Did WRUW Motivate You into a New Watch?

I was perusing through the WRUW submissions this morning and came across a Casio MRW-200H that @erikswrist was showing off. As I‘m sure many of you can attest, the watch instantly spoke to me with its ubiquitous simplicity Casio does…oh so well! What did I end up doing? Well…I bought one!

Image

Where has this monochrome beast been all of my life? It’s built like a DW 5600 and an F91W got together in the most carnal way. The case feels tough like a G-Shock…while the generous resin band feels soft and forgiving. The second hand hits every marker with precision. The friction bezel rotates both ways. The hands and markers are easy to read…and has good lume. Plus, the MRW-200H is 100 meters WR!

Image

I bet you’re asking…”All of this must have cost a million dollars!” No sir! I picked it up from Walmart for $21.36! 

Has WRUW influenced a new watch purchase of yours? If so, show it to us…or one you want to get.

Oh goodness, those are a lot! But I guess, like you, my new Casio isn’t the only recent purchase fully influenced by this site. @Lemm77, @Candide3693 and @Strapmonster all had a hand in me recently acquiring my Armitron Griffy.

Oh yeah. AND one of those... Lol I'm TERRIBLE

Absolutely. I find series I never heard of before and have to go search for them. Which is why I've been trying to stay away from the WRUW thread lately.

I haven't been impacted yet by WRUW on WatchCrunch (thank goodness - could you imagine pursuing the watches from @JaeBust 🤑), however, on ## WRUW on WUS it has caused me to pick up the following watches:

For me it's actually worked the other way in-fact. Watches I thought I would love to buy and add to the collection, I've now seen them so many times that I have started to wonder why I like them in the first place and have now crossed them off my list. 

So thank you guys, you've saved me thousands 🤣

I will confess though, I still want an Omega Aqua Terra, I still drool whenever someone post a picture of one on there wrist 🤤

I think WRUW allows sharing of the joy of wearing your favourite watch today from your collection with people around the world who appreciates watches. I see so many awesome watches in WRUW, but no it doesn’t motivate me to buy them. For me, the motivating factor is when I have saved enough cash for my next watch.

Yes…two type of watches that I bought was influenced by WC in general that I would have not bothered to research or buy are the following:

The Negroni I am very surprised and pleased with like @ChronoGuy saw someone‘s WRUW and @JaeBust influenced me to get a yellow gshock and after that it’s a downward spiral 😆…oh and these guys @HotWatchChick69 @BigIona and @Edge168n pushed me to my fist GS 😂

I have probably been influenced by what I see on WRUW, but I know discussions and reviews on the site have influenced me by helping me to decide on completing a purchase of a watch. For example, I was on the fence about the Bulova Devil Diver but did wind up getting one after a discussion on this site.

Image

I am really glad I did. I think, based on some comments in the past, I am probably more guilty of influencing, rather than being influenced by, other members on this site. 😂 Hell, it was the comment by @DariusII that alerted me to this thread! 🤣

Well after reading this comment thread I might be shopping this weekend now. 

·

I 100% attribute the purchase of my SLGH009:

to @HotWatchChick69 and WC in general. 

·

fortunately no, lol. i usually feel in love with wristwatch from youtube video, i dont know why 😍

·

Like @TonyXXX , I actually find the WRUW has the opposite effect on me. I feel sated when i see normal humans wear watches I'm curious about.
