Now for some bank holiday sport…

A more relaxing start to the week than usually, being a bank holiday today. Now let’s see how much reading gets done before the kids figure out an urgent need to be met 😉

The Chopard LUC Sport 2000 is a great companion irrespective, and Chopard’s previous attempt at a sports watch (prior to the Alpine Eagle, after St. Moritz). While never much of a seller, it makes for a superb, understated allrounder, that can easily dress up or down, depending on the strap.

And the fact that it is something completely different from Chopard is a refreshing change.

Back then LUC was still to be established…

I wonder if the hype will pass generally 🧐🤷🏻‍♂️

But you’re right, still available without any silliness being involved 👍🏻

That’s a lovely Chopard !

And is the book “ To End A War “ by Richard Holbrooke by any chance ? 🙂. Or something similar on that topic on the diplomacy around the Yugoslav conflict in the mid 90s

Not quite - the book is ‘Africa’ by Richard Dowden

Didn’t get much chance to read it yet but the conflict here was the Rwanda one 👍🏻

Ah ok 👍

I’ve read “ shake hands with the devil “ on Rwanda .- quite harrowing 😣

Looks familiar....

A lovely all rounder from Chopard, not unlike the Aqua lung of the day from BP. I have had all the dial colours as well over the years. Exceptional value in the pre owned market and is starting to increase in price as more people realize what good value t...  

Thanks a lot for the advice!
