    Hm. Given the thread title, I expected something a bit different.

    Actually, y'know, time to hijack this thread.
    Does the expression "Poor Man's [xyz]" seem slightly... annoying.. to you? I know it doesn't literally mean to imply poorness, but still.. Surely there has to be a better way to say the same thing without using a phrase that can be perceived as an insult / putdown...

    Re: Poor, Poor Man's Steinhart, Poor Man's B&R, Poor Man's IWC,

    Welp...that's twenty seconds of my life I'll never get back.

    Someone gimme a shout when he does the "Pauper's Patek", the "Hobo's Hublot" or the "Unemployed's AP".

    Using my mobile; please pardon the brevity of my reply, and any typos.
    This used to be my signature, but now it's just this generic drawing of a watch.



    I'm not on social media 24/7. It’s not a good way to reach me for support, or for me to deliver it. In order to best serve my customers, and manage my time effectively, I have turned private messaging off. The best way to reach me is using the support page of my website. Thanks for understanding.
