As I told you the very first time I came out of lurking, it's (long) posts like this that I love about this (long) thread.  Thanks as always for sharing your perspective.  There is no need to apologize, at least from where I'm sitting.

.... Perhaps, then, we shouldn't be looking at this as a review of watches and criticising it as such, rather thinking of it as a simple, primary-coloured billboard, that might draw in some new friends.  

 

Good, level-headed perspective, as always.  

 

And the fact that you can write "unashamedly intellectual" and "debated over optimum female bottom size" in the same sentence is what keeps guys like me coming back to this thread over and over again.  I mean, aside from learning about watches and viewing awesome pics, of course.

I almost missed responding to this.  This may well be the most overtly enabling statement you've issued for one of my prospective purchases, current collection (and speed at which I amassed them) aside.  That double red SD really got to you, huh!  fistbump.gif

 

It may well no longer be available but just to tempt myself further and test my willpower, I'll ask my dealer again if I can take a look at it.  I am afraid to put it on my wrist!  cold[1].gif

Thanks for that, Frilly, made me chuckle.  I'm looking forward to pictures of your new SD.  It's a natural evolution; you were bound to move on to "rare and collectible" sooner or later...;)

Second choice I'm not too sure about. Something quite dressy, white face, in metal/silver; anything like the Cartier Tank would be great.  

Any suggestions would be much appreciated! 

Big fan of the Max Bill chronos. ETA (valjoux 7750?) base, if I am not mistaken. Just gave a smaller handwound Max Bill Junghans to my fiancee.

To in stitches, Newcomer, Dino944, mimo, no frills and others that post long informative and interesting posts on this thread, these are the things that keep me glued to SF.

I probably would have only written a paragraph about it at max with the Forbes article!

Thinking about it, your English teachers must have loved you all, when comes to comprehension answers, essays and even creative writing; these I am average at the best of times, and would be thrilled if I get a credit or just a distinction for, and always amazed at some of my classmates that can write pages and pages.

and wow, that last sentence is horribly long and poor structured, haha. happy.gif

I hope you get it if that is the next on your to do list.

 

 

Great piece, Good Luck!!!

Thanks Wurger, that is very kind of you. I also wanted to mention, I have really been enjoying your contributions to the thread lately. You have some really outstanding looking watches. A very coherent collection of classics.

It is nice to post in an environment where people do not say TLDR to anything that is more than a paragraph smile.gif.

Cheers, mate, did anyone else tell you that they read your posts due to your display picture! drool.gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
