I have a few things I would love to try out in the coming months and years...

Another G-Shock... This time a solar and atomic model

Another Grand Seiko. I would love to get this one:


Another Archer. Something so cool about a watch powered by a 70+ year old American movement.



A Rolex at some point. An older Sea-Dweller would definately do the trick...

I would like to try out a Citizen Campanola as well.

Perhaps another Marinemaster or SD 600 at some point.

Definately a Panerai. I love the one that Al has. While Panerai has a new movement which is kind of "in-house", I love that Al's is powered by the venerable 7750. Such a cool and reliable movement...

What say you AWF?

have become a little more modest.
I keep doing mental calculations of the cost of a watch I
might be considering, compounded interest over the next
18 yrs. and I end up sticking it in his account.
This orient will probably be my next purchase.

....... >>> are drained.... for now. There is too much on my list of priorities and a new watch is not even on at least for the next 6 months. As the wife and I are sharing 1 car, I have to focus on saving some cash to afford to do same repairs on the Camaro which will happen sometimes next week. That`s gonna drain me of about $1000-$1500 and after that I got to finance my mother`s surgery - she`s been diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Hopefuly, I will still have some cash left to buy some plane tickets to go visit her towards the end of the year.
It may even come down to selling some of what I have because the ones that would bring in some $$ are the ones I wouldn`t wanna sell...
So, for now, I got to take care of this baby...

handwinder from the late 90s....I could have ...but something told me to collect some of the Seiko classics etc....to later flip if need be....

The orange Monster is fun to wear, and the 009 is another modern classic. The Omega line is complete......now just the classic Rolex like Michael in Texas GMT haha!

......... >>> in Romania its a grey area. You don`t know what are you gonna pay for when in hospital. Even if people are paying for the health care out of their salaries/pensions, the hospitals are very underfunded and if you may not pay for the surgery itself but you may have to pay for various medications and even for the stiches, after the surgery.
My mom finished her chemo-therapy (covered by their health care) just 3 weeks ago. Now she`ll have to go talk to a surgeon about what`s gonna be next. Depending on how succesful the chemo-therapy was, she may or may not loose her breast but, nevertheless, there will be surgery. She won`t know exactly if she`ll have to pay for it or if it is partialy/fully covered by the health care. Based on what I found out, a surgery like that can cost anywhere between 500 and 2000 Euros. That`s some good cash even for me. Now try to imagine an 69 year old woman that only has a monthly pension of 230 Euros.

....... will leave you speachless! If I`m not mistaken, both watches are in about the same price range. But if you decide to "upgrade" to the "Royal Oak" then you`ll be looking at a lot a money...
