You could get one for $23 this Thursday if you're a lucky ducky.

It's a very nice watch.
Have you ever done that before? Looks interesting.

Iím on the playoff bubble of 3 of my 4 teams. My teams are so inconsistent. Each of them have scored anywhere from 75-190 in any given week.

Not that I was even in a position to buy them right now,but both the houses I had looked at are off the market and that makes me upset. Being a poor sucks.

Cut your salary in half, keep everything else the same. Then youíd be poor.

I've entered many raffles but have yet to win one.

I thought it was odd to see the exact watch in two completely different places on the internet so I figured I'd link you in for the off chance you'd want to buy a spot for $23 on a 1/100 shot.

You seem like the kind of guy who likes a neutral EV long odds gamble and wouldn't mind lighting $23 on fire. I'm sure you recognize this isn't your standard to-go fountain drink splurge kind of situation here.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

Donít get me wrong here. If the process was as simple as ďput match to bills,Ē I would have done it. I just donít know how the system works and didnít want to spend the time to figure it out. I will definitely buy that watch within 24mos, and I wonít feel the slightest bit bad about it. I ****ing love the knockoff I bought.

Some people drive $80k trucks, I drive a mid size sedan. Iím only spending a tiny fraction of that difference on this watch!

Donít doubt my ability to rationalize stupid shit.

-Go to the subreddit at least one minute before the raffle is scheduled to go live.
-save this to your clipboard, “one random spot” or however many spots you plan on taking
-refresh until you see the new thread
-post the copied phrase in the reply box
-wait for 2 PM’s; first will show you your assigned number, the second will give you the PayPal address to send funds
-send PayPal friends and family only
-reply to the second PM with the info it asks for
-sweat your spot

The most coveted watches will fill in under a minute. The Rolex Milgauss from this morning filled almost instantly.

I’m all for spending money on a luxury watch. I have a segregated savings account I’m slowly funding with the intention of buying a Speedmaster pro but I could swing back to wanting a seamaster planet ocean before I get the money saved.

Hey, no skin off my back, I donít care for it much, either. Thatís just the watch I thought of when Strat said he had a knockoff.

Lose my shit is a tad strong. Iíd just make fun of you for having three thousand dollars in $150 watches. Those were decent looking watches

Some of yours are ugly. My only thought on it, for me, is iíd rather have a nice watch that is timeless, instead of a bunch of cheap ones, like womenís costume jewelry, to be switched out based on your outfit

I am probably going to wait for the $150 watch to stop, and then buy the real deal. Assuming I donít win this raffle. I really donít need more than one watch, and donít want to buy a winder.

i find i often look at my watch, but almost never to ascertain the time or date. its mostly an attempt to look cool at the store while in line near a hottie with a body.
