Re: New pinion

Watch size, eh! Everyone has such different tastes. I guess it’s just a matter of pinion… 😉

Re: The Non-Curmudgeons Corner

We have a quite spectacular cathedral where I live in Killarney, Co Kerry. It was designed by Augustus Pugin no less. It was consecrated in the mid 19th C, with work halting at the time of ‘the great famine’. I must do a similar post sometime.

Re: What book are you reading

Just finished this. It’s not about a prolific dope smoker, for the record. Totally awesome; quite the masterpiece of writing. Think this could seriously appeal to @avo and @jkbarnes.

Re: Stefs SOTC may 22

I always admire your photos of both the Super Compressor and EP. That you speak so fondly of the SC in the company of the EP and IWC speaks volumes. It must be a damn fine watch. I'm curious, what do you think of the newer iteration with just the twin flags at 12? Lovely watches, thanks for sharing....

Re: Non CW of the Day

Thought I’d try my Meiko (thanks for the name, Des!) on the #Tide strap I got for my C65 AMGT LE. I have to admit, I’ve hardly worn this strap. After seeing it on the Meiko, I think it will get worn a lot more now. I have to say I like that watch, Andrew. It looks great on the #Tide strap, too. I’m...

Re: Postale watch straps

I meant to post this printed card comp slip that came with the strap. Very cool I thought. I love these small, artisan-type touches.

Re: New pinion

That looks interesting. Like the idea of the guilloché dial detail and the Rolex-style chapter ring. Possibly a little small for my tastes, too.

Re: Have a laugh with me, not at me...

Well, given the phrasing above the photo, was I the only one that spent ten minutes looking for a small dent or ding on the bezel or dial? :lol: :lol: It's not a weakness to have a health issue, more blxxdy bad luck.

Re: First, last, and only modded watch.

I enjoyed your description of your ever burgeoning frustrations, I have a feeling that would be me too. I can't help wondering if Paul Weller of 'The Jam' and 'Style Council' fame wouldn't be excellent at watch enhancement; he's often referred to as the 'modfather'. Like the watch btw, very stealthy...
