Sadly, you're right. I won't be getting much hugs and kisses from minute repeaters though. But then again minute repeaters also won't steal my life, rip my heart out from my chest and f*ng own it. Damn trade-offs...
Thanks! We shall see - my girls are growing up to be "real enthusiasts." They still have the "watches" they assembled at the Vacheron children's watchmaking workshop several weeks ago and enjoy bugging each other about the "complications." Hahah!Congratulations on getting your baby home. Are you happy with the service you had her go through?
Looks great! And what is this about "old men needing to be looked after!" Heh heh.Attending my three year old's "preschool recognition ceremonies" later this morning. Wearing the piece she will likely inherit - "if all goes according to The Plan." Ahaha!
The Dunhill/Namiki collabs before World War II forced them to sever the relationship have some wonderful examples. Sadly, I fear I like to actually write with these things a bit much, so I'm always fearful that some of the older nibs won't stand up to the daily grind. Some of the modern examples I have always go through John Mottishaw at Classic Fountain Pens for a little "nib optimization" just to make sure it writes super smoothly.
