Happy Birthday Lindsey.The watch looks even better in your photos than on some of Schofield's website.I can see why you were drawn to the Isotope from the side view.
By the way,is your dog old enough to drink in a pub??Enjoy your liquid breakfast..I'm glad you are keeping Scottish traditions alive.

He's allowed in for soft drinks only. He tasted the margarita keenly then his face went all funny and he looked at me in disdain :lol:

Margarita breakfast is awesome and I think I'll do it again. I find I'm giving way fewer **** now - and life is the better for it. :thumbup:

In the pub where I used to go with my dad and my uncle, the landlord kept a few clean ashtrays behind the bar. They were never put out for smokers, but kept for the customers whose dogs liked a swift half! :cheers:

What a birthday watch! Happy birthday and congrats. I’m REALLY liking it on the pink strap. And the packaging is AMAZING. Thanks for a really good write up. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it over my breakfast. Hope you’re having a good birthday :D

Happy birthday! What a very cool watch! I’m 50 this year also (in May), I know that I’ll be getting a watch for my 50th from my wife, she has told me that, and am very worried about what she might pick. It’s a very personal thing we have in terms of what we like and what we don’t. And if I don’t like what she gets me, I’m stuck with what she’s picked. Much safer to buy it yourself and know that you will love it and love wearing it!

Ooh, it's such a double edged sword! I do agree that watches are so personal they shouldn't be trusted to someone else. But, at the same time, there's no better meaningful watch than a 50th birthday watch from your SO. Wear it even if you don't like it and let it rub away those edges until the precious metal shines through :D

Happy birthday! Congrats on reaching the half century mark and on knowing yourself well enough to pick out the perfect watch for who you have become.
There is certainly an evolution, with many tangents along the way, but at the core, for most of us, there is a basic... style?, certain attributes, design parameters that we gravitate towards. Within your parameters, you have managed a fine diversity, a varied collection, and this latest is another excellent addition. 👍

Happy Birthday young Lindsey, may you enjoy this year, the year after that and the many more years to come.

What amazes me is seeing watches which I know nothing at all about and being delighted by the differences which exist. I'm sure if I saw this watch on a website I'd pass it straight by as "not my kind of thing" and so what truly brings it alive is seeing the watch in the context of someone's story.

The pink fluffy strap is a standout feature - talk about strong personality..... it looks like being fifty suits you?

Oh wait what's this?

Absolutely spot on; grab what you like, watch the rest go merrily by.

Whilst I was pleased to see picture of pooch in pub, I so look forward to seeing this watch where it deserves to be, in outdoor ambient light.

I keep looking at the watch and the more I know it and me are not compatible, the more I appreciate the differences between us, the spaces that exist so that what's right on you can be so different. Yes, good watch, strong style meets strong personality. Excellent!!

Haha! Very true - and I can only hope on the “precious metal” haha

@tikkathree
A long and gracious way of saying you don't like my watch Pete! :lol: :wave:

You gave me so much to think about in what you said that I had to go away for a while! In a nutshell I don't think it matters what you do in life, but it's better to act in a way that connects rather than a way that divides. And that can go for absolutely anything we do including talking about watches. And we can connect over disliking someone's watch as much as with liking. :D

Hmmmm. I think that's maybe all.
I do love being 50 - the first half century has been rocky as **** :lol: :D

Oh no Lyndsey, quite the opposite. I like it for you and other people, I don't think that at the tender age of seventy - can you imagine that far ahead? hahaha - it's a watch I'd choose for mesel'. :wave:

I know pete - no worries. You're a proper watchie who likes watches - for other people or for you. I was glad of your thoughts because often we're scared to disagree with anyone these days. And I think you're right - as little as I know myself this one seems to go with me well :D
