This is the one time we might need to call that statement into question.
I'm running out of pithy statements to use as my Tapatalk signature. I hate to recycle them, but I may have to start.

It's the same thing with my Facebook header and profile images. I change them up pretty frequently, depending on my mood or what's sticking in my craw recently.

Apparently it throws some folks off. One guy started a private message with me by asking to confirm he was talking to the right guy, because I change my profile pic so much.

Damned right. Throws off the identity thieves, too. They're probably using a real pic of me. Sure sign of a fugazi.

I stay away from post signatures now. It tends to reveal too much of my sarcastic, cynical, surreal humoured self. It drives people away. People like warm and cuddly.

Therefore, for your post signature I suggest a fluffy, loveable, old teddy bear with a sweet smile wearing an NTH watch on his paw 🐻

Anyway, more importantly what is the Lycanthrope wearing on his wrist?
It appears to be a Patek, which might go some way to explaining the pairing of the overly hirsute gentleman and the most likely comely young lady.

I may have missed this in the billion or so posts prior , will the Devilray Watch Gecko edition be priced the same as the normal versions?

And do we know how many of each will be available?

Thanks Doc.... not that I'm checking them out or anything

I'm not going to get a Devil Ray - not a style I appreciate or need - but I only got there after much soul-searching and willpower.

Otherwise, with the v2, I was not overly impressed with the initial release colorways. But I heard that turquoise and orange would be back. And then the WG-exclusive designs were released.

And all of a sudden, it's a really good thing I decided to pass, because it would be a wicked tough choice to figure out which to buy. Initially, I was angst-ing about turquoise vs orange, but both the WG versions are straight fire, too.

Dang. Don't envy those on a budget who are trying to decide...

No worries, Peter.

Yes, they are priced the same, with the proviso that Watch Gecko's prices include the UK VAT, but also that they ship import taxes and duties paid to the USA, EU, Canada, and Australia.

I'm not 100% certain how that works out for you in Australia. My loose understanding is that you pay 5% import duty on the value of the goods being imported, plus 10% GST on the value of the goods, plus that 5% import duty, which I think would add up to 15.5%, total.

It that's all correct, then ordering from the UK only adds 4.5% to the price for you, I think.

We've assembled 25 pieces of each SKU for this release, so there are 25 pieces of the white, and 25 of the blue.

…and now for more FedEx shenanigans. Was sitting in my living room, main door open, full storm door closed, unbreakable clear glass from top to bottom. I’m sitting about five or six steps from door across living room. Dogs start going nuts barking at door, to the left where I can’t see. I immediately got up (been waiting on Devil Ray all day) and went to door and outside. Driver was already pulling away (probably less than 15 seconds) but when he saw me come out, he stopped and backed up.

Brought my package to me in front yard. I said “You weren’t going to stop?” He says, while looking at ground, ‘I thought I had a misdelivery down the street.” I then shared my episode from last week with him and he says “Was it ground or home?” I said “No, it was 2 day just like this one, but an envelope with a few watch bands in it.“. He just shrugs, says have a good one and walks back to his truck and leaves.

I didn’t check the time when he handed me the package, but sure enough got a delivery message saying signed for by (a name not mine). Then when I clicked on “Obtain proof of delivery”, then the signature required question mark, it read “Adult recipient unavailable (age and required identification vary by country/territory)”. Right after he put the package in my hand.

If adult signature required, how can a driver just sign for it? Doesn’t that completely defeat paying for “adult signature required”?

Tell you what, given a choice I’ll never use FedEx in the future.

At least I got my Devil Ray (though somewhat soured by the delivery experience)...and really only because I was paying attention.
