For me, probably not. My wife tolerates but does not like to feed the junkie....

Not here. My only contact with watches will be strapping on my C60 GMT, locking the rest away safely and heading for somewhere a bit warmer.

It’s so hard to make preowned purchase opportunities pop up in coordination with Christmas.

Coincidentally though, there may be a Kickstarter watch or two that will arrive before then ... due to production delays.

Then there is an Elliot Brown Halton ordered which also, hopefully, will be with me by Christmas.

Plus, when I can find time, there'll be some of my current collection appearing in the Sales Corner.

Paul, he’s real, but when the Chief Elf popped in with his clipboard at the Mods Meeting you were placed on the naughty list.

Will look out with interest, I have a couple of spaces in my box. Even after my Formex arrives.

Although the tracking currently shows it having left London on the day of purchase and moved to Hong Kong where it cleared UK customs... :-k
Still no sign of the bracelet...

But I made the mistake of visiting the Seiko outlet store on Friday; 50% off lots of shiny things, so I’ve now got something for under the tree :tree:
