Sorry, unclear post...I miss the shit ouf of the '90's Hoyo DC. The one pictured was 07 or 08, I think. They're pretty good, certainly not bad, but if you've tasted the old days, it's hard to not compare. But Epi #2 and DC are great hot summer day cigars, as are modern Quai coronas.'54 from 2010 today.
@Epaulet Maybe I've been spending too much time the in TWAT thread dissecting date windows, but for the Blue Salt Oxford, the outdoors shots look almost like there's some color bloom on the model's left upper chest area. Studio shot looks normal. Crazy?
FWIW, I picked up the black sample from Roman--it's a great carry-on domestically for the short haul flights. Only drawback is that when using the shoulder strap, it tends to not stay upright...goes inverted. They may well have fixed the strap rigging in the production model. If I had paid full price, I'd be picky about that, but as-is got a screaming deal.
60 pages back, working my way through the last six months...don't think I've posted this yet. Heuer Solunagraph, developed for Orvis, retailed in '60's-'70's. Believe this is gen 1, used to time the lunar hours for friskier fish/upland birds, based on Valjoux 21.
