    As most of you are aware I got married last month which is without a doubt my best acquisition. But it gets better as I needed to find time to fly to Tokyo from Vietnam to pick up another recent acquisition which was just fine with my new bride so off I went for the day and this is the end result. To add to the new Apollo 11 obsession.

    Only 500 made, white gold, chronometer and beautiful movement with see through back...

    Your focus is incredible. My stuff is all over the place. I wish I had your discipline. Hell, I wish I had your collection. That group shot is phenomenal. I think you should buy Buzz Aldrin next. What's left?
