Member for 4.5 years but this is my first post!

I joined four and a half years ago but never posted.
I picked up my new 116610ln on Sunday and started reading the forum again so I thought I should say hello.

I decided to buy the sub but to my amazement, there was a year-long waiting list at my local AD! It's the late 1990's again! I made a few calls and all of the UK dealers I called said they could only put me on their list! Then I had a call from an AD 200 miles away and they said they had one I could have! I paid a deposit over the phone and picked it up on Sunday. I was quite happy only looking for a week before getting one.

I have 3 main watches the new 116610ln an Omega Speedmaster pro tintin and an amazing 1985 Seiko golden tuna in new condition.
