Re: Over 20 Years Since My Last Tattoo

Beautiful work so far! I’m eager to see the finished piece. I have one minor tattoo that barely even qualifies - a line from Anna Karenina that reminds me of my wife. I got it the day after we were married. I’ve been eager for a proper tattoo ever since but haven’t been able to settle on something a...

What red/black version?

Re: C60 Concept

When I saw that there were only nine left and estimated delivery pushed out to 31 March I thought….. They will all go within a day or two, for obvious reasons. Such is life with what turn out to be desirable LE models from many brands. No risk. Nothing to pay until delivery. Plenty of chance to see...

Re: CWL of the day

Back to the wedding gift watch to remind me off my wife today. She went to Cape Cod to see her parents.
