A sacrifice had to be made.

Post by footycrazy »

I just knew i should NOT have walked past my local jeweller today, luckily i was wearing the Favre Leuba which i had bought off him last week, because staring right at me was an Omega constellation chronometer with date that i just had to have.
So F.L had to go :( and the FLE fund also :( (I HOPE ITS LATE AS USUAL) :lol:

A very good watch and as kip said worth the trade imo, would love one myself but 36mm is a bit small for me. Wear it with a smile
