Ah, that is good, I would have taken a mask, two scarfs and a hijab to make that journey.

Great watch!

Brave to fly 2000km in this day and age for a watch, unless you flew private

I really am happy for everyone who gets the beautiful watch they've wanted. And I do hope it was a private flight. But I wouldn't say "brave" because as a physician, I have to say it's unfair, if not irresponsible, to those around us to travel for something non-essential that could easily be mailed to you.
Sorry, I don't mean for it to be scathing in any way, but I have to go to work and likely get exposed, but you may not have to. I just think we should think about the risk to others. Again congrats, but I felt like I had to mention that.

I'll also add that I don't know where you live and what the rules for travel were, but I wanted to make a more general point.
