    A277, will be changing the strap later today. Got a nice one from the French that I think would suit it well.

    Among the items I collect is watch collector books and price guides. Your watch shows up in many of them that I have, but the only one I have in which your Waltham is specifically called "Ruby" is the "Bible" I mentioned. This book is the Shugart, Engel, and Gilbert Complete Price Guide to Watches. My latest is the 2014 edition, but the 2016 book will be available soon. Before anyone chooses to take me to task at having called it the "bible", that is purely a catch all name. It is not a real "in depth" reference on any one make. People delight in pointing out what they perceive to be errors and omissions in the book. It is about the closest thing to an "encyclopedia" of watches, and it is a very good book for a beginning collector who has a thirst for basic knowledge. You aren't going to learn nearly as much about Omega (for example) in this book as is available to you on this MB. Same goes with many other makes. No book collection is complete without brand specific collector guides. And the Internet, of course.

    I missed Tuesday. I'm assuming this will make up for it.

    Showing the TV screen some love as I can't remember the last time I wore it to work.

    Now that I have a few from which to choose, it is hard to decide which watch to wear. Do I match the clothes to the watch or the watch to the clothes? Decisions, decisions.
