Baywatch - anything with a WR of 100m or up

Crossroads - point you arrive at where your sig other tells you you can keep the guitars or the watches, but not both

Casualty - anything that gets swatted aside for the sake of getting to the laptop in time to pre-order the LE nearly new watch you’re after in the sale, including pot plants, small children and the significant other

The Bold and the Beautiful - Hublot and Cartier



Edit - these are also TV soap operas in a previous life

Alternatively, something bought for £450 in the CW sale, that’s up for £900 on eBay three days later.

Grand complication - having a large package delivered one day, with two watches, followed by another package, with another watch the following day. :)

Scullery -
  • (1) A small kitchen or room at the back of a house used for washing dishes and other dirty household work.
  • (2) A bewildering and macabre predilection of some to adorn a watch face with Día de los Muertos cranial motif.
