, makes it super easy to see if anyone listed a watch I'm interested in

    Was on the hunt for a Speedy Pro a couple of weeks ago. I had saved a search for "Speedmaster Professional" that I would refresh every couple of hours, then I decide to change it to "Speedmaster 3570" only to find that one for a very good price and in excellent condition had posted, and sold in 3 hours. The thread didn't have the word "professional" anywhere so it never popped up from the previous searches...

    Ended up getting a good deal somewhere else though so I guess I shouldn't be complaining...

    I'd been interested (still am) in a Smiths Radio Room. They're as rare as hens teeth in the sales forum... Then as I was doing my daily watchrecon check I noticed that there was one for sale, a fair bit cheaper than RRP. The ad was up for about 12 hours and it was already on hold pending funds.


    It was up for sale and sold while I was asleep... Damn these time zones.
