So that it ain't completely off topic, watch in the pic above is PP 3970J and, though you can't see it, was wearing Exp I 114270 in the pic at the bottom.

Not completely frillyvolous here; was on vacation in late August and apparently incurred some strange form of sun damage on my face. A somewhat shameful thing since I grew up baking in the sun.  But maybe it is an age thing, who knows.  Doctor ruled out lupus but advised hats.  Hats, I said.  Okay then, hats.

Although maybe the straw hat with the wider brim is really more what he meant versus the stingy brim felt fedora... biggrin.gif

Not quite sporting a cowboy hat yet but we will see.  icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif
Is that Seward Park on the LES?

Nope, but close enough: Columbus Park in Chinatown.

Today, an early morning flight to Cleveland, running on two hours of sleep. Aubergine Corthays and Patek 3970P keeping me company. The eggplant is really very subtle, passes as black at first glance.

Thanks, Roger. Ya know, your post in the EG thread about your Galways maiden voyage was so awesome that I was sorely tempted to get a similar pair myself, especially since Leffot here in NYC just sent out an email yesterday announcing a restock of the exact same make/classic color combo. I have the Galways in navy and midnight suede but there is something about the classic pair you have. Still loving them?

I love them big time - and like you, would love to add a second pair - very tempted by the blue and also the bronze.

Very nice. Feeling somewhat crappy this morning as I am running on a few nights of 4 hours of sleep each, but this just made me realize that I have nothing to compain about.

The mercenary business obviously is paying well.. I wonder what the other cast is wearing, as last film he got everyone Bronzos to wear..

Yep. My old home neighborhood. I recognized the scale of the buildings more than anything else and guessed at the park.

Well I suppose our worlds would have collided at some point. I am dressed as Wayne right now but had I been dressed like my avatar this man and I would have had a serious conversation about his high flying ways.

Yes, I've tried on the JLC Deep Sea Vintage Chrono.  I was disappointed and thought it was overpriced.   So given your scenario I'd opt for a Rolex, and put the difference in price toward another watch.

Perhaps we did collide? I moved away about five years ago, but had spent many decades there prior. Do you recall Wonderland? That was the comic shop on Allen, just south of Grand. I used spend some time there, but I am guessing that was way before your time. I think it has been gone about a dozen years or longer.

Also, lately I have been obsessing over the Aquanaut for some odd reason or another. The Aquanaut, Royal Oak, and Nautilus have been getting a lot of attention from me. As has the new Rolex GMT BLNR. I should be able to pick up the Rolex sometime soon, if I so desired, but I can't help but feel that it will not quite scratch the itch.



Also, for those who do not visit Hodinkee, they have an interview with John Mayer. He may be the best chance we have for a TWATter to unite with the lovely Ms. Upton.
