A little consolidating and an incoming

Iíve always wanted a full PM piece so after a long while of debating, researching, trying on different options and some nice encouragement from my wife I consolidated two pieces and ended up with the following



Iím over the moon with it and glad I went for the yellow gold. I debated forever between yellow gold and the white gold sub as I have never worn any yellow gold before and am typically very low key. The brushed surfaces give it a great look and my wife is very happy with my choice (she has a 116613lb as a gift from me that she wears daily).

Iíve trimmed down to 2 watches now and Iím very happy with the results: this 116618lb and a Patek 5167a. The two watches are polar opposites and pretty much cover all the bases for me.

Very happy to have joined this club. Now, onto more pictures of the watch and a bunch of others that I tried on in the process.









And a tray full of gorgeous DD40ís just because.


Cheers!

Thanks Larry! The BLRO is awesome but just had to go yg for my first full PM piece. Definitely still on the radar though. The wife is already sold on the platinum DD40 for herself. Looks like I have my work cut out for me

OK, we can work with that.

Next we score the DD40 for her, and then while she's still basking in the glow, we'll slip that little BLRO right in there.

And then...size the DD loose for her, tell her "that's how they wear them" and boom, when she's not looking you slap that on for the day...or two.

You're welcome.
