    Well, you know how stainless steel is the new platinum? PT950 is the old stuff. ;)

    Congrats, it's a stunner!

    Thank you @1685 . Today we got a better look at the new locks site on the Atlantic side (new Gatun Locks) for which construction is wrapping up, but they are currently still "dry". Although we cannot see the bottom of the locks from this angle, we do see the three levels from sea level (horizon) to Gatun Lake's elevation. New gates will be sliding out of the walls where we see the full height vertical dark lines

    Panning left we see the temporary dyke separating Lake Gatun from the entrance to these new locks which will soon be blown up and dredged out. Note the ships waiting to enter and descend the old locks further up and to the right of the picture.

    Oh, and today I wore another trusty travel companion of mine, the Speedmaster X-33, with jet-lag rousing alarm. :confused:
    Rubber strap borrowed from a Speedmaster Solar Impulse, which is easily adjusted for tropical environments!

    Final purchase of the year just arrived. Legendary 4520 movement -- the one that beat everything but the quartz watches in the last chronometer competition held at Neuchatel in 1968 -- in a crisp 1969 case.

    Fine dining in Bangkok today following street food lunch yesterday, the price is shockingly nice at 10usd++/person. The venue is called Zanotti.
