    Went watch shopping in Nassau Bahamas and Rolex had nothing but jewel encrusted Datejusts, and the saleswoman blames the empty display cases on grey market watch sellers buying them all up and selling them for a profit.

    I asked, how many SS Professional sports watches do you get in and sell each week? And she’s like ”none”. And I’m like “How could grey market sellers and scalpers buy them in order to sell at 2x the price if all of you AD HAVE NONE? I said, if Rolex would fix the shortage it would drive the scalpers out of the market.”

    She had no words. And made me stop taking pictures.

    Other places had all models of Omega except Apollo 8 and 11

    Friday, sat and sun watch on. Love it. Love the dial, love the indicies and the way they float, love the case.

    I really did not expect to like this watch so much. I look forward to the weekends....

    I was in the sub-basement of a courthouse in Los Angeles, wearing a mask and trying not breathe rat-droppings, clearing out old files. So I wore the watch that never dies, a 15-year-old Skyhawk U600 that, when I bought it, Citizen said would live not much more than 10 years. Four crystals later . . .

    I liked it even with the mesh bracelet but the perlon works better.
