    Wabi-Sabi ..... Its the essence of why vintage is so compelling.
    In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence, specifically impermanence, suffering and emptiness or absence of self-nature. Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty,

    If you're ever in So Cal, or I'm in Boston, we should meet up for a photo session to compare the two side-by-side.

    Best,

    Spent the morning on the sideline of a soccer pitch under an umbrella in the pouring rain for my middle son's first preseason game. Only one watch to wear on such occasions, Invicta 9937 -- 40mm, 25 jewels ETA 2824-2 automatic, sapphire crystal and case back, rated at 200m. It must be at least fifteen years old now, has never been serviced and it keeps great time. It has been my "go to" watch for adventures in (and below) five of the Seven Seas, the rain forests of South and Central America, sandboarding the dunes in the Peruvian desert, skiing the peaks of North America east to west, shoveling snow from my driveway, pulling weeds in my garden, giving my kids baths when they were young, and washing the dishes. Invicta takes a lot of heat, often deservedly so, but dollar for dollar this has been a great watch that punches well above its weight. I think it is time to treat it to a new ceramic bezel insert.
