    Hi guys - I've only been lurking a couple of weeks, thought I better introduce myself - I'm new to collecting, I'm currently focused on constellations. I have a modern broad arrow and a 564 SS pie pan.



    Anyway, although my wife can't understand why anyone needs anymore than one watch she's happy for me to add a gold one to my collection; I'm off to a watch fair in Middlesex at the weekend so wish me luck. I'll pop up pictures if I find anything interesting... :).

    Sooo, relevant to the topic - from your experience, roughly how long does this period of amused tolerance last and how soon will I be having packages delivered to friends houses and hiding stuff on tall shelves? :)

    Hey dude, thanks for coming out of the shadows. If you only can have one prototypical example of a vintage Omega, a stainless dog leg lug Constellation with crosshairs is the one to own. :thumbsup:

    Ask her this: "Why does anyone need any more than one pair of black shoes?". Whether she admits it or not, she'll get the point. :D

    You either come to an understanding or you get stuff delivered to the office.

    Maybe one of the guys here could go with you, we've got several Brits about.

    Is that the one at Brunel on Sunday ? I'm negotiating with the Household Diary Comittee for a day release for that one ;)

    I'm heading in with a friend, but it would be good to say hello if anyone is there. :) Pass from HDC already sorted!

    Will let you know. I'm due to be at a family lunch in Herts, so may try to swing by for an hour or two early in the day.
