My daddy’s birthday’s around the corner. For the last month or so, I was stumped on what to get him. Last night, after talking with Mum, I received some suggestions — some strange ones and some helpful ones. I took those suggestions and woke up earlier than normal to go to the PX before work. I headed straight for the watch section there, and I spent about fifteen minutes staring at all the watches there.
I honestly had no clue what was a good watch. The jewellery lady there wasn’t very helpful either.
At first I was intrigued by this watch that was like under $200, a brand I cannot remember its name for my life. But I saw that it was made in China. ~_~;; My mother recently blew up at me for buying a REAL Converse shoe . . . a shoe that was made in China. Uh, Mum? I know you and 99% of the Koreans think Chinese-made products are crap . . . but, uh, it’s not a fake. It’s just made in China because it’s cheaper for the company!
ANYWAY. I then looked at a Victorinox Swiss Army watch. This is Daddy’s new watch, a 24704, Officer’s 1884 watch. (And Macy’s website is being weird, so here’s an alternate link.) The cost? $279 . . . see I bought something outrageously expensive for Mum last year. Now it was Daddy’s turn. Though he did say, “Don’t you ever buy something that expensive again!”
Time to buy something expensive for me! Muhahahaha.
