No, I think you're wrong about something. Toward the end of this video, you say that you don't think it's true that if you purchased the Breitling, you would eventually aspire to something else. That would be "the end" for you. I have to say, I think even if you worked up to that coveted watch----in time----less time than you think---you would covet something else. It might not be a more expensive watch. It might be another Breitling. It might be a watch that is priced lower---or would would see another execution that would blow you away. This is by no means an easy enough hobby to solve a "problem" that easily. If it was, you could sell all of your watches and be very much on your way to getting that Breitling. It would take sacrifice---wearing a cereal box watch or no watch at all while you saved---but that is within range. You already have thousands of dollars worth of watches. I'm here to tell you----this hobby is a moving target. There are grails behind the grails. I used to think "one more and this will do it." And now I know that's nonsense. I just ordered a watch that I've wanted for a long time----actually, a MOVEMENT that I've wanted for a long time: The Valjoux 7750. That deal was completed yesterday and the watch hasn't shipped yet. I'm already thinking about what's next. By the way, I have an Aeromatic brand knock-off of this Breitling----and it's stunning---and I must say, a convincing homage. https://www.google.com/search?q=breitling&espv=2&biw=994&bih=636&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=dCM-VbuwCIHosQXgo4HgBg&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg#imgrc=3z2HATMTE1t5dM%253A%3BCWLdv-2WLmwWJM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.shreve.com%252Fblog%252FUserFiles%252Fimage%252F30_%252520Breitling(3).jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.shreve.com%252Fblog%252Fcategory%252FBreitling%3B1187%3B1079
