I just saw your post and I am speechless.
There is so much passion in your post which includes for me everything this wonderful site is about.
You described your way to and with "her" ... heart warming.
The fourth from last photo shows how beautiful this watch is on the wrist. The third last picture is simply ... awesome.
I have to say that I am a really big fan of MRs, and this JLC MR always looked a bit too "busy" for me on the typical "official" studio photos made by JLC.
Now with your pics from real life everyone can see how beautiful this watch is! I am not talking about all the technical achievments. They are breathtaking.
I wish you "n x 13 years" of further honeymoon with your grail marvel.
