  9. Morning, This Italian-made Aretta, dating from the ‘60s, running on a French-made 17j Lorsa 238A and beautifully complemented by a really classy strap. Today’s effort was made by Francesco Marinsek of Trieste (Est. 1954) about whom I never found very much, other than a report of the Italian tax authorities coming a-knocking on Francesco’s door in 1989. Outcome unknown, but probably just one of these “misunderstandings” which occur from time to time. Regards.

  11. Another Seiko, 40 yrs since I spotted this, a stone's throw from the beach we're off to today. It was on leather back then, expecting an easy life as a dress watch, but it was my daily and is well worn. OK, badly worn!

  28. My grandfather had huge wrists. He never had trouble with small watches in the 1960s for the simple reason that they were what was available to the average person. I think it would’ve taken a brave person to tell him he was wearing a girl’s watch, even in his 70s

  36. I’m doing a little experiment. When I bought my MeisterSinger a year ago, it was a little retirement present to self and was principally intended for those lazy beach holidays that I love so much. Well the retirement didn’t quite happen (not completely at any rate) and the holidays certainly didn’t happen! I enjoyed wearing this watch over the summer last year but became increasingly disenchanted with it during the autumn and winter. I will freely admit that I wasn’t in a very good place, and the inability to see time moving was contributing to what I think was a genuine depression. Actually, I now think that it was more a case of resentment that I couldn’t do the things I wanted to do, so took my feelings out on an inanimate object with which I was associating those activities. Well, it’s feeling more like summer now, I had my second jab this morning and I’m really hoping that by the end of the summer or beginning of September I can get onto a Greek beach for a couple of weeks and do nothing. So, we have a half term break and yesterday morning I put the MeisterSinger on. I have been wearing it a lot more recently, but I thought to myself that this would be a good time, with some lovely weather forecast, to give it what I might term a holiday try out. I have locked all my other watches away and for the next 10 days (beginning yesterday) I intend to wear just this one. I shall treat it exactly as I would on a holiday. I also have my beautiful Ulysse Nardin, which I bore you all to tears with, because I can’t stop wearing it, photographing it and talking about it! The UN is intended to be the serious travel watch that I hope to wear for my research trips and other things that don’t involve beaches (such as Christmas in Cyprus!) The MS is very much the laid-back holiday watch, or at least that is the intention. I really don’t need GMT for Greece, fun as it is. Watch this space.

  37. Sorry, I posted this watch before and said it was Russian and it is not the watch is from Minsk in Belarus. Belerus has not been part of Russia since the 90's. Anyway its on a Nato from its default supplied leather, does it work you think?

  38. I don’t think so. The UN will be perfect for my Christmas trip to Cyprus or my intended rail trip around Spain in pursuit of information for one of my books, but I never saw it as the perfect companion for a beach holiday. I’m a great advocate of what I call “-ISH time” on these holidays. The Italian phrase dolce far niente springs to mind. I’ve done singles holidays to small hotels in the Mediterranean for quite a few years now, and the following description (written for CWF last year) describes a typical day on an AVO holiday. Sunrise, or thereabouts. Somewhere around the Mediterranean, or maybe the Canary Islands, or somewhere similar. Having woken naturally you decide that it’s about time to get up, probably. Make a coffee, drink it on the balcony in your bathrobe, shower and mosey on down to breakfast at some point. After a leisurely breakfast you decide it’s quite likely time for a walk. Maybe meet up with a couple of fellow travellers in the lobby (about 10 o’clock, okay?), stroll along beside the sea, and eventually find a nice little café where you can spend an hour (give or take) people-watching, chatting or perusing a book while sipping a couple of coffees. Amble on a bit. Maybe look at a couple of shops, visit something interesting or just sit and look at the sea for half an hour or so. Time for lunch? Maybe. Not too hungry but perhaps a small beer (or a large one) with a sandwich or a few sardines. Meander back to hotel. About time for a siesta? Why not? Read a book and doze somewhere shady...it’s now in the region of mid-afternoon, probably time for a couple of hours on the sun lounger with a few refreshing dips in the pool. The sun is getting lower, arguably around time to shower, get ready and saunter down some time between 7 o’clock and 7:30 for a G&T with fellow-guests. Dinner? About 8 o’clock. Don’t worry, they’ll call us. Lovely food and wine and, goodness me it’s nearly 10 o’clock or thereabouts. Drift out for a couple of nightcaps, or nurse a brandy in the hotel bar, then it’s off to bed at some point and do it all again tomorrow! And no, I don’t get bored. I have a very high boredom threshold. Allied to the fact that I’m chronically lazy. this type of trip is exactly what the MeisterSinger was bought for. So 10 days at home with the lovely weather forecast and no need to worry about being in a particular place at a particular time, should be an excellent proving ground.

  39. And they decided to go with the design despite the obvious Covid19 related change of plan Not the date, moving to 2021, but the flags are to represent the 12 countries hosting the games. Ireland won't allow the football games to happen there, but that leaves 11 flags and there are 12 hours. I'd imagine the footballer willing to waste £5k on this watch won't notice / care
