Just let me know...
...if you want me to stop.
You're going to have to give me a few minutes to... collect myself.
Also, maybe a nap.
and maybe a cigarette (and I don't smoke)...
Comic relief for the day. I would just like to definitively state - before "Anchorman 2" comes out this December, and before the "Ron Burgundy coyote coat" becomes the new must-have winter coat for men - that no frills wore this coat about one full year prior:
On topic given TWAT, was wearing the 3970J back then:
(NB: Date for the pic is March given unseasonably cold weather earlier this year, but had the coat in November/December 2012. Hahahaha!)
Root beer GMT on shell cordovan nato...
Nice coat, frills. Now you need it in a shiny leather like mr burgundy.
love that second group Coxaca ... thanks! The Concord is indeed "interesting" but equally hideous at least to my eye.
+1 I live my SubLV! And to the OP, just because production ended doesn't mean you can't buy one.
Just admit, we all thought you were Bruce Wayne, but all along we've been chatting with Ron Burgundy! Great coat! Reminds me of the old "Barron" coats with beaver lapels by Rodex of England (sadly now out of business). Mr. Burgundy, its always a pleasure seeing your 3970J especially with such a cool coat.
People with chronos, such as Daytonas, do you leave the chrono running at all times? I leave mine right now inactive and sometimes people ask why my watch isn't running. Other than draining the power reserve faster, is it bad to leave it running?
I have found myself in the position of having wanted to time a trip and then forget to stop and record the time, letting the chrono run for several hours in the process.
Sea Dweller today.
That's exactly what I think about the GF World Time....
Which is why the Glashutte limited edition Cosmopolite is my new grail watch....
No I don't leave it running all the time. Draining the power reserve doesn't bother me, but it puts needless wear and tear on the chronograph. I had seen this same question asked a few times so I once asked a watch maker about leaving a chrono function running, and he replied, "Why would you do that? After you drive home, do you go in the house and leave your car running until the next morning when you leave again for work?" He said, you can do that, the watch isn't going to explode, but it puts needless wear and tear on the gears, etc. He said its good to run it sometimes just to keep everything in good working order and lubricated, but he wouldn't leave his chronograph running all the time.
Been there, done that.
