Oh man Frans, didn't see that coming. So sorry that happened. 😔
I was just thinking that maybe you gave it away, or even sold it
possibly. But it sounds like so many years later that you have
a really fantastic attitude about what happened. Really making
a terrific lemonade out of those lemons you were given. 🙂😉
I mean it sounds like you still enjoy the hobby as much as ever,
but have a very balanced, and common sensical view of things
as well sir. (y)
At the time I wasn't as cool and collected over it as I am now. I was devastated because it took me a long time to save up for it. But ever since my dear Anne became so ill, all that was rendered unimportant. I only sold two watches in my life, a Cartier Santos Dumont Carré (1979 issue in stainless steel) to my brother to fund a Cartier Tank Vermeil. And I sold that watch after a year because it was a big mistake.

(y)Can totally understand sir. It had to be really terrible when it first
happened. Then can imagine it possibly happening again was maybe
on your mind too. But, as you are saying there actually is so much
more in life that is so much more important it's not even a comparison. 😉

Hey, I wonder if your brother still has, and enjoys that Cartier Santos
Dumont Carre Frans. At least you know it went to a good home !
Sorry about the Cartier Tank Vermeil, but can imagine your focus
went toward either family. Or any one of you other ultra cool hobbies
honestly !!! 😎😎
