    Doesn’t the SKX have a 7S27 or whatever? Turtles and Samurai have the 4R36 and 4R35 respectively, and the Sumo has the 6R15.

    And regardless of movement, the look and feel better than the SKX.

    And I have the SLA017 green LE already - far right in the photo.

    Reading about him now thanks to you. What a sleaze.

    I hope that he, and people like him, realized that their wealth was built on the backs of those PhDs that they denigrated.

    Wife and I almost always spilt a meal. One can see that as health conscious or cheap. Plead guilty to both.

    Nothing wrong with that. Once he realizes he's no good at school might as well go get rich.

    I swear we are one and the same person ....
    Health conscious and cheap but then spend a load on watches ... who would have thought.
    I would rather be thirsty than pay 6 bucks for a bottle of water ...

    My dad used to say “being cheap pays off “ supposed it did he retired quite early and still doing just fine .

    That place is actually decent food wise but the regular plates are just absurd in size. I get the skinnylicious menu item and kids meal and we all split one desert . ...works for 4

    It’s so hypocritical though. For the self-proclaimed MOR to wear such a cheap POS to the beach. How could anyone take you seriously as the man with THE best Rolex collection. Man-up. You overspent by at least $10k for the BLRO and Daytona.......spend $5-6k for a beater to wear so you NEVER have to wear an inferior watch again.
    I wouldn’t be able to relax and enjoy my time on the beach in a nice watch, especially a Rolex. And I’m not trying to show off on the beach because a beach house sorta trumps any timepiece in that locale. I’m King on my Maine beach. And I like Seiko’s. They are fun and I collect them too.

    I didn’t overpay for my BLRO and 500C. I paid below today’s fair market value, in fact.

    I'm honestly at a bit of a loss.......So how do you publicize that you own a particular beach house......Make a sign that says, "that's my house" with an arrow??

    Your belief system and set of values is so different from mine.........I cannot relate at all. No worries though. Glad you are happy and having a good Holiday weekend at the beach. Unfortunately, I have in-house call at the hospital Yesterday and tomorrow

    Hey, no skin off of my nose; I'm not the one who's going to have to deal with the health issues down the road...
