Me too. Like girls in a dormitory I think our "cycles" are syncing up. I just haven't been as obsessive the last few days. Maybe I'll actually go a month or two without purchasing a watch.

That said, I await my SNAA91. I don't think the guy shipped it yet but hopefully I'll get it sometime next week.

I told my wife today after our date night, "I've got nothing on the watch wish list. The ones I really want now are just too far out of reach." But in a way I'm happy. I've got the freedom to go in a new direction. I'd like to write a comic short story.

You've been dabbling with fire a bit, focusing on really expensive watches. Maybe that's part of why there isn't anything on your wish list? Everything you want is too expensive. I mean, I"m similar in that the only watch that I REALLY want is an Orient Revolver which isn't available for less than $650 or so, which I can't justify.

I've still got a few that I want, so will probably still be buying watches.But it reminds of something someone once told me with regards to longings,desires, etc, "If you feed it, it will grow." The more you browse and buy, the more you want to buy.

So the key, as I've said before, is to find that happy medium: not over-indulging (and obsessing), but not self-mortifying (and abstaining). The Middle Way, but applied to watches.

Oh yeah, the other watch I really want is the SLT109, which I just found a used one to bid on on Ebay - so please don't bid against me!

Jonny, I saw the SLT109 used. I won't bid on it. I hope you get it on the cheap.
