Oh, the pain!

Post by Amor Vincit Omnia » Fri Jan 31, 2020 7:12 pm

Received the Black Bough fortnightly email this afternoon.

Saw an 18ct Cartier Santos from 1974.

£1995 :megaeek:

Picked up my jaw from the floor and wired it back.

Then realised...it was a women's size.

What was it Muttley used to say?

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.
