Re: CWL of the day

Post by jkbarnes »

Back to the wedding gift watch to remind me off my wife today. She went to Cape Cod to see her parents. My daughter is in Asheville, NC, with her girlfriend’s family, so it’s just my parents, my son, and me for Thanksgiving today - and we’re going out for dinner. Not my preference for the holiday, but you make do.

From my 20 years living in East London as a young lad I wish I had a £1 for every time I walked past or was on a bus going past Christ Church. I always knew the churchyard of Christ Church as being the "Itchycoo Park" sung about by The Small Faces due to the homeless people that lived in it. However there are a few different ideas of the actual location of Itchycoo Park being in Spitalfields or Cambridge or Ilford.

The area has been gentrified a lot since my younger days. A colourful watch for what looked a nice day in City of London :thumbup:

It's a stunning photo of a brilliant watch. I took mine off today for the first time inb2 weeks to wear the Yellow 316 LE. It's not often I wear the same watch for so long x

That's a great capture, Steve. I really like the thinner bezel on these compared to the Explorer II's. :D

^^^ Cheers, Des. I’m not really a fan of wide bezels; whenever I see a dive watch my eye is always drawn to the bezel. this one seems to stay unobtrusively out of sight until you need it. I suspect that being the same colour as the case also helps.

I chose something capable of dealing with the awful weather today. Despite not intending to leave the house!

Surprised you didn’t wear the C60 Concept Guy?

Looking at the pics of the City that you posted in the walker’s thread, my initial reaction was…

I am glad that I no longer work up there. I much prefer the slower pace of numerous holidays in the hills or on the coast. :)

Dartmouth for me this morning.

@nbg - I was intending to wear my Concept yesterday Neil, but realised the night before I hadn't added it to my Insurance Policy yet. :oops: :oops:

Meanwhile in the safety of my garden.

Switched to an old friend, which arrived yesterday from a forum legend in part trade for one of my CWs, for this afternoon.

I owned one of these for several years back in 2014-17 and the opportunity presented itself to get reacquainted.

C11 Makaira Elite COSC LE.
