Thread: Have you ever bought a watch thinking about the Friday thread...

  1. #1

    Have you ever bought a watch thinking about the Friday thread...

    Just wondering. I was looking at some watches, not expensive, after lunch and caught myself thinking "I'll be able to show that on the Friday thread if I buy it today". I didn't buy the watch, but I left wondering if that's just me...

    Agreed, esp. if people are choosing what to wear because of the thread.

    Guilty. Wimm, who patiently tabulates the Friday Thread's marques mentioned about a year ago that there had never been a watch posted with a brand starting with the letter "Q", so I did a bit of research and discovered that Citizen has a sub-brand called "Q&Q" not promoted in the UK, but widely available elsewhere and cheap-as-chips, hence -



    ...actually a decent little watch that gets regular wear.

    Imagine wanting to look at pictures of watches on a watch forum? Stupid, just stupid

    No.

    I can't remember ever posting a watch on that thread for years.
    Cheers,

    Nope but have bought a few on a Friday. And probably every other day of the week a few time's over

    No, but I've certainly bought more than a few because of the Friday thread, i.e. seeing someone's watch being worn and enjoyed, then thinking I really would like one of those

    That's true and I've certainly chosen to wear a watch FOR the Friday thread.
