Old tech/new tech 1950 Tesla boat 🚣🏼‍♀️

Me and my middle son have had this boat for 4 years now. It was a nice wooden Swedish boat from 1950. Motor was a 1972 Volvo Penta where you had to add lead to make it run. But the motor was gone and couldn’t be saved. We installed a turbine motor and 4 s

So, here we go: a more decent picture and some background on the Heuer Carrera ref. 2447 NST "Volvo"

So, the simple story is that Heuer presented one to two hands-ful of these special dial Carreras to the then Volvo Board of Directors. Then being around 1970/71. The crazy thing is that the Heuer Shield had to make its way down to the 6 o'clock subdial -

Hello NJ!

Took a drive to NYC Woodbury Outlet to let wife maybe do some “revenge spending.” Turns out, there is only “revenge” sanitizing/cleaning and waiting. You have to wait in line to get into any store because of social distancing. And when you enter the store

Ulysse Nardin Sonata / Volvo P 1800.

A quick wrist shot taken in my beloved Volvo P 1800 some months ago... The encounter of 2 universes: The magic of a watch, the charm and the soul of an old car. Unbeatable. Best, Nicolas
