Size:  49.5 KBnteresting thing happened today when I was getting ready to do my usual Sunday Cleaning. The wife came home and asked what I was doing? Now,..I'm a (Newb, Boot, Rookie, New Guy etc..) to WUS but my love for wrist watches goes back many, many years. My wife.. ehh...not so much. I started cleaning the VSA I recently purchased, when I mentioned to her that I put most of my collection up for sale on the bay ( I know, I know.. but it IS for a good reason). We started talking prices and watches etc and before I knew it.........she tells me, " Well I have a swiss army,... and a watch...maybe called "Raymond Weil? " that we could put up for sale. "Oh and I also have a Seiko somewhere that is really nice,... Ok everyone take a breath....I got the VSA and Raymond Weil in hand and gave a quick once over. Gave them a quick scrub (they were very grimy) and took some pics. So after all these years..my wife,,,,who does not want ANYTHING to do with my watch addiction..has a great collection???? Well, as you can guess I need to do some more research on this..but for now here are the Sunday cleaning pics..more pics to come after I find all of her stash.....rock on.....

    I'm not sure I understand. So she had a Swiss Army and a Raymond Weil that you didn't know about?

    I doubt my wife has anything hidden away. If she's not into them it's not surprising she has just forgotten them though.
