    just under a year... for work. I was literally counting the days and crossing them off the calendar one by one about 40 some days out. The only thing that kept me sane was the week-long break I took for New Year's to Vienna to relax, drink copious amounts of beer/wine, eat even more copious amounts of friend pork (Wiener schnitzel) and chill with some down to earth Euro-peeps! :)



    *** on another note... for those of you who remember my "Rado gift conundrum" I have been test driving the first possibility this week... hope to post a pic or two this weekend. Thanks to all who provided advice and stay tuned!

    Interesting - thanks. If you had kept one more, would it have been the Rolex?

    Actually I think it would have been the Seiko. Having a bad case of sellers's remorse about that one. I may have to buy it again in the future.

    Frills that 1601 looks great! Does yours still have the vintage acrylic crystal? and if so any tips on how to clean it from time to time. Mine took a trip through my gf's makeup bag because she misunderstood my "please bring me my watch" to mean "please stick my watch in your make up bag and scratch the s**** out of it" :D

    Anyhow its due for maintenence so i'm sending it in to have it completely serviced but for the future if you have any pointers on keeping that scratch prone acrylic looking that good i'd love to hear em.

    Stitch, I know you're in the middle of a NMWA* frenzy, and I feel your pain. But you know if you slip your new Inis Meain sweater on and your new shell shoes this weekend and go do something relaxed and fun with that Panny on your wrist, and they will all be so perfect together and you know it, then it will suddenly feel like something on which you are no longer able to compromise.

    Just saying.

    You have had a lot of courier/postman visits lately, haven't you?

    And Mrs Stitch has raised her voice** within the last two days, hasn't she?

    Every time I see that, I can't help reading this:

    very lulzy my man. also, you do make a good point. but if i sell the 112, the majority of the proceeds will go direct to my saving account. and even if i do wear it with my sweater, it would be solely for the sake of wearing it, not because i have a desire to be wearing it and i know it will end up right back in the drawer as i prefer the DJ. for me, if im forcing myself to wear a watch only so its not doing nothing, not because i am jonesing to wear it, that is not a good sign.

    this happens every time i have more than 2 watches. maybe i am just a 2 watch guy? THE HORROR!!!!

    oh le sigh, what to do.

    roger, that looks great!

    ^ That's not too dissimilar from my experiences; between my sub and my mk XV I hardly ever wear my 177 :-/

    At least part of it, is that I like to alternate the two automatics to keep them ticking.

    Not to throw cold water on the plan but you might find that the "softness" in the Rolex resale market is positively bullish compared to the Panerai resale market (based on my highly unscientific tracking as I hunt down a 114).
