Watching some awful programme about pawnbrokers. People seem to spend ridiculous money on watches. What about you pls?
My previous one was a few pounds on Ebay. I'm far too clumsy/careless to own nice, expensive things.
£35 plus 20% discount (I love asos)
It's this watch
I'm terrible with watches, I either forget to wear them or end up banging/scraping them on everything because my co-ordination is abysmal.
actually - I nicked it so...
and I still wear it 8 years later
but my grandad gave me his watch when he got all the gout, it's made of gold so it's probably worth >£40. never worn it though, who wears a gold fucking watch, ridiculous people and jockeys is who.
I got a remote control tv one a few years ago from a charity shop for 50p, it was a bit rubbish.
love it to death, though
here's a picture http://i47.tinypic.com/2mnrqxu.jpg
that's nice and all but
is that a mirrored pic or are you a right-hand watch wearer?
which means it's probably worth two quid.
my dad bought it for me for my 18th birthday, i bumped into him andf my little sister in town the day before my birthday, just after he'd bought it, little sister runs up to me (about 4 at the time) JOE JOE DAD GOT YOU A WATCH FOR YR BIRTHDAY. Bless her
its a nice watch.
really beautiful watch though
Wasn't a fan of that, tbh.
the 15 grand one was a 1960 Rolex 'big' Daytona with a 'tropical dial' and leather strap
it was SO nice
but the dial was a caramel/treacle deep brown
That one's a million times nicer.
insanely lovely isn't it
Is it Hardcore Pawn? I'm a big fan of pawn broker 'reality' shows.
god these pawn puns are so terrible though aren't they
I wonder how real hardcore pawn is sometimes, and they're the biggest bunch of fucking morons I've ever seen, how they run a successful shop is beyond me.
I listen to this comedy radio show and the guy talks about Pawn Stars all the time but he had to turn off Hardcore Pawn after about five minutes iirc.
Look at this similar programme feat Genesis P Orridge from Throbbing Gristle trying to sell a Thigh Bone Trumpet
I really like it.
Never had an expensive one. Had my eye on a real nice something or other but I can't remember the name of the brand. Lovely watch, £1200 though.
That have been given to me; dunno, but it feels expensive and i know the brand ain't cheap.
FANCY. It was £30 and fell to bits canny quick
I don't know how much it's worth.
Day-to-day, I wear this one - it is the second most expensive watch I've ever owned, and cost £17 about three years ago: http://4m.scene7.com/is/image/4m/tim0010sil_01?$oki-ni_product$
First watch I've had since a dinosaur watch I had age six. I really like it, but don't wear it often enough.
on a red LED push-button-to-light-up Storm jobber, from a place in Affleck's, with my first uni industrial placement paycheque. Was pretty made up with it at the time. It lasted a couple or three years. And then broke.
Same amount six or seven years later on a sporty timer affair. It lasted a year our so. And then the (integrated, non-replaceable strap) broke.
Got given a watch by my last work when I left after they'd made me redundant. It's nowt much and I don't wear one these days, so I guess it'll only get worn with a suit or something.
I can appreciate the precision engineering, but aesthetically they all look like ugly lumps of metal to me, and in terms of practical necessity they're utterly redundant - pretty well everything has a digital clock on it these days.
The value of the one I wear is about £100, but was a present.
