Are you a Watch bore.


Recommended Posts

I'll get the off compliment by the missus! If I have my arm around her or something I usually see in the corner of my eye her playing with the adjustable bezel or the chronograph but that's about it! One of my mates has a Seiko '5' I suggested he should get after he killed his Skagen and he often talks about the odd subject related with watches and I have a pal at work who is interested, we do morning wrist watch checks...... Keeps moral up in the morning haha!

I never mention them to anyone....what's on the forum stays on the forum.

Watch bore or not? I am.  I pester the Boz daily with " do you like this one?"  The reply is the same every time " it's a watch." My daughter gets to forcibly view any new acquisitions, alon

No. Now if anyone is interested in setting up desmodromic valve systems on bevel drive round case Ducati's............

That is one of the many advantages of intoxication I miss. :laughing2dw:

Falling asleep in the bass bin while the band were playing on St Patrick's day in Brussels, to escape a boring conversation may indicate the levels of avoidance I was prepared to undertake.

He is into all things Italian and had a proper Ducati as well as a Ducati engined Bi-Moto.

But that was a walk in the park compared to him explaining numerous times how he set up the fuelling, ignition and cam timing on his old V12 Lambo's one of which had six sidedraughts, quad cams and two distributors with six sets of points without the aid of a haynes manual.

:huh:

I am a watch bore but nobody is interested so I keep quiet...

There are two instances that I turn into a complete bore at antiques fairs, either watch or boxing enthusiasts.  Either subject comes up and there will be hours of discussion.
