I was at my nephews birthday party today and as usual, while the kids were all playing downstairs, the wemon were chatting in the kitchen / dining room, the men were on the back porch with a Cabral Porto in one hand and a Montechristo in the other.
Whenever I am around the subject always seems to turn to watches. I try to stay away from it, for fear I might start borring everyone, but someone always brings it up. So I talked about my Ionosphere and Ball for a bit and answered a ton of questions. The next thing I know the sun has set and all of a sudden I hear "Hey, check out Marc's watch!" Even though I had talked about the tritium tubes, when they actually saw it for themselves, they really got into it.
Now we are are not talking about WIS here, but they are not watch virgins either. Around the table there was a MarcelloC Tridente, a Seamaster Pro, a Tag Heuer Chrono, a Breitling for Bentley Chrono and a couple of Seiko Chronos. I swear the guy with the Trident actually went inside to charge his watch under a halogene light and STILL it was not half as bright. Anyway, needless to say, they all wanted to see my Ball up close. So around the table it went.
Like I said, I think I may have sold them on the brand! I know! Maybe we should turn the lights off in the watch stores that sell Ball watches. I bet they would sell a whole lot more! lol...
So that was my evening,
