    I'm not a huge fan of Rolexes in general, but this is just beautiful.

    thanks, man!


    possibly. its all a matter of phrasing. :)

    but really ill just tell her i got a bonus, im using it for a watch, and leave it at that.

    what do you think of the watch and the story? did your eyes glaze over halfway through my post?

    I am saving it for later :). I need to read through the last few days of posts, unfortunately. I never even knew about that model though, and in blue... it is absolutely stunning. I love it. Hopefully tonight I will have some down time!

    I absolutely love posts on the long side. What a great story - and a great catch! Stitchy - super congratulations! Sorry that I'm late to the game, have been a bit busy all day. But you've been on my mind - good stuff!

    I have been waiting to hear from you, my friend!

    So very happy you like the watch, and that you enjoyed yet another one of my long watch posts!

    No need to apologize, and congrats again on becoming a citizen of the United States of America!
