    Not all post need to be 2000 words.

    There are 52 weeks in the year. So one post a week and it is only 4 years to get to 200.

    Wonder how many pages this thread will go?

    Good morning Mike.:)

    9 years... that's about 3285 days??? (3285 days ÷ 49 posts)...::shy:: That means, on average, you post something 1 day in every 67 days. That suggests you spend the other 66 days thinking about other things..... and not thinking about posh watches! :eek:

    Ooooooh....They won't like that mate! :mad: ..... Not unless you want to buy something really nice! :D

    I believe you are grandfathered in before the 200 post count became tribal law- go for it.

    His account is just after the rule so no 200 posts still applies I’m afraid

    haha - its alright guys - I knew this post would lead me to being roasted a bit, I have my answer.
    Ive spent time away from the forum due to family life/ young children, never lost the bug for old watches and omega. I just tended to read a lot and the more I read the more I realise how little I know, therefore feel less able to advise people on posts. But hey there's always the social side of the forum

    Roast away. ::popcorn:::D

    Well, if you keep posting socially while looking for a Big triangle 166.024, you will make it 200 soon enough and have all the information you need to post a WTB for a Big Triangle 166.024 and be educated on what to look for when someone responds to your WTB with a Big Triangle 166.024

    If you look for a Seamaster 300 Big Triangle without date, shouldn't the reference be 165.024 ?

    Bet you had a few drinks and a pizza with your dog (or cat, budgie etc) once after riding a bike past a flash car, listening to some music.

    Hell that's 6 posts there. Throw in a Wruw whilst you were there that's 7. 8 if you were wearing shoes. 9 if you wore a tie or a hat...

    I think it's an ode to high-dollar watches he cannot afford, but drools over on forums: "Oh, you don't know me but you make me so happy"
