Not only is St Nicholas delivering a CWE blue and white C60, he is delivering a vintage cocktail watch to my wife: her first EVER non-quartz watch.
Some folk here follow the Alex Barter (ex Sotheby's head of watches) shop in Salop: Black Bough.
I bought her a wee 1960 watch in all-but unworn condition from there, having once bought myself a vintage Omega Genève.

Sounds excellent Steve and no doubt you both deserve them.

Nope. They seem to be going like hot cakes at the mo. Not sure if I'm missing something there but think I've got enough c60's at present. Maybe a GMT needs to be added but apart from that.......

He messaged back to say where on earth did I think he would get one of those at this time of year! :shock: :grumble:

Nevertheless, he would Sea (bit of a lame pun) what he could do. :santagrin:

An unidentified packed arrived this morning from 'overseas'.

It has been put away in a safe place but will be wrapped and put under the tree tomorrow.
