Really like this SWI watch. Lost by $10 on a 7750 watch in silver/white dial but in it's place picked up this blue dial 3 hand auto. I need to stop the madness though. I'm saying this for a couple of years now.

The day/date blue dial SWI is a nice watch. The guy I was talking about yesterday in one of your threads about the SubAqua space rock had several of those he had to sell in mint condition. After a few weeks of lowing the price he sold them for $335.00.

As long as you have a home, food and all bills are paid along with funds for when it comes time for retirement.:hmm: The real madness will come when it comes time to move the collection for whatever reasons, health issues, lost interest or preparing for the hourglass of death. I've come to accept the ones left behind will be sold in a flea market for a few dollars each or just thrown in the trash. Regardless of whatever lies ahead for those useless trinkets is irrelevant once you're gone.

I wish a new that, but what the heck. Still scored a nice one.

It is a very nice watch one of the best SWI made from top to bottom. It's sad to see the things we love sacrificed for survival when life's circumstances dictate the necessity.

Win some, lose some. Nobody hits a homer at every trip to the plate. Congrats on the latest.

Sadly, but truthfully, you are right.

When our time comes, a smart WIT will find my wife, offer $10 a watch, and make out like a bandit! Of course, the invicta haters will say they're not even worth $10! Lol

MiKe...by the way ....leave your family my contact info in your will.....lol. Ill even offer them $15 a watch if you go first!

WOW was selling the bracelet for the three hand model for less than $20.00 for a few years. I was always amused for that price they hung around so long. With screws in the links and the quality it was a bargain. A guy has one here for $33.99 and might be good for a spare if you're not sure of the shape on the one you purchased.
