Horological Meandering: Nothing, I don't want another watch right now

2020 was such a profound year for me, and it wasn't just COVID, that I've walked away with a deep appreciation for what I have and practically no desire to add anything new. If was the first year in 17 years that I did not buy a new watch and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Automotive: I've always wanted to own an Aston Martin, for as long as I can remember

My dream car would be a 2015 Aston Martin Vanquish, their grand tourer and the last year of the naturally-aspirated V12. I promised myself that before I pull the trigger, I will test-drive a Tesla for comparison. I think a small part of me will be heart-broken if I prefer the Tesla.

Independents: This is a watch that pictures do no justice to. It really must be seen running live or in a video to be fully appreciated.

TimeOut: I wish there was greater consistency of moderator censorship on this forum

While I totally understand that some may find baby Jesus in an Amazon box to be offensive, there are also several recent posts that are frankly offensive to women.

Independents: I agree with you, the early Dubuis pieces are spectacular!

I have a couple and you’re right, what more could you ask for? That’s why - and I mean this as no offense to any owners here - the pieces coming out of the maison Dubuis today leave me a little sad. The spirit of RD the man is clearly missing and that makes these older pieces all the more special. T

Independents: That's a beautiful RD, and I thought long-and-hard about one....

But my anal-retentive self could never get over the way the hands overlap the "3" and the "9". If they had just omitted the 3 & 9 altogether, I'd probably be owning one today! Best, NickO

TimeOut: My favorite Olivier Giroud moment.....

Was when the woman he had a one night stand with posted a picture of him in the shower on her Instagram feed. Needless to say, poor Olivier had some explaining to do to his missus......
