"Sub Rosa"...those secretive gems.

I could have entitled this "Sub Radar", but "Sub Rosa" has a more medievally mysterious ring to it, though the meaning is roughly similar. This is really about those superb and slightly "secret" watches that don't get noticed by people who are not watchie types. I know ...

I'm so glad you keep reminding my that my overall best-performing watch over the last 5 years (easily - hands down) is such rubbish.

Re: Discussion: Maturing as a collector

Interesting topic. When I started out I imagined that my journey would not progress beyond the odd CW. (Stage 2) I became a bit indiscriminate for a while, especially with regard to cheaper vintage watches (^Stage 3/4 - q.v.)

Re: If you could choose just one...

It would be the C63 Elite for me, on the Ti bracelet.
