    i wish i did not know most of these abbreviations. Too much time spent in a giant metal tube, exposed to exotic global viruses at 35K feet and sampling the free booze. Can't be that good. Fortunately....my travel now is mostly elective.

    When I did fly....I always wished for a mechanical geographic watch, but with a cheater backlight.

    Have been wearing this smartwatch the whole week.

    Last weekend the local electronics mall was flogging them (slow movers perhaps?) and I couldn't resist the bargain price.

    I like it and in its own way I find it even somewhat useful but I don't think it will replace my mechanical watches.

    This evening and interesting old piece. I'm not sure if I've posted it before. It was made sometime between 1928 and 1931. I really like the Art Deco look. The case is yellow gold and the hour markers and chapter ring are rose gold. The hands are still the original blue steel hands it had when new. The "crystal" has never been touched and, as you can see, could use a good polish or replacing. Not very valuable but a fun conversation piece.

    Thank you. I have a pretty big wrist so the Yachtmaster 2 and the Deepsea are the only two Rolex watches that looked right for me.
