. . . for a change."

"What change?", you may ask.

A period-correct 16 mm steel buckle signed 'Omega' on the back . . . 




. . . fitted to a simple black lizard strap.

Acquired my first Omega chronometer eight years ago. This is the most recent score, from . . .

. . . last year. Six altogether so far. ;-) ...  

😂That’s nice, and you’re actually not the only one in the US — another good example I know of (since it’s from my field of research) is that of mathematician David Bayer of Columbia...

Ever noticed that Russell Crowe never appears when he writes math on the board in ‘A beautiful mind’? OK, his hand in the movie is actually Dave’s hand...and this is/was the (algebraically significant!) license plate of his car!😉🥇 ...  

I swear I didn't look this up: 'syzygy' means . . .

. . . an alignment of celestial bodies, right? The only reason I knew this is because it's the last word in the dictionary under the letter 's'.

Nope:-) It's not exactly easy to define "syzygy" in a few words (I only do it in advanced grad courses, and trust me that it takes me a few weeks of work!:-), so this is the wikipedia link...

Basically (but very basically! ), syzigies are the relations (or the relations among the relations, and so on, until you stop thanks of a theorem of Hilbert...) among polynomials.... Another cute property is that "syzygy" is, or so they say, the only word... 

Oh. Well, that couldn't be simpler, eh? . . .

. . . . . . (And yes, I got the bit about five consecutive letters being under the line. My formative years were spent in a British school, so writing zed longhand came immediately to mind.)

If you give me enough time, I might be able to work in . . .

. . . a James Dean reference. ;-)

How 'bout mentioning California vanity plates . . .

. . . I've seen in the distant past instead? You must be tired of James Dean by now. ;-) DVSBROD : devious broad - orange '80s Mazda RX-6 driven by a woman. BLKMNRR : black man's Rolls Royce - '65 Cadillac, black driver.

😂😂😇

Thanks, D! . . .

. . . my one and only jumbo chronometer . . . at least, so far. ;-)

Omega

I can tell you all, Omega is the first choice right now for me. It is one of the best, and i can not wait to buy a seamaster.

A new Seamaster? . . .

 
 By: Dr No : November 2nd, 2019-10:27
. . . like . . . . . . this? ;-) ...  

The wavy pattern in malachite . . .

 
 By: Dr No : November 2nd, 2019-11:09
. . . bares a fair resemblance to the design of current . . . . . . Seamasters. It's really more fitting than one might surmise at first glance. ;-) ...  

Some really great photos in the thread!

Great watches and captures, Art!
