This Seiko Spirit is a great watch. After market "beads of rice" bracelets are available to fit. Twotone http://www.pmwf.com/Watches/WATCHSAL...adeinJapan.htm
Since it's a quartz watch, it could be a dying battery. Some quartz movements have a low battery warning feature. When the battery is getting low, the second hand will jump in five second increments rather than every second. I'd try a new battery and see if this fixes the problem -- faster and cheaper than returning it for repair or replacement. Twotone
Let her do it for you.
A small independent jeweler here in Denver can design and make most anything. She made the bezel for this gold stater -- Alexander the Great minted around 89 -- 85 BC. Next project is for her to make a pair of 18k RG cuff links with lapis lazuli inserts. Twotone
Well, the "Full Cleveland" is most appropriate when shopping for large up-scale sedans (S63, 750Li, S8, etc.). If, however, you are looking at something more sporty (Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc.), then I'd suggest showing up wearing a fire resistant race suit (boots and gloves) and Snell SA2005 rated helmet. Just tell them you want to take it to your "banker" for an hour or so to discuss "financing". Twotone
"Full Cleveland" -- powder blue check, plaid or windowpane leisure suit, white patent leather belt and shoes. If you are going to deal with them, might as well dress like them. Twotone
The subject line in your post has three independent topics: 1) suit culture, 2) NYC and 3) the fall of Lehman. I don't see any relationships between the three. Twotone
If it's the perfect suit, then wear it in good health. Keep in mind fit is the most important factor in choosing a suit. I have purchased quite a few HF Collection suits at NM Last Call and Dillards close out sales in the $250 - $350 range. I was just lucky to find them in my hard-to-find 39R size. As the saying goes, "if it fits, wear it". Twotone
I have yet to find a decent brick-and-mortar watch strap store anywhere. My favorite on-line retailers for watch straps and deployants include the following: http://www.thewatchprince.com/ http://www.banda.com/ http://fandebnb.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc http://www.fredawatchstraps.com I'm not associated with any of the above retailers other than being a satisfied customer. Hope this helps. Twotone
Browsing through September issues of GQ, Esquire, Men's Vogue, etc. it looks like charcoal gray is the "in color" this fall. Most labels have suits, sport coats, overcoats, pea coats, etc. in one or two shades of gray. It's one of my favorite colors, and to me, a notch over navy blue for its versatility. Any one else moving to gray this fall? What's your favorite shade of gray? Thanks in advance, Twotone
