Buying a submariner

Lovely. If you don't mind me asking, did you buy this new?

Yes I did - in Amsterdam. On a rare excursion to follow my team (Tottenham) for the Champions League semi-final, I popped into an authorised dealer in the city on the afternoon and asked after the model (I've been looking for one for many months). The sales folk had a whispered consultation and then pulled one out of their stock cupboard for me. Absolutely gobsmacked - especially as the shop was mobbed with tourists asking for any stainless steel sports model - they told me the difference was my genuine interest only in the one model.

Combined with that night's result, it was one of the best days I think I've had!

That's one way to celebrate! LOL. Fair play, I've never heard of something like that happening.

Hoping to beat you in the final, though.......... :)
