Re: My Latest - 1815 Annual Calendar

Wonderful watch!

The sentiments you describe reflect some of my own thinking, though I haven’t (yet?) reached the
dizzying heights of the 1815.

Best wishes to you and your wife-to-be on the upcoming wedding.

Increasingly, I think a sail cloth strap is an essential accessory for almost any watch. It looks great with your Speedy. Thanks. I agree, it is extremely versatile. ...

Re: If not watches, what would your weakness be?

Coffee table books are good too, although I'm not so big on poetry. Des :D Poetry might be an acquired taste, Des, but I firmly believe it is for everyone. It just needs to be given a chance. :) I agree. If you check the ‘what are you reading thread’ you’ll see I posted today. The subject was long ...

Re: If not watches, what would your weakness be?

My other point is not really a question. I’ve always enjoyed taking photographs, and appreciate a nice camera. I like listening to music on a decent system. I suppose I even like driving or being driven in a nice car. But as soon as anyone starts to get deep and technical about any of these things,...

Re: If not watches, what would your weakness be?

I would probably collect modern design classics. Furniture, lamps, objects. Also modern art. And books, new and old. Poetry, classic travel books and gorgeous coffe table books.

Re: I seem to have acquired another traveller’s watch!

A minor classic, the Glycine Airman. I think it’s an interesting, and obviously less costly, alternative to a Rolex GMT. Enjoy!

It’ll be interesting to see where this journey takes you, Steve.

Re: Incoming - ‘Exit Watch’ is here!

Wow, that look stunning on your wrist Lindsey! Congrats! Ebel is a (the only?) brand that has almost organic lines in their designs. Very distinct and cool. And the big date is the cherry on top.

Re: The "what watch are you day dreaming about now" thread

Talk about impossible dream! Seriously out of reach. However, this watch is so darned poetic. The colours, the textures, the different sub-dials - simply marvelous. A wonder of a watch. https://storage.googleapis.com/pubzapuscentral/watchprosite/jlc/123/raw/jlc_6988321.jpg Master Grande Tradition Gy...
