    Help, I have gone totally crazy!

    Hi All

    For some time, I have had the suspicion that I was slowly, but surely going mad. Now it is more than a suspicion, it is definitive! I have made another Alpina purchase. This my third Alpina in less than three months, a brand that I hardly knew six months ago before seeing some at a retailer in person for the first time.

    Today I received a package from UPS

    I have to get the bracelet sized, as it is way too big for my fat wrist

    So for now, will wear it on an old leather strap I have!

    One of the rules I always used to have was not to buy a new watch right after another, so I had time to enjoy it before going to something else. That rule has gone totally out the window!

    Cheers
    Tony

    Okay, in no particular order.

    A) this Alpina is gorgeous. It would practically have been wrong not to get it.

    B) I am no stranger to buying 2 watches back to back. In fact I tend to pause then get 2. Although I probably need to break this habit..

    C) Yes you are mad. Madness loves company. :grinning:

    Rules don't apply when it's one like that. Will have to keep my eye out for one of those. Either it really is that good looking or you have a touch for photography.

    My photography sucks, and taken with the iPhone, so the correct answer is 1 :)

    One thing a moonphase complication makes clear - time passes quickly. I'm astonished at how fast it spins around!

    Life is short, congrats on the new watch!

    Speaking for myself, I've done something similar...though not necessarily the same brand back to back to back... Enjoy!

    Fighting the urge to buy one. Keep telling myself I already have too many watches, too many chronos and too many autos. I already have an Alpina so I know they're in general sweet but that dial color and the raised numerals are something else.
