If I go to an indie will they likely do something off the price for me or is it the same across the board?

A 2021 going on here for a decent price. Would recommend these guys, I’ve bought a few in the past from them.

Kinda agree. Whenever I see a sub I always think “fake/poor mans fifty fathoms”

What’s your G shock toy watch an upgrade of?

Baffles me that people choose to stay in places like that in Marrakech. There are so many other smaller and more perfect places to stay than that place.

Depends on who you're with, for me with a group of boys it has to be one of the nice big hotels in hivernage.

If you're with your mrs a small boutique style riyad makes sense, but not with a group of lads.
