Wednesday Morning 2nd June... WRUW today


Recommended Posts

Starting the day with Larsson and Jennings (which still sounds like a form of solicitors, but I do love this little goofball)

Looks huge in that picture, it is not as big as the angle suggests.

Now here's a thing, the quartz version of this carries the 'crow's foot' or broad arrow denoting that it is designed to military spec and, as I understand it, the Holton Professional has also been issued as a service timepiece.

This is the Seiko NH35A powered version.

But that is not the interesting thing, the interesting thing is that yesterday I was able to visit the oldest military issued time-keeping device in the world.

And if you don't believe me, check out the broad arrow carved into the heel stone bottom right, 6500 years ago.

This Wenger Wenging quietly away to itself on wrist this morning:

I've liked the look of a few Wenger's, but as a Spurs fan could never force myself to buy them. :laughing2dw:
