Horological Meandering: Buy and keep for a long period, but ultimately it was not sustainable.

I eventually had many, many more watches than I could wear or than I wanted to maintain. I reduced my total watch numbers drastically (at least 80%) and was well satisfied with the outcome.

Horological Meandering: I consider the Van Gogh Museum and the Rembrandtshuis to be museums.

Horological Meandering: Very nice group; I would add something with an AP 2120/Vacheron 1120 movement.

Food & Wine: Nice plating!

When we order in, the food on the plate usually looks somewhat pre-chewed.

Seiko: Hoping you find a previously-overlooked drawer full of additional Seikos

Horological Meandering: I have been known to go all morning without putting on a watch.

But rarely, if ever, an entire day. It's fun to wear a watch. Why not have fun?
