    Time to battle the snow here in NYC!

    No snazzy dress shoes for today - that's Alden's Indy 404 boot with vibram lug soles. Bring it on!

    P.S. Today I stocked up on chips (Baked Doritos) - not instant ramen...

    Well, the clothes might have gone downhill, but the Daytona's rocking...and you're working through all the major student food groups....[​IMG]

    Oh, I also picked up a small bag of Hershey's Kisses. This is the real secret to six-pack abdominals! Heh heh.

    Forgot to mention that the Daytona's 72 hour power reserve is holding true as far as I can tell. Quite convenient given my small rotation schedule with my other watches, but since it doesn't really have a date that needs to be set it's really not a big deal to have it stop.

    The Daytona can more than handle the blizzard, and being paired with boots. For me, it was a Royal Oak and jeans with an old pair of Prada boots with a vibram lug sole. It was nice getting out of the office early for the storm. However, I'm dreading the clean up.
    Yes, the116520 Daytonas really do have a 72 hour power reserve, provided you are not using the chronograph function...in which case I think it drops off to about 64-66 which is still far better than the powe reserve of th previous El Primero based movement.

    Hershey's kisses are great...although I'm hoping to get those six pack abs using my wife's homemade apple strudel or chocolate chip cookies. I'll let you know how that goes!

    RE: Vibram's lug soles. I love the rugged look to it, and so functional especially in the rain and snow; only thing is that I still wear through the outer sides of the heel anyway, given (a) the way I walk and (b) how much walking I do in NYC. The dress shoes get taps, which I replace every 3-6 months.

    Hope the cleanup isn't too bad! Do you need to shovel? You can refuel every few hours with the apple strudel or chocolate chip cookies!

    I love the look. I hate the price tag. Other comparable quality divers for much less out there.
