Incoming....

I bought my first Rolex for my 30th birthday 9 years ago, a stainless Daytona. Decided it would be a nice to celebrate my 40th with a Day-Date 40. Asked the AD to put me on the list a few months ago and got the call a lot sooner than I expected.

Many many months before my 40th, but when the AD calls, you don't say no...
