That is a beauty!  I don't think I've seen a DJ with a strap in the flesh before.  I know they came out with those silly colored strapped ones but other than that I can't think of any.

What do we think of this handsome little chap? A birthday present from my wife for a recent 'significant' birthday. First sold in the year of my birth.

 

Incidentally, I'm assuming you're all talking lbs for the deadlifts, not kgs? I used to be pretty happy with 120kg (=260 lbs) but then I'm quite skinny.

^^ I've never liked the fluted bezel that much, but on a strap it looks far nicer.  Very classy and understated - yet Rolex and dead crocodile.  That's design success, I feel.

 

Your Majesty, I sense that this will indeed be the season of Frillyvolity: I thought I was happy with my dainty dress watch until I started wearing a fat diver.  Although my bulk is more around my waist and yours in your biceps, the proportion issue does catch you: on your wrist, yes it looks big and chunky.  But to someone looking at the whole you, it's just a proportionate, sporty accessory to your overall chunkiness.

 

I think being brave enough to buy the "wrong" watch, just because you love it, is an important affirmation of personal integrity.  Also, now you've compared it to your equally top-heavy pneumatic pin-up, I'm convinced this is a done deal!

 

P.S.  I don't really know what all those numbers and things meant in the last few posts.  But it's not the first time, and I look forward to your next uber-kop to get us back on track. :)

 

 

Edit: posted at the same time as Dachsund - looking great!

If frilly were deadlifting 500 kg's, I do believe he'd be the current world record holder, or very close to it wink.gif

Layman / Dachsund: great vintage Rolex pieces.

Their sports watches probably get more love around here, and definitely more exposure....but both of those are stunners.


Speaking of exposure: that was a nice find, frilly icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

SI is a real treasure trove LOL....

Amazing how hard you can go on yourself with a change of angle, tempo, rest between sets, or sequence of exercises.

500 squat is very impressive, you must have been pulling close to 600 then!smile.gif

Never attempted a one rep max and eventually hurt my lower back in 1994. Been much more careful/technical since then.

But all my thigh and calf size were built from 1990 to 1994 when I was lifting that much. To this day I don't hear comments like "hey you forgot Leg Day." Hahaha!

My right calf says hello!

My right calf is a bit more bashful at the moment frilly, but it returns your greetings regardless biggrin.gif







P.S. The only thing I've lifted today is about 20 ounces of coffee.
