    Your rotation is going to be quite long now if you give them all a turn.

    Thinking that you could get away with one battery (well, one of each type)...

    Gave me a smoking deal $70.00 USD & pressure tested them too.
    Only 12 of those were replaced BTW
    I had to do it in remembrance of my best bud.
    But I'm going to be selling some of them to.
    Is that shitty?

    I don't think so. Keep one or two that are the most special and set the rest free.

    No, I don't think so. Keep a few to remember him by, but make sure you do something appropriate with the money you make from the sales.

    That was my thinking. I would like to sell enough to purchase a IWC big pilot that was his grail of grails he could never afford something like that and I always told him let's sell a bunch of your watches so you can get you one if that's the 1 you want.
