    It's being thankful. It's OK to say. It is not virtue signalling for sure. Age as I'm sure Bro 59 will attest makes one more aware that another year has passed...

    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.
    There you go....

    I don't share much personal stuff irl. OoO knows more than my community lol. Did get some good news on a granddaughter yesterday. The bigger your brood gets the more to worry.

    Use lucky instead?

    I think Brother Galaga feels the need to try to explain to us why he doesnít plan to acquire another Rolex, which of course he doesnít have to do. We all have our own self imposed rules dictating what we do and do not buy. Of course those rules are fluid, never static. Galaga doesnít virtue signal unless heís pissed about something.

    Rolex is the most important thing. You need an attitude adjustment and should reset your priorities. Brother Galaga too.

    While I may purchase another Rolex (16570 or 216570), I like the variety of my collection....
    If you are interested in the 16570 consider getting one from about the last three years of production as many had the newer 3186 movement.

    I like to GMT hand of the older model, but the size, bracelet and movement of the newer model. I'm beginning to understand that it's never an easy decision with Rolex. Omega is criticised for offering too many varieties with different coloured bezels, bracelets and straps, but you at least have a better chance of finding what you like without too many compromises.

    I recommend you get rid of your Omegas, Tudor, and Breitling, and drastically drop your price on the Graham. Also trade your PAM 111 for either a 000 or 005 with solid caseback. Then buy a Hulk for an exorbitant price from a gray dealer.

    OK levity aside, I too like some variety with my collection, keeping in mind Iím likely to take a financial soaking whenever I sell or trade almost any non Rolex.
