Why not post in a thread about tea?
For those that have experience with the Master-Piece "Over" daypack and flaptop pictured below What do you like about it? What would you change, if anything?
I am brewing Sweet Maria's Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Dry Process - Gedeb Asasa this week. I roasted to Full City, slightly darker than usual. I am not sure about the mouth feel I get from dry process.
I love the drop in contributors with sophisticated taste.
Me too. I would purchase if I had some certainty on the dial refinish. I can't find any similar dials.
The pic is actually from an eBay auction for a vintage late '30s watch. My only hesitation is that the dial has been refinished and the seller can't provide details. The seller's response to my inquiry was, "The dealer who supplied this one is beyond repute and we did a lot of checking to make sure everything was right and the dial style is identical to the original design."
I was just about to ask what others think of the DJ as a "dress watch." As I have been looking at chronos, it occurred to me that I don't really have a true dress watch. My 1965 DJ is the closest, but not sure the bracelet works for formal.I do love the Reverso as a dress watch.
Thoughts on the merits / cons of these, which are all surprisingly in my budget. 5513 Rolex Submariner (1.7M Serial #) Omega "Ed White" Speedmaster Heuer Carrera 45
Still looking for a vintage chrono, but a general question about "tool" watches in the meantime. The big two categories that I see are diver or chronographs. I might possibly need to time something (a 3 minute egg say), but I don't anticipate ever needing to descend 660 ft underwater. What is the appeal of the diver watch other than the association with Bond?
