***Jim Skelton is a Free Agent????***

Maybe Eyal and the Invicta Team has decided to provide him with an offer that he can't refuse...If in fact that he is a Free Agent. Good Luck to Jim w/whatever venture he decides to invest himself (in). Have a good one and Happy Collecting ALL. __________________

He just bought a big house. You would think he would have signed a new contract before he did that. He likes Florida maybe he'll go back and go to HSN that has better CS and free shipping. If he leaves Shop will be hurting fast. __________________

He might be getting ready to start his own show like Lior. A watch show everyday with Jim. Or maybe he is going into his own watch company. Speculating is fun.

Well, well. It's much too early to speculate, but I'm intrigued. When you think of all that has transpired in the past 6-8 months, it does make you wonder. It could be a April fouls joke. I hope that it is; but a lot of past coincidences would make a lot more sense, if it were true. Time will tell the story though. __________________

I think he is going to start making watches... Look at Mr. Fox "NFW" he makes a killer living doing what he is doing and he has controle of design and price point. Jim has enough people he has worked with in the past that he could start his own line and run with it... Never hurts to have invicta as a vendor for movements ect, Just a thought.. chase16 View Public Profile Send a private message to chase16 Find all posts by chase16 Add chase16 to Your Contacts #24 Today, 01:39 PM

You could kind of tell when he left WatchGeeks, something just wasn't right, and now this. It could be anything, he could have been angry his show was cut in half Sunday night, or it could just be a falling out with management, we will never know.

I just know that without Jim I would still be wearing those puny little non-descript excuses for a watch. I bought my first watch from Jim- the Skelton (oops Skeleton)Russian Diver and have never considered ever looking back. Thank you Jim for the new hobby and addiction.

Just fishing with this but I just sent a Tweet to Eyal asking him when Jim was starting with Invicta. I'll let you know what he says back. __________________

It might not be anything bad as far as the reason he is leaving so I will not speculate on that. I just hope they find somebody as knowledgeable to replace him. Watching some of the other hosts can be cringe fest. Boboy View Public Profile

Jim and Shop both posted tha the is no longer with Shop. Jim wrote a note that he couldn't say much at this time. He probably signed and got a severance package $$$ that doesn't let him say much. Pretty common standard legal lang. I'll miss him but he's to good to not wind up with a great deal. Good Luck Jim and God Bless.

Not very good news for people who like watch shows with entertainment, and the ability to show a watch in their best light. Hope he gets a good gig in the industry. My guess is watch designing is his gig. Imperious sure had his type of design cues all over them. TV shopping channels other then ShopNBC have had minimal success selling watches being HSN and QVC don't really feauture upscale products. He will be missed for what he helped create at Shop, which is a rabid fan base. Best of luck is all I can say for both him and Shop. curiousgeorge View Public Profile Send a private message to curiousgeorge Find all posts by curiousgeorge Add curiousgeorge to Your Contacts #83 Today, 02:27 PM Join Date: Jun 2008 Location: NJ Posts: 505

I had always been appreciative of the level of access that we had here to a professional with the level of knowledge in his craft that Jim has. He has always been kind and taken lots of personal time to manage things like the "Ask Jim" section that was here.


As a bit of a fan, and maybe somebody who on occasion felt like I was chatting with a friend, I sure hope all is ok with Jim and look forward to hearing that he's doing something that will work out even better for him. __________________ "Watch... and pray." watchcoach View Public Profile Send a private message to watchcoach Find all posts by watchcoach Add watchcoach to Your Contacts #84 Today, 02:27 PM Join Date: Nov 2009 Location: Las Vegas Nv.

I don't know if we'll see Jim pushing product anymore. I think he has more upside with his photography, which I think we all respect and enjoy.

collecting is kidding themselves. I think it could be argued, factually, that Shop capitalized on the watch shows once they discovered how much to the bottom line they could bring. The marketing and shear number of shows dwarfed what they did back in the "old days." Jim only works a very few hours a week and even admits that he could not possibly "do it all" and all the hours that the shows have now grown to. True, he had a Show with his name on it, so what? So did Charla Rhines at one point and look what happened to her. All I am suggesting is that one person can't lead the whole team, no more than any one NBA player can make a team. The way Shop is positioned with their watch talent will doubtless allow them to see great results in the years ahead. So, yes, they will do fine and their numbers should not suffer in the least. Let's put it this way, If I were a Shop exec, I would not be filing for chapter 11 quite yet. __________________ "There's a difference in livin' and livin' well..." -George Strait watchdude1 View Public Profile Send a private message to watchdude1 Find all posts by watchdude1 Add watchdude1 to Your Contacts #100 Today, 02:40 PM

Wow, that's too bad. Jim was really the only reason I watched the shows. Not to say the other people weren't up to snuff, but I loved Jim's antics and knowledge. I'm not sure I'll keep watching now, but we'll see. Good luck to Jim in whatever life has in store for him. He'll be missed from here and the Shop. Russ Join Date: Nov 2009 Location: Las Vegas Nv.

I don't think Shop really cares how they did it or what is going to happen to them now. It could be it for them. I'm sure Eyal counts alot on selling there. This could also hurt him bad. In his last show yesterday he said his next show wasn't till Wednesday night. Which would be the TTV with Mikeal. __________________

So did Charla Rhines at one point and look what happened to her. All I am suggesting is that one person can't lead the whole team, no more than any one NBA player can make a team. The way Shop is positioned with their watch talent will doubtless allow them to see great results in the years ahead. So, yes, they will do fine and their numbers should not suffer in the least. Let's put it this way, If I were a Shop exec, I would not be filing for chapter 11 quite yet. Were going to have to agree to disagree on this one. How many members and customers are at this site alone. Sorry but that's marketing smarts. Jim helped create something that had never been done with the audience before, he appealed to their base sensibilities. Made it seem fun to collect and somehow cool which no host has ever done selling watches before. It could be argued that when Tim left on his own accord the network he was first part of WSS featured many hours of watches. Many. Tanked within 3 months. I like all the hosts, they do just fine, but to say that Jim wasn't a driving force would be by my guess off by a little. Yes they will be fine, but remember the Brouhaha's that used to break out over hosts who needed to learn what they were selling. Who do you think forced them to up their game. Tim is great but he doesn't have the time Jim did to work more hours, being he has music interests, and other vehicles and lives in Nashville.If you think Daniel and Skip, will up sales more power to that opinion. Shawn has always worked late night his whole career so that's out.

I wish Jim much love and luck ... For a guy in his 30's he showed a lot of moxy and wit !! At times, he was a little gruff and some may not have liked his style, but he is a consumate entertainer and has a solid future somewhere !! I'm sure we will be privy to it through his facebook page pretty soon .............. as for the legal risks if he was allowed to say something on the air, plse, I don't think Jim was a threat to say anything harsh on the air. He is mature in that way and would not self deface himself or the shop on live TV. If anything, I think it would have been a sentimental moment we all could have shared and enjoyed. He certainly, I think, if he had the opportunity given him would have chosen to say a few nice words .. Blue You are correct Ralph .. whatever it is it was sudden. He did say his next show was Wedn. .. Blue mrblue View Public Profile Send a private message to mrblue Find all posts by mrblue Add mrblue to Your Contacts #130 Today, 03:02 PM

Look maybe he left on his own. I dont think i would want to be associated with the Shop at a time when everyone was undercutting their prices. I really dont see how they make a sale with Invicta Thursday and Sunday Runs plus the others like WOW and DOD. Maybe he was smart enough to get out of his own accord.

I liked watching Jim and Mike because they were a comedy team, but I didn't buy any Invicta because of the pricing / shipping / tax thing. Jim will be fine regardless of what happens. IMHO it's hard to buy on the Shop anyway, when I can find the same watches on DoD's with no tax and free shipping, it adds up fast. __________________

I kind of suspected something was up when Tim came back to Shop last year, Jim starts up heavily on Face Book, Jim leaves the Forum, and now Skip is on Shop. These events were telling me that Jim's days at the Shop could be coming to an end. For what ever reason, Jim will do what's right for Jim, and will seek out new avenues surrounding him. Good Luck to you Jim. __________________ MAY THE LUME BE WITH YOU! Another Day! .. Another Watch!

Well ............. like'em or dislike'em, one thing is for sure. Life will not be the same without Skelton on Shop, LOL As has been stated, taught many of us alot about timepieces and when push came to shuv, nobody could move watches like he could. Somehow, I have a feeling that we haven't seen the last of him in the watch community especially since he's still accessible on Facebook. I for one am curious as to his direction. __________________

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but isn't Jim behind the Imperious line of watches, with Invicta financially backing it? Perhaps that has something to do with it?

Ninetynine percent of the people on this forum did not know Jim personally. He was a salesman first, second, and last (in my humble opinion). His main function was to seperate your hard earned money from you. He was very successful with that. I see no need to thank him for that success.

I just heard the bad news about Jim leaving....I didn't know Jim personally but He was like a friend to me...He was certainly one of the most genuine charismatic professionals I have ever known..Since joining watchgeeks and becoming a regular viewer/customer of Shop...I have come to know a great deal about horology because of Jim.. Jim will probably never know how much he has changed my life and helped cultivate my interests in watch collecting...I'm sure will never know the real reason why Jim has departed from Shop but I doubt there is anyone who will be able to fill Jim's shoes as well as he could...I seriously hope Shop was not stupid enough to have Jim fired..because that would be a big mistake/bad business decision for them in my book...I trust his departure was of his own doing...He most find his own path in life which for some has many turns..I wish him and his family the best in life...Shop and watchgeeks will never be the same... I will miss you Jim..I wish you and your family the best of luck in all your future endeavors.. God Speed Jim S you are the best Jon

Having spent 41 years on the Broadcast business it's my guess that either Shop or Jim decided not to renew his contract. That would make any non-compete clause he may have had null & void, freeing him to negotiate with anyone else. Maybe Wing or Larry, maybe both together, are thinking of launching their own watch channel, aka Lior? Or maybe Lior will make him an offer he can't refuse to join him on WOW! Maybe Eyal will offer him an executive position with Invicta? All of this is purely speculation on my part! Join Date: Apr 2008 Location: Rocklin, CA Posts: 711

Yes they will be fine, but remember the Brouhaha's that used to break out over hosts who needed to learn what they were selling. Who do you think forced them to up their game. Tim is great but he doesn't have the time Jim did to work more hours, being he has music interests, and other vehicles and lives in Nashville.If you think Daniel and Skip, will up sales more power to that opinion. Shawn has always worked late night his whole career so that's out. Good luck to all involved is all I hope for. well said

WOW! My head is spinning!

Some interesting thoughts come to mind-Did any one ever consider that maybe Jim "IS" the Imperious Watch Company? -It's funny that everyone except Jim went to Basel; Eyal, Jill, Michael, and Tim. -Maybe Jim did get an offer he couldn't refuse from another employer? -This thing with WTWJ being cut down in time has happened more than once. I'm trying to remain unbiased in this. Again, these are just thoughts. __________________

jim leaving

I remember when Tim left, abruptly, I was shocked. Never thought I would buy another watch from SNBC. Then Jim came and after a while, he was the watch man in my book. Didnt Tim then try to do his own shopping network with a few other hosts at the time only to fall flat? Jim is a creative sort of spirit, thats what makes him interesting in my opinion. Im sure he has something luring him and he will do great. OR...................... Maybe he is the Charlie Sheens Replacement on 2 & 1/2 men. Or with his personality it will be 3 MEN. LOL Go Jim, have fun, enjoy you family, get out of the snow and ride those bikes.

Has anyone thought that Invicta hired him? Maybe the bottom rung on the ladder has opened up. Mike or Jill may have moved up and Jim would be a great choice.

I'm relatively new to watch collecting, started just shy of two years ago. Funny thing about the watch shows was they became addicting, so much so that I have the Shop programmed on my remote as one of my favorite channels (and I know I'm not alone). First watch I brought on Shop was an Invicta Russian Diver Quinotaur because this guy with glasses and a beard, who seemed bigger than life was amping me up about buying this watch. I gotta tell you Jim will be missed because when there's a watch TTV, there's probably no one in the building more excited than Jim. Tim is kewl, he's got a (compared to Jim) real laid back attitude regarding the TTV's, but dude knows his stuff. The good news with no more Jim is I can have my Sunday afternoon's back (no more Watch Time with Jim Skelton), but I'm not gonna lie I miss the dude already. Come to think of it something has to be up his sleeve (right). I'm sure we will see Jim sooner

No need to speculate on the reasons behind Jim's departure from the Shop. I bought my first watch--a Jacques Lemans--4 years ago, because of Jim's presentation on the Shop. I've been a fan ever since. He was extremely informative, and I found his passion was certainly addictive. I wish him the very best, and I'll look forward to seeing him very soon selling incredible timepieces.

What makes you think he will be back..He is going to host Lior's new WOW show...it's all over the net..I'm not sure if his decision to leave Shop was mutual or not..but I highly doubt we


will see him pop up again on Shop..As for whether or not he decides to drop back and say hi who knows... hopefully it was not Shop that gave Jim the boot...Jim's departure may soon spell disaster for Shop if other vendors decide to leave as well...Jim possessed a great deal of talent and charisma and will be difficult to replace...I will miss Jim very much..this is not good news Jon Quote:

I will continue to buy from shop and watch the shows if there's a watch I like, it seems to me that quite a few vendors have left though, Chase-Durer, Philip, Renato and I do like Invicta but I like variety of brands and I think that if WOW tv takes off it would not surprise me if SWI left also, there are quite a few hosts that know about watches so if they have the watch I will buy

This is all speculation of course, but I thinks it's safe to assume a few things. Jim left WG.s, and since it is Invicta sponsored, I don't thinks he'll be working with them. Now he's left the Shop. And before he left, all but Invicta had fewer shows or left all together. IMO the profit margin on watches is dropping, and neither the vendors or the Shop are willing to take a cut. So we may actually be seeing the end of watch shows on the Shop. That would also help explain Jim's leaving. The times they are a changing, and for us geeks I'm not sure for the better. __________________ " He didn't lose the race, he just ran out of laps." brent View Public Profile Send a private message to brent Find all posts by brent Add brent to Your Contacts #203 Today, 04:04 PM

How about that he is the real owner of Imperious? Makes as much sense as anything. Eyal financially backs Jim for his creative design and gives him access to his suppliers. It could be that it was a conflict of interest. Perhaps they gave him six months from the product launch. Not really far fetched if you really think about it. I wish him well in what ever endeavor he embarks on. I see somebody else has an Imperious theory. Well played.

Interesting theory...If this is true...Isn't is safe to assume that a large portion of Shop's sales are due in large part to watch sales....Speculative of course but if Shop were to abandon watch sales from their inventory lineup...It would spell the end on ShopNBC... Jon Quote:

No probably Sensa weight loss. He has lost a good deal of weight on top of quiting smoking. This is not easy to do.

Jim was about the last reason I watched and shopped the Shop, won't name names but can't stand most of the hosts when they present watches. And no offense, only Tim is bearly tolerable IMO. With Jim leaving and the SNBC price escalations, I'm probably done there... __________________

AT the end of his show last night I recall Jim saying that his next show would be Wednesday night. I don't believe he would have said that if it were not true at the time. I think something happened today to facilitate his departure from snbc. JMO... __________________

Well its time to cut out the middleman, namely SNBC. If Invicta leaves SNBC that's going to mean hard times for SNBC. Watch revenue is a material number. __________________

Just my opinion, but I have seen this coming. With the addition of Skip Connelly doing the Invicta shows, Jim leaving Watchgeeks, and now he has left SNBC.

I will miss being yelled at :)

Well I for one will miss Jim. I happened to come across one of his watch shows around 2 years ago and the rest is history. I think Tim and Shawn W. do a great job at presenting watches also. My wife will be thrilled that Jim is gone ! She really did not like his voice But I wish him well and I am sure it will not be long before we the shaved monkey and other farm animals appear with him on the TV somewhere soon. My credit cards will begin to cool down now that he is off the air. Gods Speed Jim and only the best for the future ! TomRaz View Public Profile Send a private message to TomRaz

I knew it!

I had a bad feeling about him all of a sudden leaving the Forum. He was one of the founders for pete's sake. He took pride in being in this Forum and I believe he really enjoyed photographing all the new upcoming watches as well as interacting with fellow WG's This really sucks, I got into watch collecting because of Jim. I said it before and I will say it again, I miss him and I think ShopNBC will too!

Well, this comes to a surprise to me because just a little while back when he announced his departure from WatchGeeks he said that he wasn't leaving ShopNBC Quote:

Originally Posted by jskelton Thanks everyone. Yes, the only contact will be via email or my Facebook pages. I will maintain a membership here for a while, but will not be actively posting. To dispel any rumors: No, I am not leaving ShopNBC. Something must have went down in the last Month or so after his initial post saying that he wasn't leaving ShopNBC...I think that it must have been his decision though because not even a year ago Jim posted about signing a new contract w/ ShopNBC and moved into a new home not far from where he was prior...it just seemed like he was positioned to be at ShopNBC for years to come. It was Jim that got me started in watch collecting on ShopNBC, and I'll miss all of his antics, but Tim's style has really grown on me (I wasn't familiar with Tim prior to his return to ShopNBC), plus I like watching Shawn's watch shows, and when Jim was missing in action due to his throat surgery last year, Daniel Green filling in for many watch shows has grown on me a lot also, and I think those factors alone will make missing Jim on ShopNBC a lot easier for me personally. Like some other's have mentioned, if I had to take a guess of where he could end up next, I'd say World of Watches with Lior as well because having someone that's knowledgeable about watches (in addition to Lior himself) would go a long way. If Jim were to join Lior, I think it's possible they could start having more than just Weekend shows. Whatever he does, or wherever he turns up, I wish him well.

I'm really gonna miss the watch time shows with JS on Sunday nights. At least you knew every Sunday there'd be a watch show, now what ? Was the Spring Forward event the last hurrah ? ShopNBC will never be the same. JS is a major reason for my rekindled watch passion. Hopefully he stays in the industry.

There is a site that has been saying he will be leaving, but it is an inflammatory site, so won't post the link. If you do a search it will come up. I thought the blogger was a kook,, but looking at it now, he seemed to know something. Definitely will miss Jim. __________________ You mean what time is it now? tampa8 View Public Profile Send a private message to tampa8 Find all posts by tampa8 Add tampa8 to Your Contacts #280 Today, 05:55 PM

I'm very surprised that this went down. If you read his FB posts of the last 24hrs one would presume that as of last night he was a man happy about work and no hit of anything brewing. His FB updates since breaking the news tells us he's ok and that it's not a sad day in his


house. In all 11 pages I have burned my eyes reading I saw no one mention that not too long ago he posted several times over other speculation that he was with the Shop for the long hall as he had just inked a new contract (new car/house), anyone remember this? All that aside, I truly wish the man well. I am one of the Geeks that he took the time to email and address a Shop issue for and I still find it amazing that he took that on not being a part of the business CS side. __________________

I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this, but on his FB, Jim's WOTD is the Jailbreak with the comment: "WOTD: Imperious Jail Break. We're bustin outta here...." According to FB that was about 6 hours ago, so around 3 PM EST... I think that was before the official announcement.

If he's going to work for Invicta, wouldn't he have to deal with the shop at some point unless Invicta is also leaving. But why leave Watchgeeks considering it's an Invicta site now. Or no?

I will greatly miss Jim his product knowledge and high interest in the whole personalness of watch collecting is so right on track. Is Invicta going to start there own Show or sales network. It would be just the kind of our-of-the-box thinking of Eyal and Invicta. Wait and see ?????? __________________

There are many opinions about Jim, some good, some not so good; but the bottom line is that he was responsible for bringing a group of strangers together and turning WG a community. It's dissapointing that a few would choose to take a shot at him on tbe forum he created.

Jim, you are the one that encourage my late fathter and myself to start collecting together. You have a great wit about you and where ever you go, you will be admired-for your honesty, your dedication, and your stick to your guns attitude. Time will not be the same without you, but I am glad to say that I had a chance to learn from Jim Skelton-a man whose love for time moved and inspired a nation of watch enthusiasts around the world.

I remember that thread as well..I guess the 'speculation' was unfounded.i.e. there was no contract renewal..no negotiation and Jim had already decided to sever ties with ShopNBC for better prospects having handed over the ownership of watchgeeks to Invicta.. Either way I still miss the guy Jon "In all 11 pages I have burned my eyes reading I saw no one mention that not too long ago he posted several times over other speculation that he was with the Shop for the long hall as he had just inked a new contract (new car/house), anyone remember this?" __________________

well I am in shock...Jim helped me out personally more than a couple of times when I had an issue with a watch...no other host has ever done that with anyone..as for all this talk about Jim on WOW tv...I cant find anything about that on the web anywhere...so who is sayin that on this thread please stop.....or put the web address on here...PLEASE PUT IT UP...OR SHUT


UP!!!!some of us have personal contact with Jim and he says all is great at his house but he cant say anything about what is going on...but he did say...there is a clebration of sorts at his house...so I can say something big IS happening for him now....but what we will all have to wait AND SEE... __________________ DEEP INSIDE...everybody is a watchgeek waiting to get OUT.................. bigboyzback View Public Profile Send a private message to bigboyzback Send email to bigboyzback Find all posts by bigboyzback Add bigboyzback to Your Contacts #300 Today, 06:32 PM

With all due respect to the other hosts, WG moderators and contributors, there will be no replacing Jim. No one makes watch collecting as entertaining, educational and interesting as he has. I got into watch collecting by his example and have learned much in the process. Without his excitement and enthusiasm for the hobby it is not as compelling. And, as someone more eloquent than I am said above--Now, what will I watch on Sunday evening? This sucks. Thank you, Jim! __________________ "Who has time? Who has time?

I got the inside scoop, this is what happened. SNBC got very upset when Jim shaved his beard and just left that soul patch a few weeks ago. Jim grew the beard back in an effort to keep his gig but the Shop said the damage was already done and had to let him go. Seriously though, none of the speculation makes much sense to me. -If he was deeply involved in Imperious, why would he leave this site when the new owners also own Imperious? Makes ZERO sense! -A move to WOW is not a lateral move, it's a big step back. It's only on a few hours a week and mostly online. Not high profile enough for Jim. I suspected this was going to happen. It seemed like Jim was on less and less over the last several months and he was also doing very late slots that he normally wouldnt. Leaving this site was also very telling, IMO. Sure, everyone is replaceable, I agree with that. But in this case, no one currently employed by SNBC will truly "replace" Jim. They can fill in the hours he normally would have worked, but they will not replace all that Jim brought to the table. Other hosts have knowledge, but none come even close to bringing the combination of knowledge, salesmanship and entertainment that Jim excelled at. Not even close! That doesn't mean someone from the outside can't, but I doubt that will happen either. As has been stated, it's always about money. Maybe Jim was just too expensive. But since Jim had a contract, if they terminate that contract early, they have to pay out whatever is remaining on it. I doubt they would have just let Jim go if it was only about the money, because SNBC is losing in this scenario. They could have let him ride out the contract and got service from him for the length of their investment. Jim will be fine, he's too smart and talented to not get another good situation happening for himself! __________________

If he was fired, Shop will now say that... It could be against the law in MN. I know here in CO, if someone calls an ex-employer, all that ex-employer can LEGALLY say is "yes" or "no" when asked if a person ever worked there.


Only Shop and Jim know the truth and I doubt we will ever hear all of the facts. I do believe he was fired... No idea why, but he was certainly planning on being on air this week.

Why do you think nobody knew? This could have been in the works for days, weeks or longer. It is common when contracts are involved that one or both parties are prevented, legally from discussing any aspect of the separation. There might have been lots going on the nobody was talking about in order to protect a financial settlement. Who knows? __________________

Think Jim knew this was coming and his leaving WG had something to do with this. You would think Jim would team up with Invicta somehow, but if this is the case why leave WG that is now owned by Eyal. I know Jim did a lot at WG and needed a break, but why leave altogether? Maybe his new gig has nothing to do with Invicta and being associated with WG would result in some conflict with his new career. Isn't speculating fun . __________________

Can't play here for a few days, but Sherm emailed me that Jim has left SNBC. I hope it was on Jim's terms and he is happy. That's the bottom line to me. I'll miss him very much. Will wait to hear "FACTS" and not speculate on things... Magster View Public Profile Send a private message to Magster Find all posts by Magster Add Magster to Your Contacts #325 Today, 07:24 PM

I REMEMBER WHEN TIM LEFT. YOU DID NOT KNOW IT WAS HIS LAST SHOW. IT WAS JUST OVER. I CALLED SHOP AND SPOKE TO ONE OF THE EXECUTIVES, THEY SAID IT WAS TIMS CHOICE TO LEAVE,AND THEY WOULD FIND A EQUAL REPLACEMENT. THEY FOUND JIM. I DID'NT LIKE JIM AT FIRST. IT TOOK ME A FEW MONTHS TO WARM UP TO HIM WITH THE MEMORY OF TIM (WHO STARTED ME IN THE WATCH COLLECTING HOBBY) THAN AS I WATCHED I GREW TO LIKE JIM AND TIM BECAME A DISTANT FOND MEMORY. THAN I BEGAN TO SEE TIM ON OTHER SHOWS AND NOW I HAD THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. I BELIEVE THIS SAME SITUATION WILL HAPPEN WITH JIMS LEAVING. WAIT AND SEE, THEY MAY FIND ANOTHER REPLACEMENT AND THAN THE CYCLE BEGINS AGAIN.
