So either you guys are just the best, or I don't have a life. :-d LOL Maybe it's a combination of both, but as many of you know I landed on WUS in August 2012 (21 months ago) and to say WUS has changed my life in very positive and wallet depleting ways is an understatement! My daily post ratio is about 8 posts per day, which alone qualifies as not having a life, but the truth is I would have wasted the time on other pursuits, so WUS has been a terrific home for me for sure.

I've made some great lifetime friendships along the way! My collection has grown in ways I never imagined it could too. And I've learned so much about watches, thanks to this great community that I can even understand what an escapement or mainspring is. Trust me when I say I had no clue when I joined.

Many thanks to everyone I've had the pleasure of meeting here on WUS!

Here's a short recap of the current collection:

Grand Seiko SGBR083

Muhle Glashutte 29er Big

Baume and Mercier Capeland Flyback

Ebel 1911 BTR Chronograph

Lew and Huey Acionna

Recently departed is my Frederique Constant FC-710 and my Montblanc Star GMT Chronograph. But that was to make room for a new addition to come, which has been ordered, is being made and is XXX/200 and will arrive within the next 3 - 4 weeks.

So most people do a give-away for post milestones... I'm guessing you'll be putting the SBGR083 up for grabs? :p

On a more serious note, congrats and you have built up quite a beautiful collection of watches. I am extremely envious of that GS and anyone who owns one. That thing is a knock-out!

Congrats, Rod! Your chirpy, upbeat posts make WUS a happy place :)

Do you still have your Reverso? And you sold the Freddie C?! I need another clue as to what you have incoming please!

Yes, I still have the Reverso! Hmmm, a clue about incoming. It's big and heavy and was recently in a "bad boy" movie, worn by a Badass character!

Congrats on the 5000th post.

Always appreciate your humor and light hearted responses, however, if you do get a "bam, bam Pam" as LBF suggested above, it can not reside in the same box as the SBGR083. There would not be enough oxygen.

BTW, I'm doing a good job keeping the secret of what you're getting next....you owe me a beer mi' amigo.

Makes sense. I wondered what all of the pointless, rambling posts were about.

Naw, just kidding. LOL!

Congrats!
