Hello

Hello everyone. This is a great forum but it is costing me money! After lurking a while I just purchased a Coke GMT and a two-tone blue face submariner. I can’t wait to get them! Here is a picture of my LV while on a hike today.

Welcome. Love an LV! I do believe most of us would be perfectly content with one watch but... Sounds like you're building a lovely collection at least.

I didn't already mention it (because I already had it before coming here), but I also have an older black bezel sub date. So, I had the sub date and the LV, then started reading and had to buy a TT (which I was already on the fence about) and the GMT. Seeing pics here really pushed me to the GMT.

I wasn't able to source the TT or the GMT locally, so I bought online. I should have them late next week and I'll post pics when they arrive.
