    You Ever Get A Bug Up Your ??

    You ever get a bug up your butt and just had to have a certain watch? Of course you have. You may be even worse than me.
    Anyway, my latest quest has been a BNIB, NTH Scorpene-blue.

    not my pic

    Thought I had it twice only to have my orders cancelled when they found they were out of stock. So, when I saw the listing @ "Serious Watches" I was skeptical, but ordered it just the same albeit with no optimism at all. I mean why kid myself, right? After ordering I went back to the listings page and now it said, "Out Of Stock'. Crap! They've just realized that they are out of stock now too, I thought. Ding! Here's an email from them. It's a shipping notification! Yaaaaay! It will be here Thursday. I think maybe I've captured the last BNIB out there. It's very satisfying to think I may be the final cause of this animal's extinction. Sort of like a black rhino steak with snowy owl sauce. Delicious!!
    Sometimes it's just more satisfying being last.

    If "Sort of like a black rhino steak with snowy owl sauce. Delicious!!" doesn't make it into Nth's marketing material, then I'll be very disappointed in Doc Vail!

    How so? The hunt is a big part of the fun for me. And this one was particularly satisfying. For me the only possible flies in the ointment would be if the watch was damaged or maybe if I was sent a watch that someone else had returned or if it's lost in shipping. Don't foresee any of those. And how could UPS possibly lose it when I am refreshing the tracking page every 30 seconds?

    The “Sort of like a black rhino steak with snowy owl sauce” just kills me.
    NTH turn some nice watches out - thanks Chris.

    I already got the new-age-males after me for calling that very same watch a "panty-dropper".

    Don't need the PETA people coming after me, too.
    This used to be my signature, but now it's just this generic drawing of a watch.

    Do they still say there's no such thing as bad publicity?

    Having seen no panties drop, other than their own, they lack perspective.

    They better stay away from my 3 legged rhino. You do know why it has just 3 legs, right?

    An animal that good you don't eat all at once.

    They may indeed.


    Tapatalk is all natural. Wash in cold water and tumble dry on low heat. Some talk shrinking may occur.
