    Soon on a strap close to you. A black, double ridge shark skin strap with grey seam - matching the subdials.

    The Speedyorite is impossible to photograph. In reality this dial beats almost everything.

    How did you get that A 386 off so quickly? Or is it on the other wrist? ;)

    Long story involving a deal with my wife. For some reason she thinks the A 386 should be a present and I was willing to sell my soul to hit "buy it now."

    Hmm... sounds like a first wife. :p

    When's your birthday?
    Please don't tell me it's in a box marked "do not open 'til Xmas."

    No box, but that was her position. I don't consider the negotiations to be over.

    Dinner, flowers, heels, purse. Some combination will work.

    Good God, I thought only my mother did that. As an act of pure altruism, I am willing to burgle your home for a nominal fee. Let me know when you and the missus are next out and leave the key under the mat. Oh, and tie up the yorkie - that thing is vicious. Meet me at the diner around the corner the next evening. You can keep it at the office.

    My God, she's a terrorist! And we don't negotiate with terrorists. I like LouS's plan - there's a Larry-David-type genius about it.

    There's the ineffable mystery of the female mind. I mean, how do you even come up with a delayed-gratification concept like that? Ok, for fun, if it's the week before Christmas. But it's freaking August, man! This is upsetting me to an unexpected degree. I need a drink.

    I'll get the watch before Christmas. She knows it, I know it. I just have to play along for a little bit to make her feel like she proved a point. Until that time, the watch will remain on a Zenith stand in the middle of the shrine.

    Ineffable women are tough... I've always preferred the effable ones.
    Yes, they are masters of delayed gratification... the hold-out is their bread and butter... and I fully understand this when there is something in it for them, but this... this is just for sport! I too am driven to drink! But at least I am wearing my newly purchased time piece while doing so!
    Harrumph!

    What, out in the open, taunting you every day like some kind of no-touch horological lap dance?! Oh, she is diabolical! But I think I understand it now... you'll have it before Xmas, but there will be another price to be paid first. I'm beginning to respect her genius.
