    Thank you sir.

    I do have DanP to thank for this. He pushed me over the edge.


    Thanks DanP.

    Liking your ROO. How have you enjoyed it so far? Sadly the Offshores look out of scale on my 6.5" wrist. I might be able to pull off the 37 mm ROO but the others (like the Panerais) just look huge on me.

    Absolutely.


    If nothing else go for the ones you like the most anyway.


    One day though, I wouldn't mind putting in application or two for one of those very special Pateks.

    I'll probably never get there. But from what I understand it has a great deal to do with how strongly your AD speaks on your behalf. Of course you have to have a couple nice Pateks by this time already, and when your approved you may have to wait a couple of years and the price will be what the price is when you actually receive the watch.


    But hey if I had the money, I wouldn't mind waiting for one of those real nice Patek Philippe Repeaters.
