It's a problem as I've spent over £800 on watches in a month and have already mentally spent over £3000 on the next two I'd like!!

I can see that this might be a problem in certain circumstances. Priorities? Budgets? Food? Heat? Shelter?

You can always cut out at leat half the food and spring is near so the heating bill should be less. That should help. :)

Oh don't worry, all the important stuff is taken care of, I just kinda feel its excessive. BUT, i know I keep banging on about it, I have just finished smoking.
Let me explain.
3 years ago my partner and I decided to stop smoking. I said "right, what will really drive us is if we both buy ourselves an expensive treat, that way everytime we feel the urge for a cigarette we just have to remember the treat we've bought and tell ourselves we couldn't have had the treat had we continued smoking"
I bought a DSLR and she had her teeth professionally whitened.
This worked for 2 years. We both started again, her first, around 6 months ago so I said we should do the treat thing again. Which I have, it just so happens to be another watch 2 weeks after I bought the first. Had it been something different, like a new TV it wouldn't feel too bad.
Thats how I explained it to her anyway. It worked. :D

I don't know if this is the first time I've seen a C60 GMT Lume shot or not, but I'm surprised at how nice that looks.

You read my mind, C60 with orange bezel. Un decided on strap. Probably bracelet as I have two leather strapped watches now and just one bracelet so need to even things out.

I had ordered the SOKS only to switch to the SKS. I have more realistic pics in the Reference Gallery of my newly arrived SKS. Could not be more please.

BTW - your DBR1 is Drop Dead Gorgeous! Congrats!

Not quite arrived but it has landed in Vancouver so it (C60 Trident GMT) could be here tomorrow or Monday... :D

Faster than I thought but I have not yet had a 'conversation' with my wife...so my window has shrunk somewhat.
