Guy must have known his watches. I would have never known, and it's not obnoxiously blingy. I had to do a little investigative research using the photo's URL, since I know next to nothing about watches, but I realize now you could probably trade it for a Campy equipped Merckx or De Rosa.

#1: Diesel Nissan pickup truck with rust.
#2: Watch from K-Mart
#3: Clothes from Sears, and if you're lucky, the trousers won't tear the first time you sit on them.
#4: Light a stoogie in their face if they try to give you the business.

-Kurt

Not much happening in my neck of the woods either Jim...at least on Craigslist.

It never occurred to me that what I wear could effect haggling. I've always seen it as they'll either accept my price or they won't. Thankfully I almost always look like a dirty bum.
