  1. Just got my 1st Gen Swiss GMT in the mail today.
  2. Just got it today, didn't even need to take any links out, just used the sliding micro adjust to make it fit a little tighter and it fits perfect.
  3. I know a lot of you are familiar with this watch, but for those that aren't, it's the first version of the Trident GMT they (Christopher Ward) sell right now, I picked it up on a sale (limited stock) on their forum directly from them I had been eyeing a newer Trident or Trident GMT, but they are quite a bit more than I could spend ATM, so this older model (although stated as in Like New condition; if anything was wrong with it CW fixed it) will do for now. https://www.google.com/amp/www.ablogtowatch.com/christopher-ward-c60-trident-gmt-watch-review/amp/
  4. Wishful thinking but he will go out and buy alcohol if he has money either way; so it doesn't matter if I drink or not (which I haven't been since 3 or 4 weeks ago) The only thing getting me ahead (slowly) is working an extra 10 hours every Friday (since I get my 40 in Monday through Thursday).
  5. Snobbery and value perception is definitely right, Rolex/Omega/other expensive name brand watch = $5000+++ for an automatic movement watch with a Meteorite dial, any lesser known brand usually = less than $1000 and therefore may be considered "junk" to those buying the Rolex/Omega/other high end brands. At the end of the day a Swiss 7750 is a Swiss 7750, and a Meteorite dial is a Meteorite dial, same as how an ounce of Platinum/Gold/Silver is what it is regardless of what name/design is stamped on it. And usually just because a watch costs 5-10x as much doesn't mean you are getting something that much better (usually you aren't because quality can only get so high before you aren't paying for better quality, just the name)
  6. I hate terrorists more than anything else, such petty differences (especially between the 2 different types of Muslims) and such extreme means to "solve" them. Something drastic has to happen to cause the right kind of change and preferably some sort of real solution so the violence and deaths can end.
  7. Reminds me of the last Gen I had with a Swiss 7750 in it that nobody would touch for $300 because apparently the brand name on the dial meant the Swiss 7750 was junk (or so people act like if the brand name starts with I and you guys know which brand I mean)
  8. Not quite sure what you mean, he's closer to an alcoholic than I am, often drinking during the day time and saying he's needs to drink to sleep good. Plus I have missed on average less than 1 day per year (besides the 1 week per year that i take off for a short vacation) at this job I have. And I even used to work almost 70 hours weeks half of every months for a couple years (2 weeks on, 2 weeks off (by which I mean 40 hours))
  9. Well we are all family in this house and try to help out. I just wish he (my younger brother) would have been more responsible. I try to influence him to do better, but you can only do so much (especially since he was often not home and was hanging out with one of his friends too much; instead of being home)
  10. I appreciate all the responses and will stop drinking (at least for a while), just wish I had some extra money right now to catch up on my credit card, my life is not normally super hard. But I don't always have a good perspective on things, and it's gonna be hard for a while to play catch-up on my credit card while bills keep coming in and the household is down $400 a month. This is what happens when everyone is supposed to contribute to the bills and 1 person had to be irresponsible, miss too much work, and get fired (then won't be back to work for a while due to waiting on an appointment to get his tonsils removed). Not trying for sympathy points as this is really my situation and I'm not asking for anything as that would not be right, just thought some of you would like insight into why I am feeling how I am lately.
  11. It's doubtful I'll ever do AA, but I won't be buying any alcohol for a few months while I can barely pay my bills and afford to eat at the moment (I'm not gonna starve or be out on the street, just a huge ($1600, which is huge for me) credit card bill that will take months to pay, with nothing else to sell). I can only hope (and ask the supervisors for) some overtime and with luck I'll be working every Friday for the next month (Saturday too if possible, but unlikely).
  12. I'm not "shining people on", I'm honest and to many people a fool not worth dealing with. People can think of me what they want to, but I'm not a bad person.
  13. I'm good now that the effects of a slight hangover have passed, just slightly stressed due to money problems, if I had spare watches I would sell 1 or 2, but I'm down to a beater that I'm not planning on selling. I will catch up, it's just not easy off of 40 hour weeks.
  14. I have hobbies, that's part of my troubles a few weeks ago with eBay, PayPal, and trying to get a refund when some jackass sent me a CNET Magazine instead of a ps4 pro.
  15. Yeah I know it's a fleeting feeling of happiness, but a little false happiness is sometimes better than cruel reality.
