Have you ever been an eejit?

After some dialogue with an overseas seller, I bought a NOS watch, looking better than the current model because of some patination on the bezel, and advertised cheaper (obviously).  Then the VAT went on, and I hadn't properly assessed the postage , and the new model got reduced in the sales, and now I'm an eejit. Over some fancy coloured corrosion. :taz:

Hoping you will have stories to make me feel better ...

Oh yes, bought things I shouldn't have sold things I wish I had kept, and paid more for things than I should have - welcome to the world of watches :biggrin:

I recall you telling me how you went on to buy another Speedbird III after you sold your first one to me! :yes:

First watch I bought from the USA which looked like a bargain until the VAT etc got put on top.   Few weeks later I saw the same watch discounted in a local jeweller

I am considering selling a watch, currently keep talking myself out of it.  I thought it would be my everyday wearer when I got it, but I have accidentally bought half a dozen more watches since.  More interesting than stamps, though!

No Jet Jetski you are not alone! In fact, this slippery slope we are on is rather crowded!  Trust me, you can't always see them but others are lurking about even as I type this, just waiting for the chance to rear their nefarious heads!  All I can say is....LET'S BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!...or is that "OUT HERE?"  :huh:
