it started 3 days ago, and it's kind of a nasty one. i'll be happy when i'm better.

what kind of watch does one buy to mark the occasion of getting over a bad cold?

I'd say something related to the medical field... a pulsometer chronograph. I'd recommend this Montblanc :

It’s not upside down if you’re looking at it upside down

that's the leader so far. though i have to nitpick on that upside-down VI.
Yeah - if there were other numbers arranged radially, I'd want it upside down. (I don't like radial numbers - arabic or roman - that switch radial orientation part way around.)

But since there aren't others, I could go either way with it.

There are a bunch of other high-end or high-end-ish pulsometers out there too :

Something with a nice long (like 8 days) power reserve. Wind it up the next time you start feeling sick and set it aside to see what lasts longer between your cold and the power reserve.

You mean getting over a common cold is a valid excuse to buy a new watch?

Please somebody show me where I can find some cold virus.

And on and on and on and on and on....

Might as well go for the gusto and get a Patek. Colds are nasty buggers. ;-)
