A little gem I picked up on Sunday
Given that pretty much every forum and blog over the last month has been writing articles about the craziness of the steel sports watch market, mainly over Patek and Rolex, I think we can still find many, many more interesting alternatives instead of foll...
Thank you! I think so too
