Automotive: Prejudiced much?

"...a part of our country where they don't like to work." Talk about an overgeneralization, which should have no place either here or anywhere, really. As an American Indian, I'm probably more attune to this than most, especially those in majority society. And let me tell you first hand, such overge

Girard Perregaux: Cool!

How good is the luminescence on this model? Seems like it could be quite modest. I like the 'stealthy' appearance very much; such stealthy models are increasingly capturing my attention. A tourbillon escapement on this model might possibly look superb!

Patek Philippe: Thank you, Bill and everyone!

I knew I'd made a mistake when with my younger son and I were hauling a very heavy Schwinn Airodyne AD6 upright bicycle frame down the stairs to our lower level when I suddenly realized that I was still wearing my 3417! However, my zip sweater has very long sleeves and protected my Patek-restored ge

Patek Philippe: Slumming it with my ref 3417 this Sunday...

If you've never heard it, the ticking of the cal. 27-400AM is truly intoxicating!
