    Cool Just Arrived!!!!!

    Hi all...

    I maybe a newbie to this forum, but definitely not a newbie to the disease of watch collecting- you know the one- where it's ok to not eat for a week, but cannot go without a new watch...

    After promising myself earlier in the year after yet another extravagant purchase that it would be the last watch for the year... I happened upon the com-gen pic of the new marine and I just had to have it. Realising what I had promised myself, I then said, watches under a certain $$ amount doesn't 'really' count... So off I went and ordered one...

    This watch is not without its drama. After paypalling the amount in full, I waited in anticipation for the quick arrival of said purchase. Tracking it on the good ol' FedEx site hourly, hoping that the status would change quicker. Unfortunately, the status was stuck on the worst possible one- Clearance Delay.

    I guess it's not really FedEx's fault, but rather one of the customs, which is vital for stopping dangeours things from getting into the country, such as soil samples, virii, plant, wood and meat products, and, of course, my watch. (Obviously made entirely from the aforementioned items...) After almost 3 days of delays and many dollars of contribution to the government from my account in the form of forced donations, It arrived bright and early this morn...

    The photos will tell the rest of the story, but I'm happy to say, it is definitely worth the wait!!





    After the quick 'opening of box' photos, I changed over to the black straps I had acquired in anticipation of the arrival. It's going to be my dress watch, so... dress it up I must...

    " For watches there's always TIME "

    I was asked what the time was that was on my watch ?
    Does anybody really know what time it is ?
    Does anybody really care ?
    If so I can't imagine why..........
    I do, I do, I do care about time.
    (Thanks R Lamm)
