    Just re-read and can see that you got it from Rolex.

    Holy shit, that is an amazing pick-up! Agreed, a fantastic investment and such a rare watch. Did you get it from an AD, or from a broker? Paid a fair bit over list for the Patek by going grey, but really happy with it. I've already found that scratches very easily however, so it's not my daily beater. The Sub is perfect for that, so very much a case of visiting the right boutique at the right time. I've gone full need and got hold of the Rolex Magazine issue 6, just as it has the same watch on the cover. I'm on the list for a BLNR GMT Master II but still no idea when that will arrive, but am considering a TT steel / gold GMT in the new year as a healthy discount can still be had. Not a huge fan of yellow gold, but tried it on and liked it a lot more than I thought I would.

    Picked up a couple of new pieces over the last couple of months, and thought I'd get winder. Not sure yet if it's something that will get continued use once the novelty wears off, but lets see. The new pieces are the Patek Aquanaut 5167A, and the Sub C (No Date). Didn't plan on the Sub but the local boutique had one in and, with the scarcity of SS Professional models globally, I thought I'd take it. Not the one I wanted initially, but I actually love it now. Without the date and 'cyclops', I think it has a very clean and symmetrical look. Got the Aquanaut from a grey dealer at a premium, but no chance of getting one from the boutiques anytime soon. **hate the Photobucket branding all over the pics - dicks**

    The BLNR (Batman) and BLRO (Pepsi) for sure, but you can get a steel, black GMT Master II within a few weeks now (certainly here in Dubai). I checked in with the boutique in the Mall of Emirates a couple of weeks ago and got lucky - managed to pickup a black Submariner (no date) that had just come in.

    85% done 99% done 1 out of 3 options halfway there. The rest are how close some players are to being shipped out.

    Yeah Ribisi was great and Vin played quite a mellow character. Plus Affleck got to have his own Glengarry Glen Ross moment too. FYI, the guy that ruined that prisoner transportation scene in the Dark Knight ("that's not good.....okay that's really not good" SWAT guy) played Ribisi's slimy / jealous mentor at the broker firm.
