    My current watch

    [​IMG]

    I wanted something in black but black steel watches dont seem to be as popular here as they are in hong kong.

    My Previous watch:

    [​IMG]

    It was a gift from either one of my aunts or my dad coming back from a trip to Hong Kong.
    This watch is MASSIVE. it was so big it couldnt slip under my cuff at work. so i always my right cuff undone. but we were always wearing a jacket anyway so it wasnt that obvious that i had that cuff undone. Anyway, my new manager didnt like it, filed for disiplinary which i refused to sign under the grounds that his reason was full of as much shit as he was. a few weeks later i was hauled before the company director who wrote off all the complaints and gave me 2 weeks pay because I had been suspended from active duty for that amount of time. all because of one undone cuff.

    I understand the reason behind it was to look professional. but its not as if all the bloody staff at the place i was on duty at walked around inspecting every member of the security team to make sure their cuff was done up.

    I had just moved into a 5days a week slot (12hr shifts --ugh) I didnt have time to do my own stuff. first day off i was just sleeping for the whole day 2nd day i was just mulling around relaxing at home, and before you know it. its back to work already.
    ----

    I also split with my GF of 3years while i had this watch. this watch is cursed. My dad wanted a new watch so i gave it to him. he went to get the battery replaced and it cost him £30 for the same battery you put in your motherboard. I had the battery replaced in it before for £5.

    so yeah. the watch is cursed and i wont be wearing it. If my dad didnt want it i would have cycled out to the Thames and deep sixed that motherf**ker.

    I think it's interesting how people's methods for keeping time have gone from this:

    to this:

    then back to this again:

    My watch has been buried in the sands of the sahara, and bathed in the sandy beaches of portugal, and soaked the humidity of Hong Kong. and gambled at the casinos of Macau and to a certain part of Amsterdam for some hanky panky. and it still looks new. and thats why i love it.

    If you can't fix it, I think someone on TPU in the US wanted one (I think he wanted the cooler off it?).
