35 years with Rolex, still going strong...

I never got around to make an introductory post. So here it is:

My name is Chris (yes, huge Blade Runner fan) and I live in the Tampa Bay area on a beautiful little island, enjoying life.

I have been a Rolex customer for over 35 years, mainly professional models and currently try to keep my collection to <10. But to fail is human, right?

Next on my bucket list is a GMT steel/gold, fortunately I have time to wait for one. In the meantime, my 116710BLNR is my current favorite.

Cheers,

Chris
