Andrew. You may as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb. Get the Reverso. (as well :) )

This reminds me of the time I mistakenly told my wife that if I got the speedmaster I wouldn't need any more watches. She now tells me ... "You said you wouldn't get any more"

The new Serica 5303 has been on the top of my list lately. The other day I showed a picture of the white dial and black dial side by side to my wife. I asked her which she preferred and she said, "Just get them both. Then you have one of each." :shock: I think it is a trap. 8)
Current CW = C65 Trident Vintage GMT, C65 Dartmouth, C60 Trident Ombré COSC LE, C65 Super Compressor

In Review:

2 More CW's on the short list! (This is pretty much a lie - I have at least 17 CW Tabs open at the moment!)

Always introduce your wife as "my first wife", or "my current wife".:)

Now this is what I call clarifying your priorities !

I feel very lucky that my own better half is unlikely to notice which watch I'm wearing on any given day and so doesn't notice the new ones.

As long as she doesn't find the box on the doorstep when she gets home or finds a receipt I haven't hidden properly, then I can generally get away with it. The other trick, of course, is separate bank and credit card accounts...

I met up with my girlfriend / partner this morning for a coffee and she asked me if I had bought any watches this week (in the last seven days).

Yes, in a manner of speaking, was my reply; as I'd traded one for another with a small cash adjustment - C60 Trident Mk3 for C1 Jump Hour. :wink: :wink:
