This surprisingly happened last Friday.

So this year my wife and celebrate 20 years together and I got a promotion.  In January, after finding out about the promotion, I called up an AD that's been very good to me and asked my amazing SA if she could get me a Pepsi on jubilee to celebrate anniversary and promotion.  She told me what we all know, that it's almost impossible to get, but she would try. Told me it could be years. Last person who she sold one to waited 10 years. I figured as much and I was fine with that. I visited a couple times cause I enjoy talking watches with her and I texted once to see if there was any movemen on it. Last month I let her know when we'd be visiting and I confirmed it last Monday.

So my wife and I go to Vegas on Friday to celebrate our anniversary for the weekend.  While she is getting ready to go out, I go to my SA.  I walk in and I see what is in the top pic above.

I noticed the colored ribbons, but I don't piece it together. I'm just very overwhelmed she got us the cake. I'm a retired veteran, just thought the colored ribbons were for that.  Then I look in the display window behind her and there sits....

Wow. Your SA is the best!

She REALLY is.  I met her May of 2021 and this is the third one she's gotten me.  The Polar she got me in November last year is the ONLY new one she's been able to allocate since in came out in April last year.

And my wife and I absolutely loved that cake from Carlo's.  It was a great anniversary weekend. My wife won 1600 bucks on slots, we ate at an Italian place that was amazing, went to an NHL game and my team won.  Just awesome!

Wowzers beautiful watch and story!!!!!

Thank you!.  My wife and I agree, it was the perfect weekend.

I think that’s what I like best about watches, there’s usually a backstory that is so special and meaningful that it really overshadows the actual watch.

Wow! It's a fairy tale! 

Congrats!

Yeah, I love hearing the stories myself, so I had to share this.

Now that’s one happy way to celebrate and it has a story to go with it. Congratulations!

Good for you, sounds like you accumulated a lot of good karma points. Enjoy the honeymoon with the watch and wife!

Congratulations on your anniversary! The SA really went above and beyond. I gotta ask... what's your purchase history with the AD? Asking because I live in Las Vegas.
