    From your week I was very tempted to pick the Omega but I eventually chose the watch that I met only last year.
    Thanks, Scott. I haven't had many Rado-wearing days recently (a sad commentary on my habits, perhaps) so I've been hesitant to clog up the lovely Friday gallery with the same old "I've worn an RGM all week again" post!

    Every Friday, though, I think "I need to break the 56-H out of jail for a weekend of revelry." I'll make it happen soon!
    Sorry we were unable to catch up in Blighty last month. I missed JohnPat's arrival by a day or so also but, luckily, I was able to post something interesting to him which had been delivered to me months ago in the USA. Perhaps he will share it...he might have worn it this week.

      Winter has finally arrived here in the UK, although we seemed to have missed the worst of the first flurry here in the Midlands.
      These are the watches that I wore this week.
      Diastar 1/E chronometer on Monday.

        Tough choice this week Scott It could be the 303, it could be the 1/E but I'll have to go with the Spacewing.

          I kinda think you can post that TZLE as often as you want.

            A great week Henry, with so many potential winners but I'll choose the prettiest one.

              Thanks mate, the Frigate has become a favourite, it's one of the earliest pieces I restored, made up of the best of 2 watches. This week you've made it difficult once again, in the end it came down to the Spacewing or the Lapis 303, this week I'm picking the 303 and looking forward to seeing your latest Lapis purchase soon. If it's anywhere near as good as this 303 it'll be a stunner.

                That's a lovely piece Jose, congratulations.

                    Thanks Henry, Cathy's making progress, but we've realised that this will be a marathon, not a sprint, so we'll be heading down to the hospital twice a week until all the dressings finally come off. As long as we get a good result in the end, it will have been worth it.

                    Great photos this week Henry, and you always post great photos but this week's outstanding. There's a number of my favourites in your collection this week. I'm choosing your DS 40, cause I love the watch and this photo of it.

                      I dug into storage and pulled this one out after reading about some of the new Omega offerings for 2019:



                      Yesterday I didn't even bother with a watch, because I was so bundled up against cold temperatures that my wrist was unlikely to be found under all the layers.


                      Hi Brad, great to see your post this week. I know it's sacrilege not to pick the RGM but I've become a bit of a dive watch fan of late, so I'm picking your Omega. I really love the way that the bezel reflects the shape of the case, it's a very elegant dive watch. Stay warm!

                          I know what you mean...I've begun to covet the new CCs myself, but having the two divers above, I doubt I'll act on the impulses!

                            WOW, those rea some serious heavy-hitters, Scott.
                            Hard to pick a favorite...I may have to go with the second Balboa. Very nice and stealthy!

                            I was lucky to experience some snow in the Peak District a couple weeks back...quite an idyllic scene.

                              Glad to hear your wife continues to improve, even if it is going to be a long haul. Forward progress is good.

                              Regarding my photos, thank you Tim. I think I have started to photograph more like I paint and see rather than simply shooting things as they are.
