TimeOut: I think I would be like your friends and question what you are doing.

But as others have said, you are an adult. You can make your own decisions and decide what’s right for you. Just make sure you don’t give away all your money as you need to keep some so you can buy me chicken rice next time I’m in SG! Keep well.

TimeOut: I expected a lyric from another song...

“She ain’t nothing but a gold digger, she ain’t messin with no broke...” (I’m trying to add some humour, no offense meant towards your ex).

Blancpain: No question it’s a nice looking watch.

Very pleasing to my eyes at least.

TimeOut: It’s really incredible what they did with what they had and what they knew (or didn’t know).

It’s not my thing and wouldn’t be a curiosity of mine but I did listen to approximately 4 hours of a podcast earlier this year which patched together the dialogue between the astronauts and the ground in a really coherent manner to tell this story. It was fascinating and really highlights your point

Blancpain: This is a great looking watch, and I’ve always believe that the Hodinkee collaborations are good for the brands.

F.P. Journe: I don’t think so, or at least I don’t think so in the foreseeable future.

It is unfortunate for you but that ship has now sailed. There are some fantastic pieces in the CS line-up, some of which come close to the versatility of the CB in my opinion.

Horological Meandering: I’m sure the brands CAN design these watches, but I would think the market for such watches is limited.

There is a reason they are not producing these watches, I don’t know what that reason is but my feeling is it is not because they can’t imagine it! I agree with you that we, the forums, should be the first point of discussion or the natural collaborator with the brands and indeed we/they were. There

Independents: France won the World Cup? I’d forgotten already.

The colours for this Joker, the red with the gold case, are very appealing. I’m not sure I like the novelty of the theme (strange to say given the base is a novelty itself!).
