    So I spent the majority of July in the Galapagos, right on the Equator. A trip I highly recommend to everyone. Amazing animals on land and under the waves. A trip of a lifetime.

    I wore my Hodinkee edition Seiko Alpinist, which I thought was kinda funny. All the instructions for using the compass bezel talk about pointing the hour hand at the sun and setting the point halfway between that and 12 as North on the Southern hemisphere and as South in the Northern hemisphere.

    So does a compass bezel work at all on the Equator?

    In Vancouver for a couple of days, staying at the Fairmont, with an Omega Boutique on site (“don’t you dare jB”, said Mrs.1128)!
    Picked up a new pair of shoes for the 3594.50

    And also had the chance to try on the Apollo 8 (awesome) but having just bought a new house in Seattle and a jr.1128 arriving in just a few short weeks, I wisely opted to settle for a wrist shot...

    Get the parade warmed up, it's finally happened on a Tuesday, only because my PO was 6 inches further away.

    Time to enjoy the fruits of my labour. I try to have Mondays off and dedicate a big chunk of the day to aquarium maintenance but yesterday was a fail as I ended up going to work. Managed to get off a bit early today to get the job done.
    The reward....

    Day 2 with Sinn 144. I was really concerned that the personalities of this and my OW would be too close, that they'd be the same watch. Fortunately it's looking like there's enough difference between them. 20190730_133741.jpg
