I learnt a lot from Bob about all the important things in life (not watches)

Just to let you know Bob(cos I know you're up there in your favourite bloody cowboy boots nodding your head)...I WILL be taking that last bit of advice you gave to me in 2010

RIPBBQ

"I also realized that I don't have to own a watch to appreciate it and I came to understand that to me, watches only represent one facet of a life well lived. Plus I spend less time obsessing over what is next. I found watches not only tell time, they steal it if you let them "

Bob's note to you is so simple, yet so important. I should know, as I've been on the worst offender list for keeping in touch.

I had an opportunity a couple of weeks ago to attend an AD's Panerai Event which I knew a bunch of local 'ristis would be attending, including Bob. I got busy with the usual bullcrap, and the weather wasn't so great, and I decided to not make the 90 minute drive to the event to see my friends. A decision I'll now regret forever.

That has become more of a Paneristi slogan lately...
