What kind of car was it?
2015 Goals Get rid of the excess weight so my bespoke suits fit again. Then get the following: 1. 10 bespoke ties from Sam Hober 2. 10 new dress shirts from Ascot Chang 3. 2 new bespoke suits from Despos 4. 2 new bespoke sport coats from Despos 5. 2 new odd trousers from Despos 6.

Picked up a Rolex Explorer II (white dial) and a Casio G Shock today. My collection is coming along nicely now considering the only watch I owned a week ago was a Seiko SARB031. Right now I've got the three mentioned above and a JLC Master Control Chronograph. I want to get a vintage Omega as a more formal watch now. Once I find that I should have a nice collection that will get me through almost any situation. On another note do you guys like watch winders? I'm...
