Boss Orange '1930s Inspired' Chronograph Watch
I often shop out of 'vanity'...but last evening, I have to shop for necessity. My very old Diesel watch finally RIP after faithful service of almost 6 long years. I tried to revived my dying 'comrade' by changing the battery...but after 'struggling' for one more day, it passed on.
Hence, moving on from my 'grief'(grief mostly coming from having to spend money again!)...I hop down to Takashimaya to see what good deals I can pick up since it's their additional 10% off promotion for DBS cardmembers this weekend. Scouting around for a new 'comrade at arms' (we go shopping conquests all the time while keeping track of precious time!), I finally found the suitable candidate. Introducing my 1930's inspired Boss Orange Chronograph watch:-)
I am the kinda of person who likes big watch faces, retro designs and steel bracelets...so this fits in perfectly to my requirements. The slightly 'tarnished' effect on the metal parts add to a vintage look. While the copper crowns on the side is interesting and evokes an industrial feel. It reminds me of 1930's pilots:-) I just get this feeling.
The best part of my search for this new 'comrade at arms' is the hefty 50% discount! Since I have a DBS credit card, I get an additional 10% off to make the deal sweeter. Needless to say, I have to 'recruit' it immediately.
Cheap sales, good bargains...but most of all, a functional watch that will serve me well daily:-)
