My milgauss. The z blue is a fantastic watch. It has a fun look and the sapphire is magnificent. I ended up selling it to my brother when I was moving things around in my collection. I would never travel with it as the faraday cage around the movement would set metal detectors off

Has anyone taken a break after living with their SO? We’ve been talking about getting engaged, but I don’t feel ready to say yes.

I love and care for him so deeply, but I also feel so scared of it not working out. I want to tell him that we should take some time and space, but I worry he’ll not want to and then I need to figure out if I should walk away??
