Rolex: It looks great this way.

The Z-Blue opens many options for owners with imagination and a willingness to give the bracelet a rest. Well done. Best, Tim

Automotive: For now. But easy or quick charging is just an infrastructure question, not a tech one.

Improvements in charging speed and access solve most of the problems. Plenty of people shied away from gas cars due to price, complexity, and scarce infrastructure in the first decade of ICE. Horses made more sense when stables were common, hay was cheap, and gas stations were rare. Best, Tim

Automotive: I suspect gas powered cars will be for hobbyists

How many pre-1980 cars do you see on the road? Almost none. Most ICE cars already disappear through attrition and recycling. I suspect that the natural course of disposal and retirement of older cars will cull the herd to a level that's sustainable on a hobby basis. You'll have some kind of vintage

Independents: Fantastic tourbillon implementation

I have to admit that I'm the type to wear the solid dial 95 percent of the time, but that's why I love this watch. Five percent of the time, I'd enjoy the tourbillon in the privacy of my own home, car, or office. My old JLC Reverso Platinum No. 2 was the same way. That's the kind of flexibility that

Independents: What watch!

Fantastic choice. I never warmed up to the original Steel Wheels, but the tourbillon adaptation is outstanding. The blue sapphires and extra dial animation win my heart. Best, Tim
