Many of us have certainly flirted wit the idea of a new watch for Christmas. If you are like me, you`ll find one and make the proclamation that it is your Christmas present to yourself? Or you have specifically asked the Miss`s or another family member to get it for you? Or you don't even know what watch it is yet but you know there`ll be "A" watch. Maybe you are going to find a deal on ebay, or a sales forum.

May be its a GRAIL you`ll be getting, or maybe its just a watch cause "I need another watch". LOLOLOLOL. We are after all, Seikoholics here. LOLOL.

Personally, I don't know. Its definitely going to be: "I need another watch". But I dont know what it is because I`v got to go beyond cheap, I mean, its gotta be something that I cant pass up and will never see again, right, LOL. So yes, there`ll be a watch in there somewhere, but "I" don't know what it is yet. Maybe a Casio to play with, value for money,

Theres only 23 more days and the Dr knows you have already been thinking about it.

What are you getting?

Cheers,
Randall

There's that 6215 300M Pro diver [35j low-beat auto] listed a few posts down & I just got my classic low-beat 35j hand-wind 5722/430 "hybrid" Grand Seiko. I guess those 2 qualify as "real special" (pre-)Christmas treats

And did Martin just get in his special square cased Goldfeather?? If so, that could be a 3rd (pre-)Christmas present.

Of course, PeteW got his special item about mid-year [limited ed. 36K bph modern day Grand Seiko]

Some nice stuff showed up this year already!!

Or....................I guess you could hope for the Etrena,

But the Hammy is so very nice also. You have great taste in watches Peter.

You`v seen my Hammy. I too love a simple yet effective watch.

Merry Christmas,
Randall

it would be the Eterna.

Too bad it's only a wish and that even Santa would have a hard time finding one

That gave me the same feelings. Like it may be un-obtainable at any cost.

It was this one. The sense of perfection this watch carried just blew me away and I found myself longing for it, LOL.


I told the guy I built it for to give me first dibs on it if he ever did consider letting it go. I kinda hate it when a watch does that to me, I`m fairly immune to it by now you know.

Ya, the Eterna just gets the hands better, does`nt it,

Cheers,
Randall
