....pretty much my reaction awhen un wrapping a nice packet from bonhams, must have lost my senses at that auction, mental note dont do that again.... the bracelet, the MOD green re-lume, the scarring, she'll kill me when i show her this





quick think on your feet man, take the bracelet off and spend an hour on that crystal and get a bezel pearl in, she'll not notice it's new, she'll think its one of your old ones....................




nahh still cant see for scars on that glass, she'll tell for sure, quick another hour or two of rubbing and lets get some of that debris out from under it and loose some of the gunk.....




bollocks, how could she miss those green power plant hands ..... if only there was a spare set of originals lying around the house, and a friendly AD open late with a whole work bench......




'whats was that dear', ' big whole in the bank account, no sorry don't know what you are talking about ....' its ages since i bought a new watch


sorry tried for Friday wrist shot, but didnt get done in time for daylight.

Don't worry, mate, I'll take that lump of lead off you... and I'm not referring to the old bracelet!

HAGWE!
