In all honesty, I’ve always done well but I’ve always been a working class person so I damn near fainted when I saw that last price! Lol
Then boom! It hit me…
ALL of the dependable, battle tested watches are in the 3 figure cost range and the cheaper ones are shipped from china and take between 2-4 weeks to arrive!
Not to mention I’d never heard of the cheaper brands and the websites didn’t seem too trustworthy so I figured their watches couldn’t be any better.
So I ended up not buying anything, I wasn’t going to let who knows who from who knows where separate me from my hard earned money for something that would probably break, if it ever even came.
Especially because I had been involved in the trade industry for many years and knew that they were marking the prices on all of these watches WAY up.
I’m okay with them making a profit but I’m not okay with them ripping me off.
Now… I get it, some watches have more features and some brands have battle tested and refined their products over the years, but prices should not be marked up 10-20x.
Especially not for fellow patriots.
So a few weeks passed by and I encountered a mission where the features of some of the watches I wanted to buy would have came in handy and I remembered the watches.
Then a few weeks later, again.
Later on that last day I was listening to a motivational speech from one of my heroes. (A patriot/Hero/Motivational Human Being/Total Badass)
Then BOOM! it hit me….
