Default Happy days

So I just got all my new watches, straps and books. I've got a smile for miles right now.

You got it bad, buddy. Seriously a nice collection you've fairly quickly amassed.

Impressive!

I won't lie that I got it bad. Thanks on the compliment. I have my eye on some other watches as well lol. I had to take it easy last month (Feb) due to my old truck being broke down for 8 days, 4 days stranded in Cali due to weather. Then 2 days lost while I got my permanent trailer and a new truck. That's part of the reason I have been quiet last month. Now I need to do some sizing on some bracelets and/or swap to Natos.

Easy, the Tockr will get worn first. The box though, I absolutely love it. It is quite heavy and will hold 20 watches. The only drawback is it holds 20 so I need 10 more to fill it lol.

Oh man, sounds like you had some stressful times recently Shaker.
Fortunately it seems like you had a whole watch show, or store waiting
for you like this at home ! ..Holy cowza, would you look
at all of that ! ..Big big congratulations !!!

Love the watch box first off, and how it shows off all these show
stoppers, and then how about the fleet of watches, straps, and
also books ! ..You are going to be really busy for a while sir.

Incredible haul !!! ..Hope you keep on enjoying there Shaker !

In my haul I also got my tool kit for working on watches and a digital caliper. I used the bracelet tool to size the Mercer and Seiko. I put the blue and white nato on the Dryden as it just matches so well. The only watch still on the original strap is the Tockr. I need to pick up some curved pins so I can put a nato on it as well. I have a blue and grey strap for it.



As far as other watches goes there are a few on my list I'd like to get. Tsao is on the short list. I'm sitting here watching my copy of "From Earth to the Moon" and it reminds me the Bulova moon watch is another one on the short list. I love the history of things. Probably why the Fliegler style appeals so much. There are quite a few micro brands that I have looked at that are also nice. Vorticis another one that has a great backstory with how they take old pocket watches and remake them into wrist watches.

Thanks, I wore the Mercer all day and love it. It will have to be a watch that I only wear if I am just driving or like today parked. I will see plenty of wrist time though. I'm glad I bought it from you

I gotta gear jammin buddy named Jerry Jackson. OTR driver for WalMart.
He and I are part time Bluegrass musicians. He just picked up a Martin D28
accoustic guitar for $2,400.00.
My poser. Buy a Martin D28 or another watch? I could'a had the best
Martin sold for what I've spent on watches!! Nobody thinks I'm the sharpest
knife in the drawer.
Musical instruments are just as pricey as watches nowadays!!!

Congrats Shaker!!!

We both seemed to amass our standing collections in rapid time although you had to wait longer to enjoy them! You must be like a kid on Xmas morning. Now however, you're faced with the daily agonizing choice..."What to wear today...???" What a delicious quandary to find yourself in!
