    Don't provoke him to change it. I feel like I have a little bit of ownership for that avatar. :)

    In honour of this week's Masters golf tournament.

    As I write this, McIlroy is at Even par after 5 holes in round one. Needs to put his skates on.

    The watch is on its way for service @styggpyggeno1 but I'll do my best with some pictures.
    The first pictures is from when I first laid hands on it... hasn't happened much since then actually, just a quick polish of the plexi..
    What I really like about this watch is the diversity of it, changing straps and you manage to wear ot to pretty much anything. I used the watch a couple of weeks ago in a military exercise and there wasn't a problem.
    I know a guy who's a pilot of the JAS Gripen, would be awesome to get some pictures of him wearing this "Viggen" in action.. I'll try to arrange that :D .. Oh, the pictures, almost forgot.

    @donkii I really envy your photo skills! You even manage to make those pretentious hand-in-pocket shots look good :)

    Thanks for those kind words :D But it's not really any skills to be honest. I've seen people with skills but for a happy amateur I'm pleased :) Would like to buy a better camera house instead of the old Nex-5.. All photos is taken with a 50-year old manual lens btw

    Hey! That was skill... I intentionally left it out of focus so you couldn't see how dirty it was.

    I have realized that it's quite attractive. The author of Heuer Chronographen expressed interest in it too

    I have no idea what numbers they were made in, but as Norway has about two working military aircrafts operative at any one time, there can't be many!
