Hi all, just wanted you to know that I just won an ebay auction for the OM on a bracelet - for USD150, shipped (it's less than half a price from where I live, actually it's about one third of the local prices for the OM) ! Can't wait to lay my hands on this watch already o| Now I just need to think of a proper excuse to my wife for buying another watch in the last couple of months ...

Anyway, pictures will follow shortly after the watch arrival.

My favorite watch buying counter-excuse:

How many pairs of shoes have you bought this past month? (of course you'll be celebrating your victory and admiring your new watch while sleeping on the sofa!!)

Or there's always the non-confrontational approach: "Diamonds, that'll shut her up!" (just don't get caught admiring the lume of your new watch while, er, receiving "thanks" for the diamond. That'll land you on the couch too and have you cooking for yourself also.)

Cheers and congrats on the OM!!

Erik

Link to where you purchased it? Yes watches are expensive here in Canada too. One store tried to sell me skx007 for 500$
Whoa! You could buy 3 monsters for that with natos for each! ;-)

Haha yeah most AD's here will actually give you about 40% off so it isn't that bad it was just that store. I still look out for local deals but I think I am going to buy my next watch (probably an orange monster) online.

I watched this seller for a while and just grabbed the opportunity when I saw one :)
Usually the OM bids close at ~$135 + $28 shipping. I paid for mine for $122.5 + $28 shipping. Just for comparison - the cheapest local store I could find, sells the OM's for $400 (!!!).

I really like this green / orange combination. Very sharp-looking watch on that strap.

The Monster was my biggest surprise Seiko. I ordered it but wasn't really sure I was going to like it. As soon as I put it on I knew I made the right decision.
