Worst excuse you have used for 'needing' a new watch.

Recommended Posts

Bought a wooden display case for my Russians, that matches my bookcase, on clearance, but they only have the 8 grid (not the 6 grid).  So now I have to buy another watch, and probably get to keep my Raketa too!

What's your worst 'excuse' - not that we generally need one :whistle:

As the sage @Karrusel predicted about twenty months ago, I keep having to think up excuses to buy another watch box.

The watches seem to arrive without bothering with an excuse :blush:

With watches, like mountain and motor bikes before them I've always used the wearing down method with my missus, till in the end it'd be stupid not to by whatever it is.

It could take months but I have to admit hiding some watch purchases till the inevitable happens

collecting cars is much more challenging when it comes to hiding them.

Funnily enough my latest bout of watch collectingitis started about a year ago, when I was looking for something to celebrate being single for a year.  I kind of resented having bought her a diamond studded Bulova not long before we split, so I thought I deserved one too.  Which turned into one two.  Three.  Thirty something. :laugh:

Honey, you will never believe it, I was walking past the shop minding my own business.... when I tripped and fell and this watch got stuck on my wrist, and, and, and, the shop said it was used now so I had to buy it or they would call the police! Honest, it’s true!

just like when I fell over and my Willy got stuck in the vacuum cleaner.....

it could be worse just imagine having 250 shirts like @BondandBigM and then explaining to the wife where you left them. Or trying to get the perfume off. 

 

or alien lipstick

When the battery stops, I say it must not be working and I need another to make up, then get the battery replaced at a slightly later date! :king:

I deserve it. Other people spend hundreds of pounds a year on cigarettes, designer clothes, clubbing. I don't:)
