WELCOME TO THE WATCH JOURNEY
Please follow me while I evolve and learn in this lifelong hobby. My watch collection has been changing together as my tastes vary in brands, complications, price range and aesthetics.

I should stop searching for the perfect watch. I already own it – the Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5167a.
So to all Aquanaut lovers out there who are few and far between, if you are desperately searching for an Aquanaut equivalent purchase a Chronometre Bleu (evil snicker snicker snicker).
I’M TOO OLD AND TIRED OF THIS WATCH WAITING GAME. WHY MY VACHERON CONSTANTIN OVERSEAS PURCHASE WAS A WELCOME RELIEF
Why would I buy a stock I didn’t want like IBM in order to be placed on the waiting list for AAPL??? That is as irrational a thought as the number e.
Mr. Stern, can you grant me any stainless steel Nautilus for being so gutsy leaping forward with untrammelled folly?
I wouldn’t say the book flows like a novel but for Patek collectors and enthusiasts it is a well suited reference when they need factual information about a particular watch.
