FYI: The Marketplace is back


I’ve updated the WWR Marketplace using Amazon’s aStore system. This blog costs me money to run so if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon, watches especially, clicking through to the store before checking out would be great. All it takes for me to get a little cash is one click. Thanks!


  1. Ok, sorry to burst any bubbles, but while you’re all ogling dream watches the way Bill Clinton checked out the girl’s volleyball team when he spoke at Harvard, I’d like to bring some of you back to reality and ask if anyone out there has ever come across watches by a company called Stuhrling? Thanks to Google,I’ve seen their stuff on Amazon & Shop NBC and a couple of other places and their watches for the most part look cool and are pretty much priced right (I’m tired of dream watches, dream cars, dream audio systems–i want to wake up owning stuff!) Then, a few days back, a buddy of mine who is covering “luxury items for the new economy” sent me a bunch of pictures that he got from a friend who works as a jewelry/watch buyer for a “not to me named” retailer/website, and after not being able to find THESE particular Stuhrlings anywhere on line, I found myself chasing my buddy down for answers to questions like; Are they only for overseas markets, where they seem to appreciate mechanical watches more? (Hey it works for other brands) Or are they prototypes created to dangle in front of people like me? I’m the kind of solid citizen who has been around too many blocks to cough up an extra $300, $400, $500 or more just because Tiger Woods or James Bond (!) is wearing the same watch I want(cough up a Bond Girl, then we’ll talk!). I’m not a “Wal Mart” shopper (batteries and subdry items aside), but I have an apartment full of everything from clothes to audio components to most recently watches that tell me “Just because you don’t know about it,you pretentious member of the media it doesn’t mean its not a name” My point? I’ve uploaded the watches to this link: http://picasaweb.google.com/TECHODIA/Stuhrlingwatches36?locked=true#

    Now I need a fellow solid citizen to point me in the direction of someplace that sells ’em–or WILL sell ’em. I don’t think I violated anything by posting ’em, as my buddy knows I’m a bit on the obsessive side…so once again, my apologies to all you beautiful trust fund types whose self esteem is directly linked to whats on your wrist, in your garage and in your closet–I mean you no disrespect…but while we’re on the subject, feel free to check out the link I enclosed and tell me why you wouldn’t wear any of those watches. Better yet, tell me where (and if need be when) I can find them. I’m due for a new watch.Also,as I plan to be posting this on other watch sites, my apologies in advance for the Deja Vu (I told you I was more than a bit obsessive)
