    When you see these alone, it’s easy to lose sight of how much smaller they were:

    And now I know the name of this deadly siren luring me inextricably to my destruction
    DFD389CB-9C75-4C5F-A39C-925A0FA8287A.jpeg
    Loreley

    (German members will understand)

    I don’t know what it could mean,
    Or why I’m so sad: I find,
    A fairy-tale, from times unseen,
    Won’t vanish from my mind.
    The air is cool and it darkens,
    And quiet flows the Rhine:
    The tops of the mountains sparkle,
    In evening’s after-shine.

    The loveliest of maidens,
    She’s wonderful, sits there,
    Her golden jewels glisten,
    She combs her golden hair.
    She combs it with a comb of gold,
    And sings a song as well:
    Its strangeness too is old
    And casts a powerful spell.

    It grips the boatman in his boat
    With a wild pang of woe:
    He only looks up to the heights,
    Can’t see the rocks below.
    The waves end by swallowing
    The boat and its boatman,
    That’s what, by her singing,
    The Lorelei has done.

    You lose one you gain one :( ( no point in a separate thread)

    The current lady 'A' has this evening decided to change her watch focus, as a result my Seiko Gen 2 has moved to a more slender wrist and I now have a white dialed Seamaster :unsure:

    Next you know she will have her own account ?

    This strap will have to go,
