    Felt heavy yesterday. I am no lighter today.

    This pic is seven years old and both focus (or maybe more like - too few pixels) and colours are off. Still a wonderful and hefty piece of Omega history. Corderoy of course - or maybe i it was tweed... It was not a wet suit I am sure.

    Funnily, I don't wear this one as much as I should. So not likely me on IG, but the lollipop is definitely the draw to this reference.

    Hey, don't see it as you didn't win the auction. See it as I didn't lose it instead. Better? :)

    Next time let me know and I'll keep away!! :)

    I'll contend myself in knowing that I at least managed to cost you a few kronor ;)

    Anyway, I am happy to see the watch on OF. A lot of nice pieces on that auction, perhaps unsurprising that most of them went rather expensive in the end :(


    A recent discount buy here:

    Turned out rather well after some sanding paper and Brasso on the plexi and a good soak in warm soap water:

    A shame that the bezels for these apparently are unavailable :(

    I'm a new member to the Connie Club. Just arrived last night and I'm over the moon excited. Omega Constellation, 751 cal., 27 serial number puts it around 1968. Now I just need to get the right strap/bracelet for it!! L

    I was in Fond du Lac, WI this week for business (which is near Milwaukee). I'm told that means "Lake of Cheese". Wisconsinites are pretty psyched about their cheese in a lot of ways, the lake being just one.

    Now for the good part. Our meetings ended early yesterday so I took the opportunity to see if I could shake the hand of Sheriff David Clarke. I knew it would be a long shot, but I had time, so I went. When I introduced myself to the nice receptionist, and told her I was just visiting from Maine to shake the Sheriff's hand, she went to get someone. The Sheriff was busy but his Senior Commander wasn't. He spent a few minutes with me and insisted I take a coffee mug home. An impressive man in his own right; friendly and gracious to boot. Here is the mug:
