Happy Field Watch Friday!
My Citizen field/pilot. Taking it to work so that I can measure it for a replacement crystal. I am not sure I will get a sapphire, but at least it will be something that isn’t scratched up.

Today at our son's Valentine's party my wife showed me that she was wearing her Seiko 5. She did NOT want to take a joint wrist shot. When I explained "Field Watch Friday" she asked, "says who?" "The Legion of Watch Deal Seekers!" I replied. Then she told me that I am crazy. :roll:

Did she not understand how awesome it was that BOTH of you were compliant?!? My wife has finally accepted me taking watch and beverage pics at dinner. Her mom still brings up me taking a wrist shot with the golden gate bridge in the backround while we were sailing. She didn't understand then, but I've got the whole family coming around.

My mom is telling me about all the compliments she has gotten on the Hamilton I gave her for Christmas (WTF?!? Nobody EVER compliments my watches, let alone multiple comments in under 2 months!)

My FIL now sends me wrist shots, usually accompanied with beer or whiskey. I feel like I have done a good job of getting everyone on board with my hobby lol.

And not compliant today. Wore the watch I wore on our wedding day for a Valentine's day dinner. Pictured with the spoils the wife got me.

Managed to pry the NY0040 off my wrist long enough to be compliant on Seiko Saturday with the SRP775, while I wait for my car to get its oil changed and tires rotated. Image

Tap. Talk. Buy a watch. Repeat.

That's awesome. Before I forget...great job with your Mom and the Hamilton!

No, my wife doesn't get it. I think she looks at it as a little bit self absorbed. I wish I could remember who said that one of the things they like about this place is that we can get just as excited over a $10 Casio as a Rolex or Omega. I would buy that person a beer.
