    Three months later I was missing having a Speedy. I almost picked up another modern version there and then, but after we couldn’t agree on a price with the seller I decided to take a look at vintage. Boom! A few weeks later I picked up an amazing 1988 145.022 on a 1450 bracelet, in great shape. I’m in love with it and it would be hard to imagine parting with it.
    So my journey has been very similar to yours.
