By hand you say? That is quite beautiful!
Yes, entirely by hand. OK, he uses some pedal-operated machines which were already in existence 100 years ago.
Incredibly, Daniel Roth (the maker of the above watch) also made the dial and even the case. Well, that's what I was told.
The only parts of this watch that did not come from his own handwork would have been the sapphire crystals (front and back) and the strap.
Interestingly, this extraordinary watch is now owned by an Australian. The photography is mine.
Just had to convince the bartender that I'm actually over eighteen.
I would have thought the dress sense of a 48YO onto his third wife(who is younger than his eldest child) would have given it away.
I'm older than my second wife's parents. Does that count?
You fellas and the wives you go through. I still haven't gone through my first one yet!
At least they didn't receive a priceless 17th Century Qumrani vase.
My ex wife hasn't even been born yet!
Yeah, just to clarify, I can buy the watch tomorrow no worries and the missus wouldn't bat an eyelid.
Point was more that there's the inbuilt working class default which is you have a list of priorities and no matter that you have the means you tend to tick things off in a sequence, or at least I do.
That would be the Swatch sistem 51. $200 Swiss made mechanical watch that you chuck away when it breaks down.
When does the TV show start JM?
If Dr Phil can do it, then so can I!
Seriously, though, I think that it's just good sense - concealment and deceit aren't good in a simple friendship, let alone in a marriage that is supposed to be between equals.
It's not about concealing. But rather be independent financially. Do your 50% shares or even 100% if your salary allows you. What ever you agree with your partner. The rest is your foff money. Do what ever with the rest without feeling guilty. That's what I meant. After you pay your share of the bills (could even be the 100% of the house hold expenses+ your join saving goal ) rest is your pocket money. I openly admit that me and my wife have our independent finance. And my wife openly admits how supportive it allows me to be. I can understand this may not work if you have children.
has anyone ordered from brooks bros recently? made an order on monday and it still hasn't shipped yet - called them today and was told it apparently takes 5-7 days to 'process'. insanity.
I have 2 weeks ago and arrived exactly on the 7th calendar day.
