    And it’s interesting to see watches like the Askania that don’t make it to these shores

    Which was your fave?
    Any new purchasing plans hatched?
    I might want to go for a perfect Rolex collection:

    Oh wait, I have it.

    When an (Rolex?) attendant saw me taking the pic, he came over and very politely noted that they have more Rolex upstairs. Yup, they did:

    TBF, there was a handful of pieces more scattered around the displays but you get the picture.

    I had a look at Cartier and figured they all are pretty much jewellery and Santos would be the only one I could consider at this point.

    BTW, a shoutout to Wempe, great shopping (well, eying, more like) experience and atmosphere.

    Also enjoyed my time at Hublot. The Unico Sapphire is something I wanted to check out back in 2018 but they didn't have it yet back then in Budapest. How smoothly the flyback chrono movement was working was amazing, too. I also had a look at IIRC a Big Bang of 'magic gold', a mix of gold and ceramic. While their form-factors are not for me, I do admire how they're pushing the tech.

    Fave, I think this Junghans was a happy discovery and comfortably in my fave price range. Every time I visit those higher end boutiques I'm confirming with myself that I simply have no interest in buying/owning crazily expensive watches.

    Plans, no more watches at all. Ever.
    I'm sorted and so not buying any more watches.
