You know the collection shot is nice and all Mike. But why don't you show a picture of your see through storage device I've seen you carry them around with. I think some people will be "impressed" with it! ;-)

Okay, so Mike sold some of those watches (many of which I consider to be grails) to get his grail? And what watch might that be???

Welcome, Mike. I've seen your shots before and I almost sh** my pants. You'll like the vintage section here. It's a little more relaxed. Thanks for comin' aboard.

Welcome aboard Mike.

A true legend and a trusted gent to boot.

Impressed by the effort you put in recently to assist the guy from the bay who was selling his fathers Milsub, and did not realise the true value.

Superb collection.

Yep, that one worked out very sweetly (except for the bit where I had to pay for it: 60,600 is quite a stack of bills when you have to sit and count it!!).

The watch now resides with a passionate collector in Sweden, and I enjoyed a few bottles of champers as reward!
