Guidelines really rather than rules. Everyone takes something different from wpac- my goal was never total abstinence for example but just to curtail those frivolous purchases that weren’t at least well thought out and considered: your goals may be different and hornets different still. One thing is constant - we are all here because we felt we were spending too much time, money or both on watches.I'm pretty sure @Hornet99 has gone to a circle of hell reserved for those who espouse "do as I say", rather than "do as I do". I thought he had just declared that his job was at an end, but others are saying he bought a watch.
The worst thing really is that WPAC rules apply equally to a £60 trinket from the House of Pagani to a £10000 waste of money on expensive ateliers. The first is pocket change. There should be a minimum cost for bashing (note that my opinions are often discredited)
