Yes indeed...I visited my friend at a certain boutique with the declared intention of trying on the silliest and most expensive things possible.  It's always quiet in there so it's a game he's happy to play.  Anyway, I'll post more nonsense later.  Though I have to say, despite being far from my taste, both of those alien spacecraft are absolutely amazing to wear: extraordinary to look at and fiddle with, but also incredibly comfortable and wearable.  Design is a matter of taste for all of us, but in terms of quality and integrity, they are a amazing.  I will explain more later...

So I hear.  And I'm going to spend a day in shoe shops.  We all have our priorities!

You have my sympathy.  Luckily my beloved loves shoes plenty, so as long as I indulge her too, she doesn't seem to mind!

^^ make sure you make time for the Turkish baths. Rudas if you want to go old-skool.

+1. Even in winter and after dark, it's rather nice to grap a cold, local beer in one of the outside thermal baths, like this one:

Oh, and find an old bar and get an Absinthe. You might even try it served the Neue Bohemian way, where you (in contrast to the classic French way and frowned upon by some traditionalists) light the Absinthe soaked sugar cube on the Absinthe spoon on fire, before you douse it with water.

Last guy I saw order Absinthe in polite company was an utter mess by the end of the night. But he sure had a blast.

Sticking with this one today...

Absinthe is the road to ruin.

Rudas bad is like having a bath in a cathedral.

Edit: the Tokaji is excellent though, and some of the reds are surprisingly drinkable.

What about workout watches? I know this thread is mostly reserved to high priced mechanical timepieces, but what do you guys wear when working out/jogging/cycling?

 

I'm looking for something that's pretty water/humidity proof (I tend to sweat a lot when exercising, even forearms/wrists), and I could benefit from a heart rate monitor. I don't really care for the GPS/satellite ability as I'd like to keep the price relatively low. 

 

Is there any other choice available apart from Casio/G-Shock and some Timex Ironman? 

 

Thanks!

Everything I wear is for running, and they all have GPS/satelite is them now. I've worn a lot of Garmin (the Nike and Tom Toms don't measure up), which has become more sweat and water resistant through their iterations. I have destroyed a few with my own sweat while training for fall marathons (August Tempos and Long Runs blow). A bunch of friends wear the Timex Ironman Sleek and like it. There are plenty of watches that are just heart rate focus, it just depends on your needs. Garmin products have gotten pretty good through the years, and I can personally rec them now where I couldn't before in terms of handling sweat (I sweat more than anyone I've ever met).

 

I guess what functions do you need, and what's the budget?
