You could get one for $23 this Thursday if you're a lucky ducky.

It's a very nice watch.
Have you ever done that before? Looks interesting.

Iím on the playoff bubble of 3 of my 4 teams. My teams are so inconsistent. Each of them have scored anywhere from 75-190 in any given week.

Not that I was even in a position to buy them right now,but both the houses I had looked at are off the market and that makes me upset. Being a poor sucks.

Cut your salary in half, keep everything else the same. Then youíd be poor.

I've entered many raffles but have yet to win one.

I thought it was odd to see the exact watch in two completely different places on the internet so I figured I'd link you in for the off chance you'd want to buy a spot for $23 on a 1/100 shot.

You seem like the kind of guy who likes a neutral EV long odds gamble and wouldn't mind lighting $23 on fire. I'm sure you recognize this isn't your standard to-go fountain drink splurge kind of situation here.

Donít get me wrong here. If the process was as simple as ďput match to bills,Ē I would have done it. I just donít know how the system works and didnít want to spend the time to figure it out. I will definitely buy that watch within 24mos, and I wonít feel the slightest bit bad about it. I ****ing love the knockoff I bought.

Some people drive $80k trucks, I drive a mid size sedan. Iím only spending a tiny fraction of that difference on this watch!

Donít doubt my ability to rationalize stupid shit.

-Go to the subreddit at least one minute before the raffle is scheduled to go live.
-save this to your clipboard, “one random spot” or however many spots you plan on taking
-refresh until you see the new thread
-post the copied phrase in the reply box
-wait for 2 PM’s; first will show you your assigned number, the second will give you the PayPal address to send funds
-send PayPal friends and family only
-reply to the second PM with the info it asks for
-sweat your spot

The most coveted watches will fill in under a minute. The Rolex Milgauss from this morning filled almost instantly.

I’m all for spending money on a luxury watch. I have a segregated savings account I’m slowly funding with the intention of buying a Speedmaster pro but I could swing back to wanting a seamaster planet ocean before I get the money saved.

Hey, no skin off my back, I donít care for it much, either. Thatís just the watch I thought of when Strat said he had a knockoff.

Lose my shit is a tad strong. Iíd just make fun of you for having three thousand dollars in $150 watches. Those were decent looking watches

Some of yours are ugly. My only thought on it, for me, is iíd rather have a nice watch that is timeless, instead of a bunch of cheap ones, like womenís costume jewelry, to be switched out based on your outfit

I am probably going to wait for the $150 watch to stop, and then buy the real deal. Assuming I donít win this raffle. I really donít need more than one watch, and donít want to buy a winder.

I find having a watch with the date is super helpful in my day to day life.

i find i often look at my watch, but almost never to ascertain the time or date. its mostly an attempt to look cool at the store while in line near a hottie with a body.
