Kindness of Members/ Valjoux fund and thanks to Alan.

Recommended Posts

As I posted yesterday the Boz and I were delighted to see Alan @Karrusel and his charming wife yesterday and sit and chat about world affairs and TWF and the CW forum.

Alan hadn’t forgotten my so far empty ambition to acquire something Valjoux and here’s how he reminded me :)

Inside was a nice start to the Valjoux fund, a very kind and lovely gesture, so many thanks Alan :yes:

I also got to admire Alan’s Alpinist :thumbsup:

A very nice day........

Cheers :)

That is a lovely gesture and great fun. A true gentleman that @Karrusel fellow!

Now you had better restrain yourself Rog, and build that fund up making your next purchase the Valjoux... :yes:

Brilliant! :laughing2dw:

Now, listen carefully, the rules are: Every time you're tempted by something you don't need in Argos or Amazon, walk away and pop that amount into the box instead.  In a few months you'll have enough saved up for that elusive Valjoux (whatever that is...? :tongue:)

I almost got my hands on a really nice Valjoux (a Philip Watch I believe it was) a few months ago... The price was too good so someone got ahead of me. :(

Really nice watches but you have to get a watch taht you like. THe movement is important but so is the watch itself. Style, design, brand, etc.

I’ve seen a couple Gimli.....one needed work and the other was identical to another watch I have with a 2824 in it.   I’ll bide my time , and money :yes: until the right one happens along.

No Wrench, but he had a word with the Boz.  The box is under observation at all times :sadwalk:
