Cool watches homer. Been a couple of pictures of people in shops with the kettle on, do you ask the assistant if its okay? And are they okay with it?

Huge logo and numerals ruin that explorer, 100% go for the datejust it's classic

Cant do that stealth, you got a rollie on and they are closer to you than any human has ever been, they are actually cuddling you to keep you there.

Such a British thing to be embarrassed about but makes perfect sense to take a comparison pic.

After a new white faced dress watch, can't decide between the 3. I've already got a black face max bill so leaning towards the meister but the max bill is such a classic i duno if that'll stand the test of time better.

Suppose i must be to british, cos i would be so embarrassed walking out after taking smudges and everyone in the shop all turning to each other and going 'what a complete fucking time wasting window shopping photo taking for his blog cunt.' Even though they are never ever going to see me again in this life Smiling

Still didnt get an answer on do you have to ask doe.

If I was spending £5k on a watch I would feel entitled to do whatever I wanted!

You miss the point totally, they aint though. Well not where the pics from where they are trying them on. Eye-wink
If i knew i was getting my wedge out and walking out after buying it, i would be the same, i wouldnt be ashamed to even ask the assistant to take a pic of me wearing it whilst reefing my bird.

What about an IWC Portuguese? Probably get a good condition one for about £3,000. Make a change from the Junghams since you've already got one. Attractice watches the Chronoscope nonetheless.
