No, Secrets are a women's priority!!!hahaha😂😂😂

But it's liers my Grail watch - I put my first deposit down yesterday.

I also gave my mum a £250 Citizen gold and steel watch as I'm allergic to the steel, so just concentrating on the watch until it's paid.

Then I'll show you😊💝🐱🐱

Then, maybe a pen. Or two, or three.  Then there's SF.  Shoes.  Suits.  Gifts for the wife.  Should we count those as "nonessentials"?

So, I am issuing my 2015 Declaration now that It Will Be The Year That Frilly Saves Money. Boom.  My wife will receive a handwritten heartfelt note for our 15th wedding anniversary.  And she will love it!  I Have Spoken, and My Twat Brethren Can Hold Me Accountable!

Hahaha same here. My initial declaration was simply no cars or watches in 2015 but I like your more comprehensive approach. We should make some sorta pact. Lol

Definitely not the only one! smile.gif Sadly, I haven't worn my 15400 since I got the DDII. The novelty of the rose gold has not worn off as quickly as anticipated.

TC - I endorse this Pact of Saving(TM). Boom!

Also, this photo may or may not have been cropped. But there's something compelling about this store/brand...

So I swapped out the black OE strap for this custom bitter chocolate croc number.  Naturally, the camera auto-focused on the new boots :crackup:so you will have to imagine it non-blurry.

I caught an Art Basel exhibit yesterday that would have made the TWAT ROfans cream in their pants.



Rounding out Audemars Piguet's programming in Miami, the Swiss watchmaking brand will mount an exhibition of exceptional historic and contemporary timepieces in Art Basel's Collectors' Lounge, inside the Miami Beach Convention Center. The Audemars Piguet Lounge titled MINERAL LAB, created by the renowned French designer Mathieu Lehanneur and recreated in a new configuration here, was unveiled at Art Basel in Hong Kong earlier this year. It evokes the captivating landscape of the Vallée de Joux, historic home of Audemars Piguet in the Swiss Jura Mountains, which has served as backdrop and a source of inspiration for the brand's extraordinary legacy of craftsmanship. A panoramic film exploring the Vallée de Joux, by Austrian video artist Kurt Hentschläger, titled MEASURE, will be on display in the Lounge during Art Basel in Miami Beach.

Nosir!  White stitching - I can't explain why it looks blue in the pic, other than my camera was distracted.

@Tifosi if I said it once I'll say it twice.

 

 

The best way not to buy any St Crispins is to simply not look at any St Crispins.

 

 

Oops, too late. LOL
