    SOTC 3/25/13

    Since I got the TSAR, I figured I'd update my State of the Collection, in the order I acquired them (top row left to right, then bottom row the same). Doing this I realized the TSAR is my first new watch in ten years!
    Either I've been satisfied with the ones I have (I am), or my enthusiasm for WISdom exceeds my budget (it does).

    Did you say your first new piece in TEN YEARS?????

    Are you coming to the Wash GTG? If so, would it bother you if I just stared at you in awe the whole time? I'm blown away... I haven't bought a new watch in 10 days.. and I won't make it another 10 months.. amazing!

    Oh and love your collection. All rugged pieces with class.... very very nice.

    Camguy...been following your TSAR acquisition and am super happy you liked it.

    If you could bottle that will power to not buy a watch in 10 years, you'll be able to buy any watch you want by selling it to all of us!

    Super collection BTW!

    You have remarkable restraint! If this your first new watch in a decade, you should be teaching self-control courses to WIS/WUS so you can fund your watch budget!

    I love the sword hands on your Omega Great White, and I wish it was still possible to get that watch new. I'm not a fan of the new hands on the Seamaster Pro.

    I'm sensing a theme here...
    Thanks for the compliments, for sure, but believe me, I don't have a superpower or anything.
    I think after the Seamaster GMT my desires grew rapidly beyond my means, and picking up a $70 Poljot just didn't cut it any more. A Glashütte Senator Navigator? Sure! A Speedmaster? Only if it's a "dot over 90." Double red? *yawn* Got a Milsub?

    The TSAR was a "Wow!," however, and 39% off at topspecus... irresistible! Maybe a Stowa Flieger Baumuster B next.
    Unfortunately it's also the first watch my wife wants to "borrow", and also unfortunately it looks great on her!
    At any rate, my beatification as a guru of self-restraint is a pleasant surprise. I figured the reaction would be more like "poor schmuck, let's send him a sympathy Parnis."
