    Same for me and Game Of Thrones. Only instead of worthless posts, it's worthless plot conventions and worthless battle scenes.

    Proof positive that if you try to hard and take your eye off the ball bad things happen. But I’m comfortable and most importantly healthy as is my family. That’s the most important thing.

    The GMT ticked the most boxes. I always wanted that one and settled on the explorer when I thought I couldnít get one at retail anymore. I must admit Iím only probably going to ever have one due to economic reasons.

    Iím comfortable and most importantly healthy as is my family. Thatís the most important thing. I couldnít justify buying another Rolex anytime soon. Yes I know you will suggest to flip the Tudor and Omega for another Rolex. That should take at least another 2 years of forum discussion.

    Iím fortunate to have one Rolex to be honest and I was lucky. If they were reasonably attainable like Seiko Iíd buy 10.

    And yes I love my beaters too. They donít count.
    I feel the same way. My core collection of decent watches currently consists of:

    Rolex GMT 116710LN
    Omega SMPc
    Omega Speedy Moon
    Tudor BB red ETA
    Breitling Superocean
    Doxa 300T Poseidon
    PAM 111
    Graham 1695 Chronofighter (on the block)

    + a number of beaters....

    While I may purchase another Rolex (16570 or 216570), I like the variety of my collection....

    That is an excellent deal.

    BNIB seems to go for around $4K in the U.S.

    I paid $3.5K for my mint Dec 2018 Speedy moon.

    Probably 'cuz healthcare is stupidly expensive.

    Wait, I'm thinking of the USA...
