Uh oh, late to the party. Plus it's sure to be a boutique only model which means a measly 3% discount.Not sure if they're limited or not but last time I did my rounds I saw plenty of Dark and Grey side of the moons (which I was told was boutique only as well) on display, so there is some hope yet.
Not usually a fan of Speedmasters but the new Snoopy one seems to speak to me in a way I do not understand. Something about the combination of white dial, whimsical cartoon character and historical trivia seems to just click in my head. Very strange, but bottom line is I do want one. Even more so than them Dark / Grey / White Side of the Moon editions, which are admittedly pretty but does not quite push my buttons in the same...
The sales associate I deal with the most at my AD is always happy to ply me with whatever catalogues they have available. I think she is hoping to sell me a PP one day since she always gives me theirs even without me asking.
If you're asking me, its the 2.4 non-turbo.
Current watch and pen.. Yachtmaster does not get enough love on here. I am sad. On the off topic of Audis.. I've been driving an A6 for a number of years and other than the fact it guzzles engine oil (light comes on every 3 to 6 months) and the usual wear and tear I haven't had any serious issues. But of course I'll say this and experience a transmission failure or something next week.
On a somewhat related note I took my BLNR travelling a couple of weeks ago (first trip since I picked it up, first GMT watch too). I would randomly keep staring at it just to check 'home' time, even though it was only a 3 hour time difference and I could just have easily done the math in my head.
The dial on the deep blue is mesmerising, but other than that both hold no appeal to me.
I must say I am greatly appreciating this new trend of posting watches together with delicious looking food.
You needed to be reminded??? If I had something like that coming in the mail I would obsessively and compulsively check the tracking number a dozen times each day.
I'm fortunate that this is mrs aleksandr's philosophy. Also it helps that (1) both of us make very decent salaries so household finances are never an issue, and (2) I've been into the nice thing game far longer than I've known her so from day one when we started dating (and probably importantly, before she had any say in finances) I've been buying things.
