ill show you, but you must be careful for you might not be able to handle it.



If you spent 1/2 as much time looking for a real fucking job as you do on here bitching about how poor you are, you might have gotten into something lucrative by now. Either get off your ass and do something about your financial state, or stfu about it already. You've had a fucking motorcycle for about 5 minutes over the years you've been on here complaining about how fucking poor you are. Go deliver pizzas or newspapers instead of riding around here in your fucking Wambulance. Jeebus you're a tiring one note cunt.

It wasn't Liberace's. It was P-Diddy's.

All these time pieces are just fantastic... I started some research on a few of them and I gotta say I just can't believe how much money they are.... 3k, 4k.... I even saw one for 17k!

I just don't know anyone who wears a seventeen thousand dollar watch.


But they are so beautiful - makes me wish I had a thick wrist just to wear them......

Russian mil-type "aviator" watch. Poljot 17 Jewel movement. Good conversation piece.

No, do you want some more information on those watches? They're sort of fascinating, historically speaking.

The Poljot movement was the base for all time keeping instruments taken into space by the CCCP space program.

I just read the Wiki for it. Pretty interesting stuff. I might get a new battery and start wearing it.

I love Rolexes. Are you familiar of any $20 fakes that have the smooth movement of the second hand like an original? I had a former co-worker who claimed his 'Rolex' was a fake he picked up for $20 in NYC, 10 years earlier. However, for 10 years of continuous use, it looked like it was incredible shape and it had the smooth movement. I called BS on him.

I got one of these for Christamas in the 1st grade. I didn't even know who the hell Hopalong Cassidy was. Had the same band as in the 2nd pic.

THe cost is relative. You get what you pay for. I think for guys having an expensive watch is OK since they generally don't wear a lot of jewelry for fear of looking :ymca .

I have a few more that I didn't put in my post for obvious reasons (we all know that the majority of inmates here are criminals ) . To me it is a collection of things that I admire and appreciate.
