There might be trouble if that one pair of U-cap boots is still in stock if I swing by the store later this week... those look great! (And, Steve,  it was great meeting you last week!)
 I'd e-mail them -- my minuteman says Japan Movemovent -- the other watch says Swiss Movement, maybe that's where the confusion comes from?
 List price was about $180 for the horn one (little better than the website because I was paying in HKD) and the timezone one was listed at ~$300. They gave me a 10% discount for buying both (and a friend bought a purse) at the same time; I forget what the threshold we had to hit to get the discount. It's definitely expensive for a pair of quartz watches, but I was willing to pay the premium for the uniqueness factor. Plus these were my keepsakes from this Hong Kong trip...
And now for something slightly different... I was visiting Hong Kong a few weeks ago and I stumbled upon this little shop called Squarestreet (on, believe it or not, Square Street on Hong Kong island). I spent some time looking around and walked out with two (very cool, IMO) watches. They're both a little off-the-wall:         They're both single-handed watches -- took me a day or two to get used to it, but now I can glance and know the time (within a 5 minute...
Just got my pair of burgundy and black suede double monks... maybe the flashiest pair of shoes I own now haha. It helps that they were on their winter sale and ended up being under $200 shipped to the US. Only took about a week to the west coast!   Some photos of the new pair with my black adelaides that I got when I visited the store in Paris. Both on the 199 last.  
With Meermin I am comfortably a 9UK (*slightly* loose, but comfortable). With the SL 199 last, I have a pair of 8.5UK. They were tight at first, but have gotten comfortable after a dozen wears or so. I find the the SL shoes to be stiffer, especially at first, which made the first wear or two uncomfortable by the end of the day. At this point, however, they fit well. They still feel tighter than my meermin 9UKs (a boot in Olfe and oxfords in Park).
Can someone talk me out of getting the copper suede buckle boots to match my copper suede adelaides (gmto)? Those adelaides are my favorite pair of shoes I've got right now and the suede is awesome...
I'll be heading to Paris next week and I was planning on visiting the Carmina and Septime Largeur in search of a nice pair of shoes -- is there anywhere else in Paris, in that price range, that I should check out while I'm there?
Maiden voyage of the copper suede gmto!
I just picked up my GMTO copper suede captoes from FedEx!  [[SPOILER]]  Here they are with my other GMTO Meermins: Finally, I think some people had questions about how the new Park last looks compared to the Carmina Simpson last, so here are some side by side photos. I'll try and give some better impressions once I've worn the Meermin's a couple times, but here are a few initial ones: The Park last has a much more "square" toebox than the Simpson, particularly from the...
