Jaeger-LeCoultre: Fantastic and quite moving story

What great persistence and earned good fortune. I would preserve the provenance of the steel bracelet, archive it and then wear the LeCoultre with a black leather strap. Worn straps can be replaced but that bracelet is unique and historical. Best, Clive

Horological Meandering: I have a great admiration . .

. . for Klaus and all those other designers and sculptures of prototype watches for the manufacturers plus their engineers who make the machine tools. Artists, engineers and mathematicians all. It is a privilege to wear their products. Clive

Horological Meandering: It's a good looking watch . .

TimeOut: I do not know about US law but in the UK . . .

. . . the employer is liable under the doctrine of vicarious liability. The employee should seek legal advice. Why take a $30K handbag to a dinner? Wear and tear, which is why handbags exist to protect the contents, not to boast about personal wealth. I have little sympathy. Clive

Zenith: Of course

It was Ebel's order for the EP cal 40.0 and 400 that contributed to the revival of Zenith after Zenith had suffered at the hands of the start of the quartz era. The rest is history and now where is Ebel? Clive

Sharing my walk home through Blenheim Park yesterday. Over one year since I last wore this Ebel calibre 134 (EP cal 400 inside). Fans of Don Johnson and Miami vice should recognise! Best, Clive Blurred Blenheim North Lake and palace behind
