  6. This is the watch I bought when I last went shopping for a watch in the way a normal person goes shopping for a watch. OK, so I'm late fifties and most of the damage was done falling off my skateboard, so not quite normal. But I did buy the right watch!

  12. Over to the Tag for today Taking in the mountainous Fens landscape Random thought of the day: as the passing of Tim increases the period of my life I have spent as the father of teenage girls, the more I look back on that teenage boy I once was and wonder why on earth I was so interested in them. Honestly, how we didn't all turn out gay is completely beyond me, they are mean, lazy, filthy creatures.

  25. If I ever had to make an appointment with a boutique to buy a watch.. I would realise that I had lost all contact with reality and seriously need a slap from all my friends and family, individually, in a que, with random strangers able to join in if they were curious.

  26. This, modern take on the "asymmetric" dial was part of the metamorphosis of the town of Glashütte from mass producer to quality manufacturer following the reunification of Germany in the 1990s. (If you are interested, I wrote a little piece on Glashütte here.) The newly founded firms (Nomos and A Lange & Söhne were the first) looked for ways to differentiate themselves from the Swiss whilst the old East German state cooperative of GUB attempted to reinvent itself as Glashütte Original. I think the asymmetric idea came from Lange -- though it is difficult to tell as ALS and GO are immediately next to each other and "cross-fertilization" of ideas is inevitable. In any case, the first to market was the "Lange 1" -- a beautiful, if ascetic, watch which featured the "big date". It was a big hit, notwithstanding the eye-watering price. Soon after, GO released their own asymmetric watch, the PanoReserve . . . . . Like the Lange, it was a manual wind piece with power reserve and "big date". The biggest differences (apart from the visual) were that the GO was offered in stainless steel, and that the two digits of the "big date" were coplanar (eradicating the need for the bar between the digits). Another major difference was that the steel version was offered at a price only a quarter of that of the Lange (though it must be admitted that the quality and fineness of the hand engraving on the Lange are a cut above). GO also introduced an automatic version of the line -- the PanoMatic Lunar. I blame the Lange 1 completely for my obsession with watches, but that is a "whole nother story". .

  34. Yeah, tell 'em to stick it up their collective bottoms. Joking aside, I'll not be buying one (I cannot clarify that your date alignment issue is the overriding reason for my non-purchase).

  36. I agree. For most people it is just a "themed" watch -- and IMHO it's not even a pretty one. Reaches for flak jacket and tin hat

  37. Funny thing is, my client is as down to earth as you can imagine. She looks a bit posh and can probably talk the talk when required, but at nearly 70 she'd not have a problem drinking a pint or shy away from an arm wrestle. She does laser skin treatments, and works almost exclusively for members of the Royal family, all at the Queens recommendation. Her sales ledger is quite something. You misunderstand my intent, I'm certainly not suggesting we have a whip round to try and ease the suffering of our Lords and Masters. I've always said, if you are in the hospital with a broken leg, you're still allowed to feel you've had a shitty day when they wheel a fella into the next bed with two broken legs. An it doesn't really matter what colour your blood might be, a broken leg will still pretty much feel the same. I'd rather have servants and no money worries whilst I recover than not, but given the choice I'd still pick not breaking my damn leg!

  38. Another from the same genre would be this, which I have looked at a few times and despite my previous MT experience (which was not good) I am still keen on trying. https://www.thetimebum.com/2021/05/mathey-tissot-mt369-aisa-mechanical-watches-group-exclusive.html https://amwg.myshopify.com/products/pre-order-mathey-tissot-mt369-amwg-exclusive-2nd-edition
