    Oops, forgot my last acquisiton of 2016.
    While in Jamaica having an early celebration of our 30th anniversary I buy Mrs. K a nice little FC and she insists on getting me something in return. There isn't a lot I like but the fake chrono presentation of the day/date on this thing amuses me.

    Titanium Eco-Drive something or other. Every time I wear it I am reminded of Mrs K and what might be the best vacation of my life.

    Here we are and it is 2017 now. The year starts with an unexpected flurry of selling. A really weird private message from the other place regarding a picture I posted many years ago opens the door and in short order 8 pieces, at least half of which are really nice, go out the door without a twinge of regret. I have it in mind that I will only buy one piece this year and I already know what it will be.

    The Robert Lighton San Remo, after the Model 400 I already own, is the watch that I really, really want and Brian offers to sell his to me. I can hardly contain my excitement and when we finally get down to brass tacks...

    I leave it in the lurch for the Neinaber Bunde. I had been after a Neinaber for a while and I always thought I would get one of the wackier ones, but the more I looked at it in comparison to the Lighton, the moe I liked the Neinaber.


    So, that's it for the year then. It's March. I'm done and fine with it.

    Larry buys an Armand Nicolet L-10. I have been fascinated by their treatment of old movements since I discovered their O.H.M. series. I casually mention that if he's interested in selling it...


    Then... Rado introduces the Captain Cook reissue. I thought I would never have to buy another new Rado, as I don't really care for the direction they are currently heading. After getting over being pretty angry with them I order it and start the four moth wait.


    Larry buys a 90th anniversary Stowa Le, so now I own this.

    August rolls around and the Captain Cook finally arrives and it's a little gem.

    Wonderful summary, and a wonderful set of additions to what was already a very eclectic collection. Oh, and awesome pictures as always...

    Thanks, mlcor. I think this year's batch of watches was really good. That's probably why I am not restless about the collection.

    Is that because of the mix up in the case finish?

    Yes. But they said it would add an extra week. That was a month and a half ago.

    That's not great.

    That sucks. But if it's anything like mine, it'll be worth the wait. Love mine.
