The Chase

Postby attila350 » April 7th 2017, 9:09pm

Has anyone noticed that chasing your dream watch if more fun than actually finding it? I have searched for a Tutima Fligerchronograph-G for about ten years, everyone who wants a gold Rolex has one, however finding this one was hard,I guess anyone who has one wants to keep it,or are asking way too much money, but I finally got one for $1500 under scrap price, and now that I have it ,I miss the hunt....

Well, ownership has its rewards as well: display that rare bird so that we can compliment you on your persistence, good taste, and eye for a decent price - let's see the damn thing! :mrgreen:

^^^^^^ I'm good at hunting, but I don't particularly enjoy it. Gimme the watch.
