Re: New Watch Syndrome, or the Honeymoon Period

Steve, Gary, thank you both for giving the new watch a new nickname.

"The Hobbit Watch."

What say you, gentlemen?

Re: New Watch Syndrome, or the Honeymoon Period

:lol: All of the above described behaviors have been mine at various times, for various watches. I have to confess that I may have actually stumbled into what could possibly be my "one watch," the one which, barring unforeseen circumstances, I could stay with forever. I have worn it almost constantl...

Re: The Bargain Hunters Thread

Island Watch in USA has a new Marathon auto. "Arctic" dial, 36mm, SW200, IIRC 30 Bar WR.
$680 US.

I'm sorely tempted.

Re: Jokes to cheer us up

I read once that it is the law in Kentucky, that you have to take a bath once a year.

Thank God, I don't live in Kentucky...Make of that what you will...:)

Something to lighten the mood a bit... Heard a Dr. on TV saying in this time of Coronavirus staying at home we should focus on inner peace. To achieve this we should always finish things we start and we all could use more calm in our lives. I looked through my house to find things i'd started and h...

You don't have to like the direction CW is taking, but don't hide behind a BS notion that it's because "Chris has left the building".

Re: It's a list in a magazine so it must have credibility

Went through the whole list. Omega 321, The Bell & Ross ones, the Tudor, and the William Wood are all good. I do like the Cartier, and the BP, too.

Re: A little British-American Humour

The irony of the US helping finish wars when all they do today is start them and run away In its heyday, the British Empire held sway over all of the Middle East and Southwest Asia. Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Afghanistan were all part of that. I acknowledge that nothing lasts forever, least of all the...

Re: A little British-American Humour

Paul, you've hit some of my countrymen dead straight on. Hell is where one goes to suffer, right? We won't say anything about old British drinking songs, but the noteworthy dates are correct, at least as I remember them being taught in my youth. Sad that.

Re: A little British-American Humour

:silent: It is amazing how many things are forgotten as time goes by. Up until the influx of non-english speaking immigrants in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, American cuisine was largely derived from that of England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Germany. Native American cooking...

Re: Getting old and liking gold....

Great looking watch, a Hamilton (for which I admit to having a liking for anyway, owning several myself), and a 7750 to boot. definitely worth keeping over any of the current crop, in my opinion. Pleased for you, sir.

Re: The Pocket Watch Gallery

I think your man is the same fella that did the 4992B in the article I referred to. "HandyDan" is his moniker. Very impressive skill set for Hamiltons.

Good luck with the hunt!
