Meistersinger No. 3... well, it doesn't seem too important to know the time accurately at present

Nice to see you changed the strap, the original Seiko one is pretty awful.  

Pretty awful you say ?

It wasn't that good, IMO:biggrin:

 

Have purposely bought 2 new straps for mine, including this CW (also) light green oak leather...

Blue Monday.
House full of kids off school and Uni and the wife not on shift at the hospital so holed up in my office on the top floor at home listening to the prodigy.

Little did I know when I bought a SARB017, SARB035, SARB033, SARB065 that the Zombie Apocalypse would happen so quickly, and my money would have been better off invested in toilet rolls and hand sanitizer. :biggrin: 

I very nearly bought one, but didn't, and now wish I had, a bit like the red 12 presage I could have bought half price ...  I think the vintage watches I have bought were equally nice, but I don't feel confident with a vintage watch until it has been through the watchmaker, and that is taking a long time these days!

These Seikos are a nice but of retro and of course you don't have to worry about the MOT!

In amongst all the surrounding Lebensangst, I am pleased to note that the magnolia and daffodils seem to be carrying on blithely, and the birds and bees don't give a fig about social isolation  --  makes an oldie feel a little bit better.

there was nothing but the whistling of birds up bryn pydew woods this morning, amazing how much the sound of traffic is noticed by its absence on the road a mile or so away.

its the top of bryn pydew looking out towards penrhyn bay i explored it and found all the footpaths about 12 years ago. Its only a stone throw from home, and plenty of walks and its always quiet up there. Its about a mile from llandudno. They got most of the stone up there to build the hotels in llandudno.

a lot of it reminds me of that film 'the birds'

I don't usually bother changing halfway through the day, but the Casio Edifice I was wearing is a bit loose and needs a link taking out, and I can't be bothered at the moment so it's a switch to this beauty for the rest of today:

20180821_122011

It's one of the few TW Steels in my collection that ISN'T either for sale or sold at the moment :laughing2dw:

No mate, the whole point was I had too many TW Steels in my collection.  I had multiples of the same model in different colours, it was just getting ridiculous.  No plans for more of them, but I have got my eye on another Casio Edifice at the moment... :whistling:
