Far and wide I will find 'em and I ride 'em
Bricks and mortar get my licks just for kicks
AD or authorized I don't analyze
Retail, wholesale never fail
Online or offline, I find I don't redefine
Too big to fail or yard sale they all hale
Run or hide just for fun deals I find

I like it at $250 even though the even numbered dates being red doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

For anyone still interested in this one, the creator did have an interested proposition in their last project update:

I want to start by saying that I am so thankful for all who have given feedback, comments and support on this project! It's truly a passion for me and I can see that other folks know that, especially when they can hold the Glaucus Dive watch in their hands.

With the end of this campaign quickly approaching, we are at 48% funding and the needed 52% might be insurmountable. I am going to push as hard as I can all the way until the very last minute, and I know that there are others doing the same!

All that said, if this project does not go through this time around, I would love to have the Glaucus sent on a world tour to be reviewed by several outlets. Then I would like to re-launch the campaign and try again to see if we can make this thing happen!

If this is something that you are interested in being a part of, I would love to get your email so that I can let you know once this project goes live again. If you head over to my website's contact page, you can submit your info and I will let you know immediately when the project launches again. Thank you all again for everything!
