Horses for courses. The Speedy is a forum darling (across many fora) and has history, panache, and a great sense of self. But if it's not speaking to someone - be it an owner or someone looking at a watch in that price range - then there is no reason to buy or keep something that doesn't make your heart flutter.
I appreciate your support Mr. Moo, but I think DLJr is right. I just don't think I could go through with the divorce for one more immediately sexy but, no doubt, more temperamental. Perhaps I'm not as head over heels in love with my Speedy as I was when I first met her. But she's been faithful, never let me down and is still quite a looker. She's reliable, easy to pick up and put down without fuss and has a certain comfort and timeless simplicity that I would most certainly miss while running around with some complicated model.
Whatever I might get up to on the side, she's gotta be my rock.
No pun intended, of course...
