Sunday Newbies 28th Nov

Staying EB but a bit more sheen, if not shine, for Sunday!


Oops better turn the reflector bezel round ...  It doesn't click, BTW, but it seems to stay put.


Gently distressed Horween leather, which I fitted the Elliot Brown buckle to ...


So threaded bars everywhere and not a spring in sight.


Sits very nicely for a 44mm case, and I have sent off for a strap bar upgrade kit, which has socketed ends rather than slots, so no sharp tools required for a strap change.

Today is the first Sunday in Advent.

As some may have gathered, the Mem'sahib and I lived in Germany from 1976 to 1978, and again from 1992 to 1998. We picked quite an affection for some of the traditions practised there  --  especially those related to Advent. (If you have never drunk Feuerzangenbowle at an open air Christmas market in a temperature of minus several, I recommend it  --  just don't try to drive afterwards).

Two Advent traditions which we have upheld for over forty years are:

The manufacture of an "Adventskranz" (one candle is lit on the first Sunday, etc.) . . . .


and the display of a "Herrnhuter" paper star of Bethlehem . . . .


Clearly, whilst making these trinkets one is required to wear a "tool" watch . . . .
