Are you going to see if someone can make your dead Mac's hard drive readable, so you can at least get your data files off of it?

I hope you didn't lose any family photos.

Did you decide to keep the Citizen BN2029, since it didn't sell on eBay?

The one guy who bid on the BN2029 was from Brazil and I was only excepting US buyers. Also, before I knew the bidder was from out of US, I felt sad and a bit conflicted about selling the BN2029, so when I banned the bidder I decided to take the Promaster off the market. It's such a unique watch, a real counterpoint to the more traditional divers I wear like the OSD and Sumo.

A friend is coming over next week to help me start my old Apple. If it's gone, then a lot of family photos are gone though they were posted on facebook.

Keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to get the hard disk to boot in your old Mac in order to get your data files off of it. You can have someone remove it from the old Mac and attach it via a USB adapter to your new Mac. I'd try this before giving up. I'd hate to lose all the data on the old computer.

A fun post - I suppose it means I'm a real watch nerd that I enjoyed reading it. I'll post something similar by tomorrow.

Anyhow, a few comments.

1) 11 watches isn't too bad. Still feeling rotation anxiety?
2) I remember at one point you were on the verge of selling the OSD. A good reminder.
3) Zixen in black...do you mean the black bezel? Or he black dial with silver like mine? I really like the black bezel because it has lumed markers and is a "lume fiesta," but a huge part of the Zixen appeal (for me) is that amazing steel bezel. But again, go check them out in the metal.
4) I'm not sure if the gap was intentional, or subconscious, but it seems there's a bit drop-off between 4 and 5. My guess is that you'll eventually sell 5-7 as you find yourself not wearing them. You'll keep the Monster and EcoZilla for nostalgia sake, and as great beaters.
5) Deep Blue is like upscale Invicta. As I think I said to you, there's something candy-like about their watches. They have some fun designs - remember the Abyss I had with that crazy build? - but they're all showers and not growers.

The Deep Blue could very well sell in 2015 to help fund the Megalodon. I prefer the SS bezel on the Nitrox but worry about the ETA movement in terms of service costs.

But you wouldn't need it serviced for 5-10 years, and how many watches do you own from 5 years ago? One, I think?

herculodge

Fair point. But since the place is so close to my house, I think I would be well served to go in there and give them a look in person.

jonnybardo

Definitely - that's quite convenient. Check out the Trimix as well - I love the orange dial.
