Mondaine can be found at sydney vintage watches or SVW in the strand arcade. Or, in St James Arcade which is next to ladies DJs there is a small store on the top floor (next to IndoChine eatery) which has mondaine
I've not seen seagull retail unfortunately, and i'd be surprised if I did... seagull movements are chinese and while they put mechanical movements within the reach of many, quality can be an issue. Maybe just dont expect it to keep on ticking forever but the watches are a good entry into automatic watches. In terms of purchasing it is more likely to be online only
There are other boutique brands online depending on what you're looking for, whether its dressy or diver or cheap auto watch
Thanks for all the input regarding trousers etc. guys.
Just finished True Detective (spoiler alert) –
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
What did you guys think? I felt the quality strangely faded after the first two episodes, but on reflection, I think this move away from the show’s initial style was intentional. The show, as a whole, felt almost Lovecraftian to me, with those undertones of an unnamed, unknowable cosmic void/horror.
Also, after absorbing the finale, I was reminded of Aldous Huxley’s essay Heaven and Hell. Been a while since I read it, but again, that Lovecraftian theme of the terrifyingly unknowable. The reason I thought of Huxley as well was the idea of using drugs to attain that state, as Cole’s character does (unwittingly?), and also Errol Childers and the rest of the Carcosa cult. Does anyone know more about the Carcosa myth and/or how it might relate to the show?
On another note, any suggestions for a laptop? I want to use it for the Microsoft office, internet and adobe creative suite. Nothing too fancy and looking for a cheaper option. Don’t know much about what to look for re: ram, processors etc and it all gets a bit much. Cheers.
