Lovely, this was definetely THE watch to buy in this years january sales (may i remind people that summer sales are generally better for depth of range if you didnt find anything you wanted this time around).

Im currently wondering whether to add another massively discounted Hamilton to the collection (probably won't though - poor lume, no anti reflection and undecorated movements let them down).

I cant see Redd ever selling this one tbh.

My LE version says hello (rubbish pic):

I miss all the great things that may never be.

I like your balls very much.

I'm sure if I had balls like those, I'd be very happy with them.

Perhaps to go with your Balls you should get some Long Jeans






Longines... get it? .... ok... i'll get my coat

I'm going to have to make sure I've cash in the bank for the EJ summer sale - is there a traditional start date, so I don't forget?

I must confess to being an admirer of your Ball's, definitely a step up from mine.

I can :D Might be a while though and I have no plans to (if a good yellow faced Orient Star 300m Saturation came up I'd a decision to make!). One year of flipping later and there Is still some experimenting to do. Fortunately George Osborne is aware of my problem and is doing a very fine job in trying to stop me.
