Black Friday 2018 - What Have You Bought?

Post by what-time-is-it » Wed Nov 21, 2018 2:31 pm

Share with the forum what you have bought so far and if you wish to disclose what deal you managed to get.

So far for me:

Straps from Watchgecko a few weeks ago which I'll probably never use - remember you can use code WATCHUSEEK for an extra 10% off
https://www.watchgecko.com/special-offers.html

A cheap basic laptop from ebuyer for when I'm abroad @ £149
https://www.ebuyer.com/838351-lenovo-id ... 81a5007kuk
Current collection incl Alpina, Breitling, Casio, Citizen, Eterna, Omega, Oris, Rado, Rolex, Seiko, Tag, Timex & Tudor.

Also got a few straps in the Watchgecko sale.

Hoping to get a deal on some Nest smoke alarms and the Nest doorbell hopefully as well

Nothing. It’s Wednesday.
Steve
The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Pulled the trigger on a new Samsung washer & dryer from Home Depot’s BF sale. Even at BF prices, they are a heck of a lot more expensive than when we last bought a set 15 years ago!

Not yet.. I ordered it from the factory as I wanted a couple of specific extras. It's in the country, been through the central PDI process and now I'm just waiting for a date to collect it. Should be in the next week or so - just in time for the really crappy weather. :D

You should have asked BMW to send it RMSD 1pm...well maybe not.

Yes hopefully some dry weather for your first few outings on it. I'm putting the winter tyres on my car this weekend, is there such a thing for motorbikes out if interest?

As you know, BMW operate on their own terms... as for winter tyres for bikes, I am not aware of them as a 'thing', but as with watches, it's a whole new world of specialisms and pedantry. :lol:

After the CW website crashed I managed to get through on the phone and bought a C60 316L Yellow. However saved an extra £7 by using the Xmas code as opposed to the 15% Black Friday deal. Pretty certain I want this watch having looked at reviews, photos, YouTube vids etc. However the blue Trident is also calling so I may order one to compare and send my least favourite back.
