Thanks for this Abel. I think we all needed something inspirational to sum up the last year and you've pretty much covered all the bases here.
I dont know whether it would be considered a blessing or a curse to have so many lovely watches to come through your hands over the course of a year. It must test your will and bank balance to have so many "goodies" sat before you.
Ah, who am i kidding, we all know its a blessing. ;-)
Thankyou for giving our beloved Heuer's a new and longer life. This is the best pictorial posting i've seen on this forum - i love the insight into these watches from the watchmakers point of veiw, it brings me closer to them. I am wise enough not to open and mess with my own watches.
Cheers - Darren
