And oh, how they got me.
Or "why in the world would you think I'd like your old-man-watches, Dad? I'd rather have mom's banged up scratched up watches."
Great thoughts here. Who knows what the kids will think. Maybe they might not even like me when they grow up. But hey, I figure I'll enjoy the pieces now while I have 'em, they will see me wearing them every day (my 3.5 year old already knows how to operate a chrono, although she says she prefers the Explorer I to the Daytona as "she likes the watch Dada swims with" - and she does need my help unscrewing the darn screw down pushers), and if they detest them hopefully they can sell them for a decent wad of cash.
Viva Patek victims!
I saw that transaction. I neither have the inclination, nor the dollars to blow, on this piece. I understand it's probably one of a kind, but that indicator (is it day/night or leap year?) looking all pimply between 3 and 4 kind of puts me off for some reason...
