I don't care about your "rules," man. (OK I do but I wore this anyway.)

@Coxsackie that Schubert adagio is transcendent.  Have you seen Kenneth Branagh's film "Conspiracy?"  I usually hate films appropriating classical music, but they put the Quintet to chillingly effective use.   

 

I'm not sure I'd want it played at a funeral, but if my good friends got together after I passed with a good whiskey and played the adagio from Mahler's Ninth Symphony, I'd be happy.

Good evening gentlemen,

 

Wanted to get into the Fri challenge action, here is my submission ( I don't know if I should post this here or on the challenge page so forgive me for the mistake). The suit is chocolate brown with a blue windowpane and the shirt is blue. This is probably the brownest thing I own as well. Trying to use my phone again to get better pictures rather than my shoddy webcam, so atleast the lighting is better this time around. Trousers might need a press though... Accessories are gold and shoes are burgundy wingtip boots. Hope you lot like it. Cheers.

You'd need a lot of good friends for the Ninth. Like, about a hundred of them.

 

I haven't seen "Conspiracy". A good friend in Shanghai once told me that his favourite piece of classical music was the one featured in Kubrick's "Barry Lyndon". Oh, I said, that's the slow movement from Schubert's Piano Trio in E flat, and we're performing it next week. He was thrilled to hear this news. "I'm definitely coming to that!"

 

And come he did. He arrived fifteen minutes before the scheduled start. Unfortunately it was a full house and they wouldn't let him in!

@Hal Freeman you are welcome to post your Friday Challenge submissions both here and on the Friday Challenge thread. Many do. But to actually enter the Challenge, you definitely have to post it on that thread.

@Coxsackie

Thank you for the advice sir, I will go post my fits over there.


With many thanks,


Hal

It's my best watch, without question. Superb in every respect - design, execution, finishing, horological interest, and rarity value. (Mine is one of the original limited series of twelve pieces in stainless steel cases. I was lucky enough to jump in when someone else cancelled their order.)




The "1912" engraved on the caseback signifies the year Tim and Bart's grandfather founded his watch business in Oldenzaal. Their retired father still maintains the old clock in Oldenzaal's town square.

One of those twelve watches - I believe the first to be completed - was reserved for him. Interestingly, that piece was cased up in early 2012, exactly a century after the founding of the family business.

"The Horological Brothers" have gone from strength to strength since then, with each new release featuring some kind of movement innovation encased in visually stunning exteriors. Within the industry they are without doubt one of the most highly-respected independent brands.

You need to show this piece off in the TWAT thread, Coxy.

Dress down Friday, so no tie.









Shame I couldn't crop more of the background, my workmates are messy buggers! And the usual apology for iPhone picture quality.

Has this jacket been shortened? The pockets seem rather low.

I don't wish to know what that is.
