I was wondering whether to sell this one recently... I always get caught out, though, thinking that I should sell the watches I wear least. But this is a perfect example against this thinking. I don’t wear this one as often but it’s fantastic when I do wear it. I wear it on grey days, days when I need something to change, sunny days, days when I need a bit of luck... :D

Hmmm. I think it’s a bead blasted case, which I like the look of, but not as much as brushed SS for a tool watch. Shape wise I just found it a bit slab sided and a bit shapeless really. As if all the thought had gone into the dial :thumbup:

Haha! I had an epiphany- I know what my one watch is now. I had another epiphany- I love watches in general and many different specific ones! Who knew??! :lol:

Hey, I like this collection a lot! I like that it's very different from the usual kind of "lots of big divers and chronos collection " ie my kind of collection. Also you've got more strappage than I'm used to seeing in one place.

I still think that you are THE Dune advocate/ambassador.

Aye! Per the recent discussion about bracelets- that was me trying to give bracelets every chance to take some more places in my collection. But once the FLE arrives on a bracelet, and the C5 looks great on mesh, I think I’ve got my balance about right. And for as much as I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of different straps I find that most of the watches now have discovered THE strap- which I think might stick :thumbup:

Nice, Lindsey :thumbup:

It speaks to your journey and what you learned along the way. Not just about watches, also about yourself.
And that m'lady is a beautiful thing. I've enjoyed watching it happen. Pun and all :)

It's grand.

Congratulations Lindsay. It’s been fun and interesting watching the joys and disappointments of your journey. There really is no other way, other than experimentation to find your happy place. Great looking group there. The LE should be a great addition.
Time and money? I’ve spent most of mine on booze and women. The rest I just wasted…

I’m still failing at the one watch thing Dwight! :lol: However, I’m getting towards a place where if I had to grab one watch to keep from a fire, I’d be very happy with any of them :thumbup:

You don't want one watch Lindsey. One you've been used to a choice, it must be really hard just having one.
