Use the remainder of the 10K to treat your lady on an incredible luxurious short vacation, pull out all the stops. The works, you know.




I'd pick up a Monta Ocean King. Chaz, you know they are great watches. Hold on to the rest of the $ and wait a bit. In the meanwhile, do the vay-k as suggested. Something else will come your way.
I too like the SuperOcean (see mine below) they are going up in value quickly) Have fun!!

Yeah, holy cow Chaz, this is so neat actually sir !

Would maybe consider multiple watches instead of just one sir.
You know what they say: The more the merrier !

Muhle Glashutte Rasmus...




Teutonia Sport...




Seabattalion…




S.A.R. Rescue Timer...




ProMare Go...





IWC's Aquatimer is special...








Favre Leuba's Raider Harpoon is amazing...








As you know Chaz, the possibilities are endless. Good luck sir !

Well Chaz, you asked for us to whet your appetite. Lotta info for you to process. Have fun.
I seem to remember you saying that you always wanted one of these...

Don't care for that model at all!

I can't help you. Even if I had enough silly money to spend $10K on a watch I wouldn't. I like watches but there's not a watch on the planet to me worth that much money.

I'd have trouble justifying even $5K strapped to my wrist.

I live on Golf Course, ha ha, it's right across the street from my house and I have a brand new cart at well, a 2019 EZGO with the new Lithium-Ion battery, maintenance-free, no filling it up with water like old acid batteries on my last cart. My wife golf's too, and actually has beaten me a couple of times, so it's no big deal.

We used to have a few of the older EZGO's for running around the North Las Vegas Airport, I hopped up one of them with an aftermarket speed controller and that thing flew! lol

So versatile! I'd wear this 24/7, outside of work. The 6 o'clock date, exhibition case back, anti-mag innards and the greatest contribution to escapement design ever! In 41+mm on a bracelet with this dial color, I'd go there.

My wife of 56 years, her name is Big Tilder, had kin that weren't exactly benevolent.
So no inheiritance. We've gone this long with our ship coming in. So what the hey?
Everything we've acquired is from her RN career and my moving freight trains down
the track. You can't miss what you never had!!

I jus wish I had a rich uncle who'd either bequeathed me a PP Calatrava in yeller
gold. Or left m a ton o cash. One or tuther.
