A Sad Tale of Woe: DHL Sucks

Posted on 31 August 2007 by John Biggs

I’d been planning on selling a watch to a fellow in the UK — a watchuseek.com member, actually — and we decided to use DHL to send it. Big mistake. They lost the damn package and now I essentially have no recourse. Either ShipRite, in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, stole it or DHL dropped it in the sewer, but I’m pissed. I’ll never use them again.

Tip: Loose the Wife

Posted on 22 August 2007 by John Biggs

One man asks the ultimate question: How can I hide my watches from my wife?

My wife has made a deal with me that allows me to purchase a watch every two years, my last watch I purchased was only a few months ago. I have been wanting to buy Sinn U1, oh so bad . Good thing is that I control the finances, so as far as her finding out about the purchase I could keep that a secret, but here are the problems, since it is a Sinn, I would have to purchase it through an online AD, and when using a credit card they will ship to billing address, but even if I get it delivered to another address, how do I put it into my collection without her finding out since my collection, is pretty out in the open, and of course she would find out if I was wearing the watch in her presence. Sometimes I wish I was single, and didn’t have to worry about the significant other getting on my case about my watch obsession.

starck_fossil_1.jpgIf you want high design and low price, go with the S+arck Fossil line. They’ve been doing some great work lately and these odd cantilevered models look stunning. This and another model should be available in the Fall.

Takes a Licking… A Timex Story

Posted on 14 August 2007 by John Biggs

A Seiko&Citizen Forum poster has slammed this watch into the pavement, dives with reckless abandon, and treats this 1991 watch like a red-headed stepchild. The result? A cracked crystal and flawless operation on the original battery. Cute story.
