Horological Meandering: The correct buckle is essential.

They can be difficult to research and even harder to find, but I definitely prefer wearing a watch with a correct buckle.

Food & Wine: Looks great!

Our West Coast lobsters have great flavor; a bit more gamy than the Maine variety. On balance, I prefer the Western version.

Always nice to learn of your explorations.

Horological Meandering: My wife has her own collection; one son momentarily showed interest.

But now she rarely wears a watch (after all, who leaves the house any more?) and my son completely lost interest. That is fine with me; watches are time-consuming and expensive and should only be pursued if one is really motivated.

Horological Meandering: Better resonance.

Helpful if you are in a position to consider a repeater. I usually use a titanium 'cello endpin and fine tuners (as opposed to steel), as I like their effect on the sound of the instrument.

Independents: Very nice and fitting.

I only wear automatic watches, so I won't participate, but that watch looks so nice, and so horologically meritorious, that it almost made me change my practice!

Horological Meandering: Timekeeping, maybe?

If you are the old-fashioned type who likes watches to be accurate, it is possible that IWC has an advantage.

Horological Meandering: It was a long-awaited, and very enjoyable gathering.

Very nice to see everyone in person with reasonable safety, and I must say that some people did some very productive and well-chosen collecting while isolated. I can confirm that the Mickey Mouse watch is an Ingersoll owned by Mrs. C, and the IWCs were from Mr. C. There was another very interesting

Food & Wine: Nice! My wife does the same around Santa Monica, and I experience similarly mixed feelings.

Sometime she even rings a stranger's doorbell and asks for permission to pick fruit that is not in the public domain. That usually works out for the landowner, as she (my wife) is very generous with the resulting pie, jam, etc.
