    It absolutely is. It has been about two years since I picked it up and I have had no interest in adding anything else to my collection since the point. Actually, I got rid of everything else I had. I wear it pretty much every day, and on occasion I wear the B&M that wife gave me when we got engaged.

    The only other watch I really have my on is the ALS Zeitwerk Repeating but I'm shy by about half a mil. :/

    All for the one time price of $79.97.
    Get it now before they offer it for the same price without the black diamonds. (aka coal)

    It must stay for posterity and so future readers can ponder the enigma of your hilarity.

    Ironically, it is my daily driver.
    It was my first real mechanical watch.
    It is one I will keep for life.
    Thanks, D.

    So I was looking at both the used & new one. I decided against the used one as unfortunately it had a very small ding in the bezel. The new one is only $500 cheaper than the boutique price. I'm going in a different direction as I'm still not paying >$22,000 for a watch that I'm not 100% certain about! (the dial is not as blue as I'd like)

    I have a new VC incoming tomorrow, will share pics!

    My new two-tone Rolex Yacht-master in rose gold and steel with chocolate dial. I know it breaks all kinds of SF rules and might attract some hate, but it's my don't-give-a-damn watch, and I enjoy it. Wishing everyone a happy and restful holiday week.

    I've got the new Omega Planet Ocean 43.5 in Blue on order, but looks like it won't make it for Christmas. ETA right now is 1/9.
