Re: Edinburgh Fringe trip

An interesting hour! The IWC would also be my choice from that lineup. I have realised that I only like gold on smaller watches with leather straps.

Re: Iconostasis - the Watch Wonderwall

Agreed. I see no reason at all why not. Those Casios are rarer these days, but I had about 3 of them in the 80s.

To me, for many years, an icon was a religious image associated with the Eastern Orthodox tradition. The word EIKON means image in Greek, so it’s not hard to see why the word was a...
