I will save my most interesting and exhausting for another time. But, I will share this: one of my most difficult buying processes was due to speed, efficiency and the easienss of it all. I wanted to treat myself to a grail watch for my 40th. So, I ordered this PP 5370p so it would arrive on time. But, the industrious people over at Patek decided I need to suffer, so they made sure to deliver it 11 MONTHS early. This meant the watch stays in the box, untouched for almost a year, lest I put some sort of curse on it or me. So yeah, I was stuck looking at this for 11 months:
That's torture, right there. 11 Months of staring and waiting, of anticipation and disbelief.
So, let's hear them, your best ones. Oh, and please limit to 1 or 2 pics per post so our judges can survive.
