    The Bivouac's barometer got a workout on the flight home.
    Waiting to take off, at 765 mmHg.

    Cruising altitude of around 30,000 feet, at 577 mmHg. If I had thought to set the bezel properly, the cabin pressure would have registered as the pressure at an altitude of roughly 8,000 feet.

    I wore several watches today.

    I started off with the Seiko SRP453 with a yobokies stainless shroud.

    Had a chance to stop in at the Galleria today. My favorite watch store, the Omega Boutique, was closed for renovations.

    The Rolex boutique was entertaining. My wife picked out a Rolex Skydweller for me. She had no idea how much that one cost. I have never really looked at one of these before. It is a fascinating watch. Amazing movement. I now want one.

    That bezel rotates to select which function is being set by the crown.

    I also checked out the IWC Porto Fino with the 8 day movement at torneau. That's an interesting watch.

    And back to the trusty Seiko SRP453k Baby Tuna

    Tried on a Seamaster at Costco today. This one's much more to my liking than one I tried on a few months ago. Gorgeous, big, and heavy.

    A lot bigger than my Megaquartz.

    The Omega boutique is good- usually some interesting museum pieces on display. Tourbillon on the lower floor of Galleria is also great if you want to look at scary-priced watches.
