    Well... 2012 is over. Did you find a keeper?

    I found one in 2012... or it found me.

    The Seiko Titanium Kinetic was given to me on the condition that I replace the capacitor and enjoy it.

    Capacitor replaced and wearing the heck out of it.

    How did y'all do last year?

    In October, I traded a bunch of old hardly ever worn quartz pieces with a local AD for this Frederique Constant FC-710:

    Also acquired before I joined WUS, was a Philip Stein and a Glam Rock, neither of which are drool-worthy, but are nicely made quartz pieces that I use as weekend warriors.........

    Oh definately. On the budget end, a Magrette PVD chrono. Fantastic service from Magrette coupled with a drop dead sexy and very comfortable 500M diver:

    Mid range would be my Damasko DK11: tough as nails case, phenomenal legibility and lume, and a beautiful chronometer grade in house movement with silicon escapement and spring.

    On the more expensive end, the new Sub-C No Date. Comfortable, amazing bracelet, and runs within 1/2s per day error, really exceptionally well made.

    The only watch I purchased in 2012 and its definitely not going anywhere. Its also not likely to ever be seperated from the Isofrane. Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1357190804267.jpg

    Happy new year everybody.
    I told myself that when I bought my ball em2 dlc. I sold it within a year.
    I like my money right where I can see it: strapped to my wrist.
