I'm not a watch person, so I don't know what to say about Hamilton.
All I know is Pierce Brosnan wore an Omega in Goldeneye, and I wanted one since.
Maybe I'll be smooth and handsome too if I wear one.

Hamilton looks good. I'd buy one. But if I'm buying something that will last me for decades, might as well buy the one I've always wanted. Maybe a good second watch. But I really only need one...

i guess they are good inbetween watches
but i have never really seen or handled a hamilton watch in person
just picture seen on the forum watch thread

i want a more sporty, dressed down watch
a "beater"
and keep my baume for more dressy occasion
until i can afford a real baller watch like the IWC portuguese

but since you like IWC's maybe a simple jazzmaster would suit you as opposed to a x-wind.

Although I would like a railroad, x-wind, khaki, jazzmaster, er...yea i like watches To think that's just within one brand

Hamilton's are like M3's of the watch world, affordable and get the job done nicely. the same as an m3 compared to a 911, would be like a hamilton to a omega/rolex.

IWC is my current dream...the kind I can afford someday (Patek is the one I most likely never will).
Very subtle, nothing shouty.

Yeah, I've got an external drive for that reason.

i told them i had 13 papers to write and such ... and they turned on team kill and killed me and told me to leave
so i'd come back after i finished a paper and play for 30 mins to an hour and then go back to work
ahhh those were the days
That is like, the sweetest thing I've ever heard.

the server was on Brown Univ
for some reason, NO ONE played counterstrike at dartmouth
plenty of guys played starcraft and stuff like unreal tournament, warcraft, and diablo
but seriously could not find anyone who played CS
i got 2 others to play CS with me and we'd always go play on the brown server
anyway
yeah
we played together enough that they really did look out for my best interest
and i managed to graduate on time

Gonna PM the guy.
How much do you think I should offer him?
I've never dealt with stuff like this before, though I've done a fair share or reading.

speedmaster is commonly sold so you should have an idea of the going rate

Interesting.
We had some pretty intense matches on the server at school. Was usually pretty packed.

i probably tried playing on cornell's server as well
and if it was usually packed then that is probably why i didn't play there and went to the brown server

hey so keep an eye out about the whole non-folddown seats to folddown seat swap
i will probably buy the back seats ... but not if there is going to be a problem with fitment
i'm not trying to get fold down seats to work on my car .. just want to swap since the stitching at the seams are coming apart on mine

I have an idea.
But I want to start low.
But not so low I get laughed at.
Low enough that I could get a good deal and will be taken seriously.
He's asking $2K.
