ask them is they "swing" at best, you'll spice up your love life, at worst you'll never have to worry about the need to reciprocate again...or is it the other way around?
man comes home to nagging wife who immediately demands sex by saying "Gimme ten inches and make it hurt!" so hubby bangs her twice and hits her in the head with the television.

Accomodate my tastes through alteration of your behavior or crucify me here, please. Sartorial is a perfectly cromulent word.

I'm not into all the fancy styling of today nor watches with multi functions just simple is fine for me. I guess your wrist is on the smaller side, too, making the watch look big. I know what you mean, though, about the small size. I have a Hamilton from circa 1940, and it is small, but looks even smaller on my big...

Breitling is not in this class which is reserved for VC, PP, AP, Blancpain, and a few others You are? Thanks for the condescension, chief. As I stated, I'm not so sure it was B&M, but the radio piece did catch my attention due to the fact that the watchmaker was...
If you're a serious diver, or have some egotistical need, buy the submariner. If you want a watch that you can pull off casually as well as with a suit, then a mid-size datejust is ok. I happen to love rolex watches, and keep kicking myself for not picking one up every time I did have the spare cash. As soon as i have an exra $7k Canadian, I'm getting a Cellini Danaos.
