It is hard to image you like any different than your avatar after all these years. Never change. Best Bill

No worries Bill!

Here and there I must have sounded for some like the guy in that movie but I think I made up for that "arrogant" behaviour in a few interesting post. Thank you Bill!

CONGRATS, CDM!!!

It is a very good feeling to be a tiny part of this community.

My pleasure, my friend!

Thank you for the insights into your collection and thoughts on watches. I liked post most here where history and links between manufacturers are emerging when certain movements are discussed. It has been a while now since we met and hopefully we will be ... 

Congratulations Count, enjoy your collection.

I particularly like your post on the Ellipse. I learn a lot from you. Best wishes ☺️ Geross

That is very kind of you geross?

Good to see that you liked them. Yes, the Golden Ellipse ... an eternal love! πŸ˜€

I was thinking I know a bit about mechanics

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : August 24th, 2019-02:03
and then I met you here! πŸ˜€ Thank you for your detailed and captivating explanations, skyeriding and the discussions. At times I felt that a few bits of my knowledge are also knew to you (the "annual" calendar discs of Langes comes to my mind typing this) ... 

I have to join "watch tech" soon

A highlight for me was the London gathering in 2015 (if I recollect correctly with a slight hang over today) where many Purists met and where I had the immense pleasure to meet you. Your posts and the words that you use reflect your personality very, very... 

It feels good to read that ChristianDK!

It’s been a pleasure having you with us. Looking forward to the next 5000 !

Thank you my dear Captain, but at 10 k I am expecting a welcome from the Purists like in the video!

Your idea to search for a Seiko for me was a nice touch.

I will, Vte, I will! Thank you! [nt]

I enjoy your views on Pateks also a lot.

You all are the reason for that, Fab!

Jocke, I had the notion that being called a friend by you here is something you do not say just by the way. To have reached this status is cool! When I saw a picture of you and Tony in a GO book, I was such impressed and had a happy feeling that I know th... 

The Daymatic feeling is still there

 
 By: Jocke - Bad Santa : August 24th, 2019-07:01
but the cash is not at the momant. A grail is a grail, it should take some time to get it. Din't we meet in London? Or have I mixed up things?

Your memory is correct Jocke

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : August 24th, 2019-09:17
We met at the big London gathering. Regarding a platinum Daymatic, there was a very, very good offer "recently". I thought a moment about it and it was already gone ...

First, congrats on hitting 5K, Count, and for all your contributions here!

Second, I’m really disappointed to learn that’s only an Avatar. I was honestly holding out hope that was actually you! πŸ˜€

Believe it or not, it took me a while to figure out . . .

Thank you NickO!

How many web communities can brag of having their own Count? We are all appreciative of your friendship and wonderful posts. To the next 5k!

I was wondering: no message from MichaelC?

 
 By: COUNT DE MONET : August 27th, 2019-11:21
Thank you for your great job at the AP forum! I look forward to meet you finally when you are visiting Nicolas in Paris again, for instance. That would be a good chance.

Count, I was indulging this past weekend in the Colorado Mountains

 
 By: MichaelC : August 27th, 2019-13:16
Usually when we go camping, my mobile phone does not function at all. I never mind, unless I miss an important moment like congratulating a good friend for a milestone! I will look forward to that meeting for sure ...  

Well done and congrats!
