$175?

On Fossil's site that watch is $155


He probably bought it at some store, they gotta get as much mark up as possible for overhead. 20 bucks extra's not that bad for being able to see it in person and have it right away. Ordering it from the site might be extra for shipping too. I bought some chintzy electronic part from an old school electronics store. 25 bucks, checked ebay after, 10 bucks lol.

When Jay is able to bust someone else on any sort of falsity, you KNOW he's gonna do it. When your own truthfullness has been questioned repeatedly, turning the tables probably feels fucking glorious.

Gotcha, I was going off the pic you posted and not the link.

How does that thing work?

Like does it display messages?

it has no display.

You set it up for whatever notifications you want and when one comes in it vibrates and then points the hands at a number you have assigned. For example I  have it set up to vibrate and point to 9 whenever I get a text message. It is set to vibrate and point to 3 whenever i get a twitter notification. 

it has a step and sleep tracker. 

 

The buttons are programable to do things like control your music, take a picture, or find your phone, bunch of other stuff.

 

One of the things I like most about it is it does not need to be charged every day like a normal smart watch, it uses a standard coin style watch battery that lasts 6-12 months.

Sweet. So you can program it to notify you on all the Tee times for whatever members you're carrying clubs for on a given day? When you think about it that way, it's a good investment in your continued professional success.

Congrats on the watch PJ. I dig it and a good watch is not really an extravagance imo. 

Now you know where to spend the rest of that cabbage.

Lol at the negative, bitter assholes spewing venom to make themselves feel good.

 

Good on you, Jay. I'm not a watch guy, but looks pretty decent.

at the risk of repeating myself for the umpteenth time, I work 2000 hours a year same as everyone else that has a 40 hour work week.

It’s not a bad watch but really why do you do this to yourslef? You constantly buy things that aren’t a need then bitch later about being broke. 


As I said before, I think PeeJay should work his game up regarding how he dresses at work etc.

For a well-to-do club, I would think his employers would love a guy well dressed and decked out to be taking care of their members.

PeeJay should find a good tailor and instead of buying multiple suits off the rack, have a few he can rotate and shirts he can mix in with ties. Have those clothes be fit to him so he looks great. In short, spend the same amount of money on less items but have them look better.

A watch can be a great item to have to set off a suit or a look. 


Whoa...Daddy Warbucks just rolled into the thread!
