What do you gentlemen think of this watch? A 1990's Audemars Piguet GMT w/ Power Reserve and Date Indicator. I enjoy this classic design. My only condern is with Audemars... the brand has edged outside the of the mainstream lately. However, but $11,000 I think it could be a beautiful addition and a great watch for travel.

This Sunday's Shoe Shine Sunday started a little bit late for me... sorry. But, nevertheless, I am taking a little bit of time to give my shoes some love.

Water breaks down the oils and waxes in the leather, leaving it dry. If the leather is flexed repeatedly while it is dry, the leather can crack. It is essential to...
