Love GMTs.....1675 and added a GMT TT ceramic a few months ago. I am entertaining the idea of jumping into the Sea-Dweller world.

A very busy thread

You know, I created an account here a long time ago, just to make some purchases, but spent most of my time on other forums; However, after an extensive amount of reading, I am really starting to like this community.

I dabbled in an online business with a buddy during college, but it was so difficult to operate that, fulfill school obligations, and work part-time to keep the bills paid. It ended up being profitable, not greatly of course, but I ended up jettisoning the biz to work two part-time jobs: GNC and in the gym on campus!

Associate of Applied Science - ACC
B.A. Penn State
B.S. University of Texas

Oddly enough, I partner in a home health business working exclusively off of my AAS. A few people remarked that trade school or real world experience can be more productive, and my income and practice does support that. Also, my friends that piqued my interest in watches have no college experience. My brother-in-law, an AP collector, his friend Nick, a TAG nut (crazy for a guy pulling in a 7 figure income), and our buddy Mark, a Breguet and Patek collector. Mark has a substantial amount of money, and loves to flaunt it ostentatiously. He had me wear his platinum Patek 5004 in the Bangkok airport once, and I was sweating bullets. haha
Me: 16622 Yacht, 116400V Mil, 16520 Daytona, 1680 Sub, 16808 nipple dial, 16610 Sub in the shop being DLC treated at the moment.
Good luck with college. I appreciate my neuroscience degree more than anything else, although it can never provide me with a lucrative career. I miss it so much though that I am battling a crisis of conscience, and a desire to return to medical school. I find that I feel more fulfilled with scholastic achievements, rather than real-world or financial.
