‘Contraindicated’, love that word - I haven’t come across it before
No, not a gold dial - just a silvered one reflecting that late afternoon sun
I enjoy wearing mine.

Myth 7: Mechanical is better than quartz
Does your mistrust of quartz make any sense?
The reason why I prefer manual and automatic watches over quartz is …
I don’t know.
No matter how many times I think about this, I cannot come up with a single, genuinely good answer. Do I believe a mass-produced ETA movement has more romance than a Casio? No. And yet I, too, somehow give it more value. So … (insert awkward pause here) … if there were a moral to this column – and by now I suspect we all know there isn’t – it would be that people who are opinionated about watches do not always make sense. And by not always, I mean hardly ever.
Evening with the 'Fab Suisse' before it hits the sales,
Nice Sunday to all!

yard work today, so disposable Citizen
office tomorrow, so Devil Diver and 999B Ball
The Ball will likely end up on an @DaveK lanyard...
only the best after all....
Actually mowing I’m pretty sure last week I had a winter jacket on one day, could have been the week before
I don’t mistrust quartz watches at all. They’re objectively better suited to the task.
It is, for me, having something in my daily life which is not in any way electronic. I’ve been working in IT my entire adult life, and was getting paid for IT work in the 80’s while still in HS. I needed something that wasn’t electronic, and fell in love with mechanical watches.
Not a Devil Diver. Caravelle Set-O-Matic. And he wanted 18 mm lugs. Should have been 19 or even 20.
