    Nice Tudor!
    The temp was 32deg. F on my drive in this AM, and the sun was already up!
    Starting my second week at the new job...wearing a favorite old familiar:

    Time is Money, except on Dark Side of the Moon

      Love that Brandon. I seem to like Tudors as much as I don't like Rolexes.

      I'm wearing the 40 Years of Diastar extra large LE today.

        When did THAT Tudor happen??? Noice! I went with something considerably more down-market. Much like the wearer...

          That's a cool red strap Erik! Original or aftermarket?

              Kurt, I was either unaware or had forgotten you had that Graham.
              Wicked cool.

                  Thanks Man. My son showed up Sunday morning carrying my grandson Hunter in one arm and a
                  box I recognized in the other. A little over 5 years ago when he got out of graduate school I
                  let him go through my mechanical collection (before the purge) and take what he wanted... (and boy
                  did he !)

                  Well Sunday, as he handed me the baby he said, "Dad, why don't you take these back. All I wear is my
                  AP Offshore and the Sinn Chronograph and you'll probably wear them more than I will." He bought both the
                  AP and the Sinn himself and I think he feels good about wearing those. He did keep the Ebel Tarawa I gave
                  him and said he wears that at least once a week.

                  I had kept 3 or 4 mechanicals and they sit quietly at the back of the safe but now their wayward siblings
                  have returned. Kind of a cool surprise.

                    Very cool story!
                    Sounds like you have a shoebox full of cool mechanical timepieces you can still go to in time of need
                    (and that Omega is saweeet!!!)

                      I bet it was fun seeing some of those "old friends" again. That's a great story!

                        It is and I had forgotten just how sweet.

                        Thanks Sparky !

                          It really was. Now I have to convert a 1 year old to this insanity ! I was a little
                          TOO successful with his father.

                            My daughter is now 21 months old and one of her first words was "watch." I had not even tried to teach her the word, but she had always grabbed whatever watch I was wearing. I like to think that she is a watch lover of her own accord.

                              Yes, but is it "real" ... ?
