Beautiful watches, and I just got your thread title! Congrats on the 10K! You were helpful to me when I first started posting too.
selkie, i wrote a long reply about when you first joined and how i really liked your name and how because of your name, i thought you had black hair. you''re a selkie after all!

anyway...suffice it to say...i think you picked a cool name, even if you don''t have black hair.


thanks so much for the congrats!

maisie, thanks so much! when are you coming this way so we can have some fun?


monarch, i like the citizen too. it is just exactly the style i was wanting. i''ve never owned a citizen before and i''m really curious about this eco-drive thing. we sure do have plenty of sun here to keep it running! as for the tag....no, i''m pretty darn sure that''s the only wrist shot you''re gonna get! thanks for the congrats.

sister, what would we have done?
we brought the party, that''s for sure! i think it''s time for a round of drinks!
cheers to being heres!

No, I''m not one of the ''dark ones'' (as they say in Roan Inish), more of a redhead! One of these days I''ll find a cool selkie avatar.

I just noticed there''s a new member named Kelpie, too.

belle, I can''t tell you the relief I felt when I saw the second watch, because that meant the first one wasn''t for you....


I love your watch, very understated (which I love) and pretty. Just lurvely.

Congrats, you earned it. Wear it in good health!

Okay, I am slow today - I thought both were for you at first and thought wow that red one is really big on her little wrist!! I really love them both and bet your hubby will too! Is he aware of his, or is it a surprise?

Hi, Belle! I am relieved to see that I am not the only one who couldn''t decide what I wanted! I love the watches! I have a Citizen Eco-drive and I think they are terrific! I don''t love the style of mine, though, and recently went to try some others on. I can''t decide if I tried one exactly like yours or not, but I was looking at very similar styles. I''ll have to go to the BN site to see if I can tell. I debate a lot about watches...I know you have an Ebel, too. But it seems like the Citizens look good and keep perfect time, so it is hard for me to justify spending a couple thousand on a stainless steel watch!!! (I also did not know BN had watches or I might have gone in that direction, too.)

Congratulations again on the 10,000, and I am very proud to be in such good company!

Well Belle, at the minute it seems pretty inconceivable that I will be coming that way anytime soon.... however not even Rodents of Unusual Size could keep me from visiting just as soon as I can.

In the meantime though, just remember.... Wuv - twue wuv - will fowow you fowever. So tweasure your wuv.

Belle, I love your choices for your gift. I have an ecodrive and I love it. It is smaller than yours same shape though and no diamonds. It has a blue and pink MOP face. I love it. I''ve had it for 2 years now and no problems.

The watch you got for your DH is seriously cool looking. Congrats on your posts hitting the magic mark and for all of your help.

thanks sharon and mrs s!
gwendolyn, yeah....i knew people wouldn''t get too excited about watches, so i had to try and build up just a little interest.

selkie, i meant to tell you before that i think your current avatar is great
hehehehehe. i''ll be looking forward to the seklie too.
thanks for stopping by emptorres
sum, i''m glad to hear that you love your eco drive!
the more i read about it, the more excited i am.
lynn, i love having you here more.
cheers! xoxooxoxo
thanks patiently and strm!
hey isaku! i almost didn''t recognize you with that new avatar! thanks for the congrats!
mara, i know you have something in the works.....spill it!

ellen....lmao. glad you like *my* watch
did you ever decide which of your heirlooms you would keep?
michelle, thanks! i am really happy with my picks. it''s good to know the eco drive has a good rep!
hey :)! i''ve missed your smiling face! yeah....i think the tag is a wee bit large for me
it wasn''t a suprise, he picked it out.
thanks so much bee*!
sparkalicious, kellyfish, uclabelle, scarleta, tacori....thanks so much for the congrats!

ds, it''s a hard decision isn''t it!? people would just laugh if they knew the range of possibilities i was going through!
it was crazy. i am really happy with my choice though. i have been wanting a tank style watch for a long time and this was a great opportunity to finally take the plunge. this is exactly the shape/style i was imagining in my little mind, so i think it''s perfect. i was a little hesitant getting the citizen because i didn''t have any experience with them but obviously, they get good reviews and the price was very reasonable. i''ve had to change the battery several times on my ebel and i am forever having to change the date to keep it on the right day
so, in that respect, it''s been a litte ''high maintenance''. i really like watches, i consider them functional jewelry but like you, i have a hard time with the large price discrepencies!

i hope you find a watch you *love*. if you want to know anything about this style, let me know and i''ll give what details i can. i can even make sure i can get some better pics if you would like.

thanks for the congrats and the feeling is mutual.... i am honored to be among such a great group of people!
i can''t wait to see what you are getting!

steph, minims, thanks! yes, i will always think of you when i check the time!

h, thanks you! suprise!...i''m sweet

dks, thanks and glad you love it! and the kudos for creative thinking from the queen of creativeness??.....wow....i don''t know what to say!
....thanks!

mauwage...mauwage..... lol maisie....you''re IN! i guess i''ll just have to come there for a visit. can we make some trouble...er....fun over there?

shay, thanks so much. the face on mine is bluey and pinkey too. i couldn''t get the colors to show up in the pics...granted, i was just snapping away in excitement as i opened the package, maybe after i get it sized and start wearing it for reals i''ll get some good pics. i''m glad to hear that yours is still going strong! this watch is starting to have a lot to live up to!
