Excellent gift from the team. Is there any truth in the rumour that they bought you the GMT version so you’d stop disturbing them when they’re trying to sleep over here?

Golly, that's a beautiful watch. I am new around here, but it is immediately obvious that you do a lot of heavy lifting in this forum and you are such a crucial part of this special community of watch junkies. Happy birthday to you, and thanks to you and to the CW folks who made it happen.
