    This is a very fluid question for me, but it seems the last few months I've settled on wanting to find a SS vintage triple date moonphase such as the Omega Cosmic seen below (photo compliments of @cristos71 ) :D..:

    What do you hope to start the New Year with?

    I hope to hit the Powerball in 2017. If that happens, here's my itinerary:

    1) Drive down the AC Expressway to Margate NJ to order my Henriques Sportfisherman.
    2) Drive up the Parkway to NYC and buy a Breguet 5196BB from the boutique in Manhattan. (Might stop for pizza at John's on Bleecker or Chinese food at Wo Hop)
    3) Drive down NJ Turnpike and PA Turnpike to drop off my company materials and master key at the office in Bensalem PA.
    4) Drive home and call my contractor, then buy plane tickets to Florida & Hawaii while the house is being revamped.

    I love that you know exactly what to do when you hit it...

    ...but I think you might be best off buying a private helicoptor with pilot to make it easier on yourself... chances are, your wife will end up inheriting all of your Powerball earnings as you succumb to either road rage, an errant cab driver, or a Jersey-wildman in a jalopy...

    5) Start a TGDW forum where Speedmaster posts are not allowed. Hint - you can do this any time BTW...;)

    Cheers, Al

    If that be Dennis' forum, then I suppose it stands for 'This G*d-D*m Watch' forum?

    Should be GDYAWS watch forum...:D

    If I get aggressive...a DRSD.

    More than likely would like to upgrade my 1675, and get out of one 1680 and into a nice 5512 or 1655.

    An Ed White would be nice...

    Honestly, we will just have to see what tomorrow brings!

    When I hit the Powerball, I hop a flight to Geneva and visit the Patek Museum. I find reference 1415-1 HU and ask a staff member: "Is this the gift shop?"

    "No monsieur, this is an exhibit room."

    "You are mistaken. Today it is the gift shop."

    After brief, burgundy-soaked negotiations over duck at Le Chat-Botte, the curator and I reach an understanding. And I return home with this:
