Skin, vintage 1988, of Jewish, German, and English making. Quality craftsmanship, waterproof (to a certain extent). When exposed to sun, burns a hot, painful reddish hue.
Ha ha ha...sense of humor is always accepted no matter what thread it's in. Let's not take ourselves too serious with jewelry as it's not about how much it cost but rather if it tells the correct time. I've got a ton of watches when I started that hobby and now I just wear em because they tell the right time. There are some beautiful watches for sure out there but the only thing that matters now is if they are reliable and don't cost me an arm and leg to just put a battery in em...I've got some that cost a couple hundred dollars to put a battery and make sure the seal is still good on it.
A mind is like a parachute...it works best when it's open.
Understand, and know that a very small percentage of people are "watch guys" Just thought some fellow guys in the WIS minority would post here, and the others wouldn't bother. I'm not a pipe guy, hence, haven't posted in those threads.
Still, this forum is a giant community, and even though I don't smoke pipes as much as I do cigars, I still read interesting threads. Like you said, watch lovers may be in the minority, so they might not all flock to a thread in a matter of hours, while the entire forum can read and reply to the thread. I wouldn't consider it a failed thread at all!
