    It was 10 years ago today that I acquired my POLM LE!

    I remember it well because it was the beginning of the big snow storm in the Chicago area that resulted in the pretty famous cars abandoned on Lake Shore Drive mess.

    Luckily I wasn't in that part of it. I was in the suburbs running out to my local FedEx office to retrieve the watch. The heavy snow had started, but I got to FedEx without too much delay, maybe 20 minutes. Luckily they were still open and I got the package. The return home was where it got ugly. Over an hour and a half to do just a few miles. But I didn't care! I was enjoying the feeling of a shiny new watch on my wrist...a feeling I'm sure you all can relate to...YaY!

    By the way, guess what today's weather is like? Behind the table is a full length lawn chair!

    I know how everybody here loves those “is it safe to wear my exotic vintage and very expensive dive watch in the hot shower” questions.

    i thought of that very question not half an hour ago as I was washing the floors around the toilet and noticed the sopping wet chronograph on my wrist, covered in filthy foaming detergent filled water...

    then I remembered, its a late model Bulova marine star...

    yeah its stupid to do it but thats why I have modern watches, to wear when there’s risk of forgetting its there and doing something dopey to it.

    it’ll be fine.




    I hope.
