Re: 20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90

I've been toying with the idea as I hit the big 50 last year, but nit seen the magic one yet. Last bug watch was a seamaster for my 30th, but just about to pass that down to my son. Sounds like a prime opportunity to get a new one to me! Agreed, but my desires exceed my purse....at the moment

Re: Is there anything more distracting than a bad review?

…but when the ones you trust say things you don't want to hear, it tends to dissuade me from my purchase (which is both right and wrong i suppose). The catch-22 of reading reviews! I deal with this by always waiting a reasonable amount of time before making any purchases. If I still want it in a mo...

Re: Is there anything more distracting than a bad review?

…but is there anything more disappointing than reviews that burst your bubble. Sucking the fun out of it and tainting the object of your desire. Now granted I don't have to listen to them, or believe them all, but once I read about shoogly bracelets, mineral crystals scratching or time loss i cant ...

Re: Is there anything more distracting than a bad review?

One solution is to buy ‘impulsively’ enough that you only remember to read the reviews once the watch is on your wrist and you’re loving it. Then confirmation bias is your friend - anything negative in the review will just be defeated effortlessly by your subconscious while you remember and magnify...
