Thanks Hayward, my Dad got me that for my birthday or some other occasion years ago (he frequently came back from trips with knives). 

 

BTW, those are some nice knives you have with what appear to be Damascus steel blades?  Some how I've accumulated a bunch of knives over the years but nothing too fancy.  I think my nicest knife is a simple folding lock blade from Bill King that again my Dad gave me.

Is no frills offloading some of his collection? Or is this just an opportunity for him to get more?

"Join us in the New York galleries from 7 - 9 June for this exhibition offering a remarkable selection of wristwatches by Patek Phillip from a visionary private collection, featuring a ground-breaking group of pieces commissioned in titanium. Leading the group is a Patek Philippe Ref. 5001 in Titanium, a magnificent, unique and previously unknown double dialed wristwatch with twelve complications estimated for $1-1.5 million"

Very nice watch and accessories.  I don't have any pocket knives from Laguiole, but we have steak knives from them.

Thank you, Dino. If you find yourself in France you can pick up one of those pocket knives for a very reasonable price at one of those little knife shops that all small French towns seem to have. I bought mine on a whim with absolutely no idea what use I would have for it, just because the wood it is made from is so nice and tactile.

Just a few pens, not many. Mostly Mont Blanc and a couple of Watermans.

Hahaha I've seen this stuff in person! The titanium pieces are unique, and I can only wonder what conversations needed to happen with the Stern family before these unique pieces were made. And now they are being sold...

But I kind of like my precious metals better.

(Cheaper than $1-$1.5 million too)

Thanks Dachshund.  That would be a nice little souvenir from a trip to France, so I will keep that in mind.  Its been many years since Mrs. Dino and I have been to France, but we hope to go again at some point.

Went to the place where my sister work cause she told me there where some watches with 50% discount. Huge mistake! biggrin.gif

Bought one for my mom. It's ready nice and automatic.



And one for me. I wanted something in bracelet. Also the guy from Hamilton told me that he will keep me updated to see if in December he can get me the Hamilton Regulator with a 60% discount. biggrin.gif





This will go well with the spitfire cufflinks. biggrin.gif

What do you think?

oh man that's rough. I would expect better from a company like Hamilton. Maybe you recieved a defective model? Even though the Khaki isn't a diving watch it seems like it should be able to take a bit of casual swimming.

I was told by a couple of my watch-collecting-friends that they are not "water proof" but can handle mild submersion in water.  The case is on there pretty good.

 

I mean...I wouldn't go swimming with any of my watches anyway.

post #32353 of 48312

Maybe, but isn't the Khaki supposed to be 100m (10atm) water resistant?  I mean, we know that that isn't to be taken literally, but it should suffice for splashing about in the pool, shouldn't it?

post #32354 of 48312
100m should be good for swimming, water sports and snorkeling. My guess is that it wasn't properly sealed.

That big one officially crosses from dagger to short sword territory.
