    As 2023 is soon coming to an end, the joyful and sparkling times of love and celebration bring us time to reflect and be thankful for another wonderful year. While icey snow covers the ground with a glittery shine, we count down til' the whorological Santa pops in with a gift under the Christmas tree. Santa please, I promise I been a watch collectin' good boy this year. For me, this has been one of the best years of my life and even though I will only be off work for 17 days over Christmas, I can look back at the year with a warm feeling in my shining silver heart. Will 17 days be enough to relax and recover properly during Christmas and New Year? I truly dont know but hope so, I really hope so. At least we can all look forward to the annual February vacation.

    How does the whorological Santa deliver his mechanical gifts? Is he racing on aqua? Which piece did you wear the most this year? Personally I been mostly aquaracin' with joy all year and it has been great. I recall my first dive watch love back in 2017, the ever so lovely WAY211B. It was a magical feeling finally being able to acquire an Aquaracer this year, the mighty Ice Diver. Thanks again to my good friend Brobert for gifting me the super sweet rubber strap.

    The Christmas tree is finally decorated again, allowing for some glorious watch photography. So my fellow watch addict friends, join me in spreading some love and sparkling joy as we get closer to Christmas and New Year!

    The Holy Silver One has beamed a pure light spirit blessed with peace and love for all on your dial. Not sure if I am worthy of posting any of my own Christmas wrist shot pics now.

    Ya nailed this one bro, great shot. With the mini blinds casting shadows parallel to the overlapped hands. And the sparkle of Christmas glistening on both sides of that classic case too! :)
