Who will buy the first watch of 2008???
Watches ordered in 2007 and delivered in 2008 are not counted.
Surely some one will order and take delivery (or buy from a B&M store) in the early part of 2008.
Post a pic as soon as the watch is purchased and have the distinction of the
First WIS of 2008!!!
(I might have to go shopping):scared:

I know for certain it will not be me! Wife gave me a Rolex for Christmas and our anniversary is January 1. So, you guessed it, I gave her one.:001_wub:
Since her money is her money and my money is her money I am dead broke now!:crying: Add to that, I just last week payed Tom for the WTF watch and I am as dry as a bone!:001_unsure: Oh, I forgot, I also have an Invicta coming but I only paid $49 for that one on clearance. And I may never see that one anyway because it has been in the infamous "processing" stage for days. I soon expect to hear, back ordered or out of stock. Which, may be a good thing after all.:laugh:

Hmm this could be a very interesting contest. I wonder who it will be and what it will be. Invicta? Rolex? These would be my guesses.
Ok so who all is going to be standing at the Sam's, Costco, or TJ's when they open in the morning? =) Hmm that's not a bad idea. Gotta go folks want to make sure I am closer to the door than my fellow members when the store opens. =) Now wheres my tent at...

Best Regards,

Not me. I may not purchase a watch this year, and instead invest the money. Yeah, I know. The right thing to do. With the economy in a bleak condition, I would rather have some more in the nest egg, than another watch.

Tried To Find Something At The Mall......

But Found Nothing Of Great Interest. Came Home And Ordered A Luminox 8409. Needed A Large Watch With A Rubber Dive Band And Orange Dial. With A 44mm Black 316 Pvd Case This Was Perfect.

Great looking watch and a :thumbup1: choice.
I believe that you are the first to order and may well be the winner of this prize-less contest unless someone buys one at a brick and mortar before yours arrives.
Way to "get the ball rolling" for the 2008 watch buying year!!

I broke down and called slopnbc today and guess what? The "clearance" item I ordered is on, "back order".:cursing: How can that be? I thought clearance meant, we have x number to sell and we are clearing them out. If you do not have the item, how can you be clearing them out?:confused1:

So foggy, I may be able to win this in 2009! No, that won't work because even if it take till January 2009, I ordered it in 2007 so I am out.:eek:hmy:

Can't win no matter what I do!:crying:

How about who will be the last person to buy one in 2008?
I may have a good run at that!:thumbup1:
Me too, TB! I called our fave Omega AD at about 4:30 PM EST on the 31st and ordered the Speedy Pro Moonwatch 3570.70 which should be inbound by now. :001_smile: What do I win? :001_tt1:

On January 2, 2008, I ordered a NIB Seiko "Black Monster". I paid, but don't have it in my possession yet... does that count?
