Horological Meandering: Art, that punchline made me LOL!!

It’s just a little better in the U.K. I remember in 2nd year geography (12 years old) some wag took the world map and drew a to-scale Portugal on about 8 different West coasts. We then all got to play “locate the real Portugal” and, um, we didn’t bat 1.000 😀 NickO

Horological Meandering: Is Europe in France?

If you ask most American high school kids the answer would be a resounding YES! According to my geographically-challenged countrymen, Europe comprises three main regions: Lon-DIN, Pear-RIS and It-LEE. Yep, it’s like that. God bless the English, the French and the Italians.

Independents: I like everything about this piece EXCEPT.......

The Soccer on the bezel. It’s football, people, football!! FIFA has 211 member nations and almost every one of them correctly calls the game football. Soccer is like Voldemort - it should not be named. I always thought it was us dumb yanks who came up with soccer, I was heartbroken to learn it has i

Rolex: But the Aquanaut won the vote 83-1!!

I guess you’re taking the “you never actually own a Patek” thing quite literally in this round, LOL! Enjoy your YachtMaster if you pull the trigger tomorrow. It is a great watch, too 😀 NickO

Patek Philippe: The Aquanaut looks fantastic on you and fits your wrist perfectly

While I have the utmost respect for Rolex, the PP is simply in a different league and well worth the additional cost, IMO. You should get it. NickO

WristScan: Your Australian friend wouldn’t be a nun, by any chance?

That’s definitely one infrequent poster I wish we’d see more often around here. NickO

Horological Meandering: None of these options are good news for the brand

Which is why I tip my hat to companies who purposely and intelligently ensure the supply of their product is always below demand. Richard Mille in the watch world is a good example. I was having this conversation with the President of Rolls Royce Americas when they launched the latest generation Pha
