Good things come to those that wait...

Well, it was longer than I had expected....but as they say "All's well, that ends well".

I would like to thank you Alex for your patience and your help. I spent yesterday afternoon talking with a fellow watch enthusiast, it was a very enjoyable experience for me. Thanks to you Bernard, it was a pleasure to meet you and the watch will be a reminder of what nice people there are on this planet, both near and far, and how we are all much more similar than we are different.

 Thanks, and my kindest regards to you both. I hope that our paths may cross again one day.
