Photography: Yesterday's sunset in Santa Monica was quite nice.

It became very orange and pink by the end, but no Eiffel Tower appeared.

Horological Meandering: Okay, here's some heresy: maybe you're just tired of mechanical watches.

The members of this forum enjoy them, but I think we would all acknowledge that they involve costs in both money and convenience. People don't necessarily keep the same interests forever. If you have moved on from mechanical watches, there is nothing wrong with that.

Omega: Indeed!

Highly functional and finely made watches, with real horological significance.

F.P. Journe: Any insight on the chipping of the teeth of the escape wheel?

Obviously the chips are very small, but do you think the watch was made that way or did the pallet jewel chip them? If the latter, do you think there are little bits of metal floating around in the movement? Tremendous picture, in any case.

Rolex: Unless it's an actual screw-down bezel, I prefer smooth.

I used to have an old Rolex (old like 1920s) that had an actual screw-down bezel. I assume that is the origin of knurled bezels used now.

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.
