Hello, my name is PetrosD, and I am a watchaholic. It has been 37 days since my last watch purchase.

I bought 6 watches in 2019.

10 days ago I received a watch that I backed on KS in March. I don't think that counts as falling off the wagon.

23 days ago I purchased two Milanese bracelets from WatchGecko thanks to a deal I saw in the deals thread. I don't think that counts as falling off the wagon.

I check the deals thread multiple times a day. I have been weakened by some of those deals. I keep looking for a deal on the Hamilton Intra-matic 68 Panda. If I see a great deal on a Ball watch my PayPal trigger finger starts to itch, even though I already have 3 Ball watches.

I'm trying hard not to buy any more watches in 2019. But if I do and it doesn't arrive until 2020, I don't think that counts as falling off the wagon.

I hate FedEx so much.

My 5KX was supposedly "delivered."

Checked my video footage and sure enough, FedEx stopped across the street but never came by the house.

Now I gotta go through all this investigation bs.

So.... I gave KOHLs a second chance. Brought two watches from them. A Casio and another 5kx.

The Casio was delivered yesterday by usps.

The 5kx is being handled by yours truly FedEx.

Injured my forearm, so can't wear a watch on my left wrist for a few days. And I hate wearing one on the right. Arrggghhh! :(

Guess I'll have to resort to checking time on my phone, like AndroidIsAwesome :lol:
That sucks....I hope you heal quickly.

Thanks. It's just a light sprain. I wore a watch for a couple of hours today and then took it off. The pressure from the watch and strap starts to bother it a little after a while. Should be all good in a few more days.

Give your other wrist a chance. It's been so lonely and jealous for all these years.

C'mon. Lol

I just had to pick out my health insurance plan for the upcoming year. When comparing premiums, I found myself thinking about the the $ differences between them in terms of watches per month. 🤦‍♂️

Come on bro those are rookie numbers. I expect better performance from you in the coming year. No less than 2 watch purchases per week.

I was holding fast with one purchase for the year (and that was just bought recently). Now I suddenly have another 6 incoming. But they'll be sent to The Chronodome. Six go in, only two come out.

Sometimes it's not the number is watches, it's the number of dollars that gets you into trouble.
