I actually do like my seamaster a lot. Some sentimental value lah, I bought it when I got promoted after my first year of work. I like the slick blue wavy face; the red second hand, the cute sea monster at the back, the little round diving screw on the left that i will never use...
Just that its quartz. Didn't know much abt watches then, so i bought the quartz. A bit regret.
But I do wear it a lot. Its like more expensive than my seiko and my swatches, but cheaper than my blue sub, but not so ex that i have to be careful, so i wear it like 3x per week.
Anyway I let it go for 1K to my friend after 15 months of going thru all kinds of sh-eet with me. I'll miss the little blue guy. But at least he'll get to see the world since my friend flies a plane. Now there's a vacant spot in my heart.
acherly quite hengs got peepurs take frm u 1k.

moi rather take moi 1k throw away than buy a 1k quartz watch

Why not keep it, can pass on to yr kids. The seamaster series will definitely go on for the next decade.

JW is reliable. Boss is friendly, will not refuse watches for consignment if he cannot meet your target selling price (but dun go and try to sell him swatch lah). His Breitling prices are among the best in singapore.

IMO it makes more sense to go quatrz if getting dress watch which you dont wear everyday.

Say you wear a certain watch only once or twice per week, doesnt make sense to wind the watch everytime you want to wear

This season, DBS black card got 10% rebate! Absorbed by the bank! At Ngee Ann city only.
Try and negotiate in Hour Glass at Ngee Ann City when the promotion is on (prob will have one again these few days) and u can get 15% plus 10% rebate! (but max is $500 rebate, and will be credited in mar 07)
