Yes, several of them actually.

He was the best 20th century bowmaker, and this is one of the rarest examples of his work.

I am really excited about this one... waiting to get it in. Shturmanskie with the Soviet air-force issued 31659 movement. Thankfully it is not one of the watches that pull exhorbitant prices on eBay (unfortunately, like the Strela ).
May not be a Patek or something but I have a thing for pilot's watches.
Funnily enough it has the civilian-issue case but that is easy remedied.

that one's got lots of, er, character. is it a fixer-upper, or are you going for the wabi-sabi aesthetic?

i've always thought the grey face on that one was graphically nice.

wear is good. Anyway, will be swapping the movement in to a correct, non-civilian case so it does not really matter.

Just picked up one of these (Sony DSC-T30):



It's not going to be perfect, but it should be a huge step up from my current digital camera.

I just started golfing and just bought my first golf club, for $20 at the nearest pawn shop

Now if only I could learn to drive to be able to use it right.

Two pens: one Sensa with a badass gel grip that's great for long periods of writing and one Parker that has a great feel against paper. The former has Noodler's Blue Black and the latter has Noodler's Zhivago, an incredibly deep green-black.

Sensa; mine is silver not black:


Parker:


Thanks to Nantucket Red for his help on choosing these.

I am searching for another donor to give its case - there was one that looked good on eBay that was suppossedly "broken" but the seller's price was unrealistic.

although it's become more of a 'back-room' deal in san francisco in recent years. the clash of tradition and political correctness, etc.
