Just a general enquiry to begin with if you would be so kind.

My F1 is a 4 month old LTD carbon (number 85/2500) face and on a bracelet. If he's interested, can you get a PM address or e-mail for him as I can't pm through their site.

Thanks mate.

Oh you bad man! 0% finance is the very work of the Devil and should be avoided at all costs (hint: it's greater than 0%!).

And welcome back from me too. That was a very honest and sobering account David and very courageous of you to post it on the forum. I'm very glad you're back and I can associate with some of what you say. Good luck with your continued recovery and I'm sure everyone on here will help in any small way i.e. not sell you a watch for a start! Anyway, good to have you back you old goat :wave:

"Git!" is the correct response here I think!

Welcome back XT and thank you for the thought provoking reintroduction.

I think I suffer a milder form of what you have described but I have channelled my inner geek into creating ever more complex and fiendish spreadsheets (now a database) to record budget, spend, complications, features, accuracy tests and the like. It focusses the mind on money and distracts me from spending.

I too have kept my watch related New Year resolution - I have worn a different watch every day so far, freeing some watches from weeks or months or imprisonment - and still have a week and a bit to go. :) :? :ka:

I'm glad to have you back. :thumbs:
