Greetings from Dallas

Hello all,

Turned 53 this year and thought it would be a good time to treat myself to a Rolex. I found a DJ41 Slate / Roman that caught my eye and that was the first... Traveling in Austria with my wife a few weeks later....she bought a DJ28 with diamonds that suited her perfectly. Bought that one too. Arrived back in Dallas, went to visit my local AD and couldn't resist a Sub C TT Bluesey. 1 watch became 3 in a hurry. I can already tell this might become a sickness :) No worries, I'm moving out a large guitar / bass / amp collection and watches are much easier to store, not to mention they are a joy to wear.

I'm originally from Hamilton Ontario, Canada and have been in Dallas for 11 years.
Cheers
Sheldon
