    I kinda mentioned it to the wife yesterday in passing...

    She was like "why did Art (dealer salesman) say it would be difficult for you to buy the ceramic Daytona?"

    I said l, "because it goes to clients who spent more first..."

    She says, "Good. I'm glad you can't get one then."

    During my honeymoon... Still my favorite watch of my collection.

    Stainless Daytona... Now how to finagle the new Daytona ceramic without the wife knowing...

    Any ideas guys? @mrbiron ?

    So... of all things to take a pic of, mind you, during your honeymoon. You managed to take time out and posed ( who know how many times ), to take a pic of a watch? During your honeymoon? Lolol. Legit funny.

    Since it was during your honeymoon, I am not sure if you were timing yourself Tarzan... You know, fist pounding to chest, but the seconds hand...ticks a little fast.

    Yep. It takes like a second to take a pic. What did you expect? I post pics of my honeymoon on a watch thread? I took like a hundred pics of things other than my watch. Next time, before I take a pic of something, I'll make sure to run it by you.

    Though on a more serious note, I recall exactly what was going on with this pic. The time was 7:59pm, we had reservations at the restaurant at 8pm, I was waiting for my wife to get ready.

    Anybody that uses the word "rocking" in place of "wearing" seriously needs to consider their right to exist.

    "Keep on wearing in the free world" doesn't have the same kind of chutzpah to it.

    Also, I knew Dave Mustaine back when he was still in Metallica and he was not a good person, therefore I find your username objectionable. :D

    If I felt I had to voice concerns at all the stupid stuff I see daily it would be enough to drive a person insane.

    Exactly. It's bad enough having to read it. If I had to correct it, I probably WOULD go insane. :p

    I see you have placed the adverb before the verb, are you emphasizing the verb? Because with modal verbs, most prefer to place the adverb after the verb.

    They make really nice watches at a reasonable price point. This is my second Oris I had the original Aquis small seconds before this 2017 version. Hard to tell in the pic but this is a sunburst blue dial, really pops in the sun. Don't foresee myself ever parting with this watch

    That’s classic.
