    Very nice! Now-a-days, my raise money goes to fountain pens. Glad to see other people doing a similar thing.

    Heh, the LLD is indeed a great watch. Got to handle one a couple weeks ago, and loved it. Unfortunately the Omega still made a bigger impression.

    Also, the Wife says no to Credit...

    Oh well...

    Saving is too hard. Get credit like me - then it's like mandatory saving post purchase. Lld is a great watch.

    Apologies...I didn't get any pictures

    Between nearly jogging case to case and the literal platoon of armed guards I kind of forgot...

    I should add that the Wife's vote is the Omega**

    On days that I'm annoyed at waiting tables I think about buying the Ball, or maybe a Breitling Colt (automatic). But I could see being mad at myself for that someday.

    Most days I lean towards the Avenger. I have an 8.5 inch wrist, and a 53mm Rangeman sits quite comfortably. I believe the 45mm Avenger would look right at home. As far as flash goes, I do prefer matte to polished (not enough to go for a Tudor Pelagos though), but I just love the look of the Avenger...and the Omega

    Tough one. I like the Ball but their watches have never really tempted me. The Omega is commonplace, but still a classic diver. The Breitling is so good looking but I've found that they're just a bit more flash than my style can handle. Full disclosure - my Omega PO is my lifetime keeper, so no surprise I'd lean Seamaster if it were me.

    No, no snapchats for me. Never.

    'Tis true that every man and his dog (myself included) has a blog these days, but I'll never do Snapchat, Instagram (again), and I see no point in being on Facebook.
    Hell, I still use typewriters and 35mm film.

    "Better lucky than good" they say

    Haven't hunted the Dakota's yet, I hit 4 states a year...planning on Nebraska soon. Love bowhunting the critters, my time of peace in the woods.

    Hope your hatrack is mended, if not time for a new one

    Gotta love those pets. I have one cat that will steal things and then play with them all over the house. Another will sit on a desk and casually knock things off just to hear them go bang on the floor. So far, no one has taken a flying leap to break something like Lilith did.

    If I had a server to post my cat pics on, I'd give you a run for your money.

    Well, I wish you best of luck. My grail ended up being a current Omega Planet Ocean. Not sure why, but I always loved the orange bezel.

    Nice thing about 'grails', they can work on a personal level.

    Good luck!
