Have you ever tried putting together a collage of seven pictures? Not very easy. But maybe I am not very creative.
Aside from the 1967 DJ I posted, here's a "family pic."
"Just" seven pieces but boy am I happy and satiated. I still look around at other pieces but haven't felt that burning urge to just chase one down. Dino will probably be disappointed but I've held off on getting that double red Sub. However, I am meeting with my dealer tomorrow as a family member wants me to look at a piece she's interested in getting, and I did ask him to bring that double red Sub/SD again just so I can look at it one more time.......
I would consider the 116520 white dial Daytona to be part of this family - except the missus has co-opted it. To "get back at her" I started wearing that 36mm blue dial DJ, which was the first piece I bought for her. Why do l have this sinking feeling that she came out ahead in that exchange, especially since she can take back that DJ anytime she wants anyway........

Here's one way to melt the internet:
Warning: Kate Upton wearing only body paint, but I swear it looks like a real bikini. Still, probably NSFW. (Click to show)

I totally get the Panerai thing, having tried them recently. And I retain a guilty and foolish lust for the unnecessarily over-sized Omega Planet Ocean Ti. Although I'm trying to learn moderation with age, the "it's kind of a Sub, but with way more numbers" factor, made me ask to try the DSSD first.
Nice intro and write-up overall. Really have to try these things before you're able to make any kind of judgment call regarding aesthetics, "general feel," etc.

The only watch they made that had a long standing history of selling for over list (for nearly 2 decades) was the SS Daytona. No matter what the hype was about any Rolex I wanted, I always eventually found them available new from an AD without paying over list.
