I know, dude. I know.
I’m gonna crack that 6:00 barrier even if it kills me. And since I’m 52, it very well might kill me.
Haha. Joke’s on you. I could do that through my 20s, for about 5 years. Now, at 45 and busted knees - my daughters laugh when we do lunges together and my knees crack even with no weight on - there is no way I could crack 6:00, even if I were still running. Maybe if I was being chased by an actual lion.

I‘ve always played sports but was never a runner (track, cross-country, etc). But since my CF box has been closed due to Covid, I thought this would be a good opportunity to set some running benchmarks. My endurance is pretty good (I think) but after reviewing the tape, I think I may be able to drop those last 13 seconds with better technique. Probably going to go to my local running shoe store and see if I can hire a coach. But if I hit that 6:00 mark, I’ll move on to something else.

I liked this watch until I learned the retail price. It should be competing with the GP Laureato and Chopard Alpine Eagle, not the holy trinity luxury SS sports watches.

The full retail price or the best price out here?

Movement looks interesting, but the design is meh.

4 out of 5 of the letters in Patek*, with the same dial positioning and colour scheme as the Nautilus, and the bracelet a hybrid between the Nautilus and AP RO bracelets (superimpose one on the other kind of thing). The hands are quite Nautilus-y. Minute and hour hand are closer to AP RO.

Well, don't change a winning formula, and all that.

* I'm aware of the history of the name and link between the two Patek founders, but this brand was "revived" in 2011 by a "marketing consultant" making the decision rather purposeful.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
