Now at last I got a Chrono, yes!!

I have been talking about a chrono for 'everyday work'.
NO, I don't cook spaghetti - I'm married since 31 years Now at last I got a Chrono, yes!!
But I got 7 houses at this little estate, a boat, two cars 2 dogs to get going.
Some wood to cut or cut down.

Now I used this everyday, for the last 6 months, since I need a chronograph sometimes. 

Now at last I got a Chrono, yes!!

OK, I just looked in ArmbandUhren Catalogue for 2009 and recommended price for this in roségold is 22.000 EUR...

OTH, recommended price for an everyday 'watch for work', an Overseas Chronograph from Vacheron Constantin,
is 14.000 EUR, and that's in simple in steel!!


So I made a fast decision and bought a genuine Chronograph from Ebay, right off. Cash!


Please enjoy the beautiful watch collage, it's om my left arm. 
On my right arm is another in steel!

Now at last I got a Chrono, yes!!

Price was 35 EUR, incl. shipping, for this stunning aluminium watch!

It meets your needs, what else can you ask for?  What will you do with 2 Swatch Chronos now?  I actually like the look of the older one better - it's easier for me to read. BR, Dan
So do I Dan! Problem was that I didn't know I had one!

That is a very nice vintage Rolex Doc...

It is quite a beautiful watch, but not near the beauty of your daughter. I hope she enjoys wearing it and has good luck in Luxembourg.  Your Swatch pieces will be a good substitute until you add the excellent Overseas chrono to your collection. Best, Mike

Oscar Wilde! John Lennon first: " Life is what happens to you when you're busy making other plans " Osacar Wilde, touching what we are engaged with: " We live in an age when unneccesary things are our only necessities " Doc

Hi Doc, I guess these watches are also useful in the operating room to maintain your patients health. Thought this might be on your mind as a physician more than timing your dinner:)). Best of luck Doc with your new Swatch Collection. I do like the pieces you have chosen here. Best wishes, Matt
