That watch would cost more than my house, every car I’ve ever owned, and every holiday I’ve ever been on, with the odd Patek thrown in for good measure. :lol:

Re: Footycrazy fantastico!!!

I have a problem. My Speedy on the Footy strap has become surgically attached to my wrist and I can't remove it. I might have to seek legal advice. :lol: :wink:
