Seiko: Lovely pen - you could have written Murder on the Orient Express instead of "the fox..." :-)

I had the Marquise de Pampadour which, unfortunately, was stolen (I had an oblique nib installed). I would love to get my hands on Montblanc's Alexander the Great, but that is a heavy pen to write with. And of course, a lovely Seiko timepiece!! Ah, the choices...

Ulysse Nardin: Ah, I agree.

Thanks for dropping by. But, the UN that got me hooked on mechanical watches is - different? - from the UN of today. Anyway, the people I was acquainted with in UN have left/were put out/moved to different posts. C'est la vie. Anyway, in Perth, difficult to get to the brands as most of them have the

Seiko: Yes indeed, I too love the old world charm of writing in ink...

...and besides the properties of the pens. nibs and inks, the type of paper is interesting as well. Hard to find a good variety of writing paper these days. Semi-flex - that's something new for me.

Seiko: And greetings from WA...

...sorry, but was not wearing my Seiko (a Seiko 5 piece). But, could not help noticing your ink bottles, although I don't have the opportunity to have the limited edition range. Hope restrictions are easing off in your part of Oz as well.

Ulysse Nardin: And you have certainly worn quite a few over the years...

...from the posts I have read. I too have, fortunately, never had a springbar fail on me, but my son, when he "borrowed" one of my watches, had that happen to him. Thankfully, the watch was not lost in the process (and he didn't get hurt either!!).

Ulysse Nardin: Thanks for the comments, guys.

Yes, it indeed a bit of a hulk, but I was hoping to have 3 different chronograph movements from UN - my first one having been the Valjoux 7753 tri-compax, then the Dubois-Depraz modified chronograph module, so I thought I'd get the in-house caliber (although I believe the UN-153 in this piece is bui

Ulysse Nardin: Quantieme Annuel

Just got my watch back from having its timing adjusted. Had taken it twice to 2 different ADs, but both responded by saying that the accuracy of the watch was within tolerance. So, had a local watchmaker check it out and he agreed it was gaining too quickly, and adjusted the timepiece. A lovely piec

Ulysse Nardin: Ulysse Nardin's home in Le Locle

I believe that's where the co-ordinates point to.
