Genuine Watch Wrist Check for October 2020

@Intresting

So you were trying it on to see if you wanted it?

Reminds me of the time I visited the Bvlgari boutique in Queens Plaza (CBD) and the sales manager wanted me to try on the Daniel Roth designed minute repeater-tourbillon,  which was approx $350K.

He was encouraging me to take a 'wristie' but I politely declined.

He told me that I was the first person that had EVER declined the opportunity..............

I explained that the watch was just too large for my tastes.

Pretty much.  Was after the Seamaster.   Never thought of the proplof.   Until now.... :)   The rose gold is almost 50% more than the pure titanium.... will go have a look at the pure titanium when it comes in next month or so.    Looking is free :D

@Del and @RussP So the story is....   was at the AD with some mates and the target actually was this.  (sorry for the smears on the crystal.   Its a hot day today...)

The proplof was on display, and it was the rose gold titanium version.   It sits rather well on the wrist.  Amazingly comfortable for such a big watch. Price will need a second mortgage or a significant portfolio shift.  Am unsure if its worth paying so much more for the rose gold, and they are out of the full titanium model for now.   Will go have a look when its in.  So, not quite "landed' it.  Tempting, but the cost is eye watering.
 

Oh, very nice! :thumbsup2:
