Full of anticipation.

I did it again. No! No!! No!!! No!!!!!!!!!

I have sworn to myself not to buy another watch in 1.000 years. 

Now - after 3 months (sic!) - I did it again and pulled the trigger. 

5 reasons for this:
1. I am very very weak!
2. These permanent temptations and seductive posts here on this wonderful place („thanks a lot“ especially to Ahoi :-/)
3. This watch has been on my wish list for a long time
4. I want to celebrate how well I was able to get through these challenging times so far. I am very thankful and humble for that. 
5. I was able to make a partly trade-in again. So this deal seems “reasonable”. 

The watch will arrive in the next two weeks. Will keep you posted. 😊

Cheers/Ciao/Amitiés/Servus
Thomas

It‘s the the 3rd purchase in almost 6 months. 😌 I can just state to my defense that I am still in line with my „higher strategy“: to depart from every watch I feel just lukewarm with and to reduce my collection from quantity to (personal) quality. My aim ... 

Love the fiddy!

The only problem in my experience is that the goal posts keep moving 🤔

Huge congrats for the Fiddy!

You are so right, dear Tony!

I can reassure you: It was just a short moment of weakness. 😊 But now desire and joyful anticipation prevail. Best Thomas

Congratulations to the Fiddy... I can fully understand your decision. Felt the same before I got one.

You are asking too much. 😁 It’s a different strap than on the 721!!!! Traraaa!! A small step for you as the “king of straps” but a giant leap for me. 😊 (Free interpretation of a famous quote).

I told my wife that I made a fantastic

deal by trading two old watches I don’t wear anymore above market prize and buying the Fiddy below market prize. So our family fortunes have increased. She looked at me for a long time and ... accepted it. 😊

Well played! ;) [nt]

I have studied law in Austria and have a master degree. But am not a lawyer. So: yes. Perhaps. One day? 😊

To which there is no cure. Enjoy your new beauty!

Yes. There is a well-known quote

 
 By: MTR : May 18th, 2020-13:20
in Austria from Alfred Polgar: „Die Lage ist hoffnungslos aber nicht ernst!“ That means that „the situation is hopeless but not serious.“ I think this describes our mental situation as watch lovers very well. Hahahahaha!

LOL!

Yes, dear Leopold, this strategy seems to work perfectly. But it must not used too inflationary...
