Dreaming of ....

Dear friends

I am sure you all have to deal with the situation that is going on in the world right now - one way or another. We are all affected to various degrees by what has happened and what lays before us.
I apologize for my absence in the last few days, as I have myself been very busy, trying to reorganize (most of) my life and plan the best I can for the situation ahead of us.

Discussing expensive watches, in this moment of global events, can seem like a meaningless and superficial undertaking - when so many people are suffering or die and the economy is going way south.
 
However - dont we all need some place to rest our tired minds, even if just for a minute.  Talk about our dream watches and the beauty we see. We are all dreaming of a future, where we have finally put this horror behind us and can go back to where arguing about after sales service and Nautilus prices seems terribly important.

I think, our community seems even more meaningful than before, in this moment. With old friends and the new one joining in.

Stay safe and let us enjoy our community life together none
Christian



Here is a watch I am dreaming of - BIG TIME- the Repetition Souveraine....Isnt it beautiful?

This picture is next to my trusty old Chronometre Souveraine Notice almost the same dimensions. the CS is  Pt cased where the Repeater is cased in steel as it gives a better tonality and amplitude.

An other detail I love is the blue print on the dial. this watch is so discreet and elegant. The only giveaway is the hammer cutout in the dial, adding nicely to the composition of the rest of the dial.

I remember quite clearly when this watch came out. I was able to see it in Paris. It immediately became a dream of mine to own it. Something I would love to realize one day if luck and means will permit me.

Thanks for the wise and kind words that I fully share my friend. And YES it is definitely a very beautiful watch. You know what, your post reminds me I have to take photos of some watches I want to post. This includes a great Hentschel I have to talk about, a rare bird that has joined the nest, and... some chiming ones...

Dearest, Mike Thank you for your kind words I cant wait to here more about the Hentschel. What a fantastic evening we had and I was lucky to be seated next to Andreas. He made a lasting impression on me, speaking about his philosophy and his very eanest and and detaile...

Great sentiment Christian... It’s certainly been a very unsettling experience over the past few days. I have just been told by a friend that works in a hospital, that thieves have stolen sizeable quantities of toilet rolls and hand sanitizer from the hospital. We are certainly living...

Thank you so much, Dear Cpt Yes we are all shocked. The speed by which the situation escalates is overwelming and it is difficult to keep up. My wife is a doctor and she is already working a lot extra. Lets all be sensible and stay home. Flatten the curve! Thank you so much for your...

Thanks for the nice words Christian, that I can only share. By keeping a positive tone here on WPS, we are making it an even more precious "safe space" for all friends seeking comfort or just a mental distraction at this time... An important, extra form of service until the world reopens -- hopefully very soon. Ta...

Dearest, Fab I appreciate your kind words. I have you and your wonderful country in mind. I was saying to my wife today; when the world is normal again, first we are going to Italy on a long vacation. My best thoughts to you and yours.
