In praise of older women*

Post by tikkathree » Thu Aug 29, 2019 4:52 pm

I'm not a C60 Mk3 person and I'm not a C65 person.

I'm hugely fond of my 7750-driven Big Blue C60 chronograph and today I've provided him with an older woman as a companion piece.

No real logic, just an impulse with right price and right time.

*In praise of older women was the title of a book I read oh, 50 something years ago.Image

I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it! White C60 Mk2, Black C60 Mk2 GMT and the big blue beast!

And why not indeed? She is rather lovely. Congratulations, Pete.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

Clickbait I tell you!

I thought we were going to discuss Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Eva Marie Saint, Raquel Welch and other such lovely ladies but it’s just a blooming C600 IPB, ok it’s rather nice actually.

Who said Liz Hurley, older woman, she’s probably younger than half the forum :lol:

And Marilyn was never old. She died age 36. As did Diana. A fact that did not escape Elton.

There's no answer to that Steve.

I've owned this strap unused for a long time. Every dog has their day. This suggests I've now got an older woman with a dog. Ding dong
