I love the dial on your Rolex Datejust. Can you tell us anything more about how you chose this one.

this is unusual dial for a DJ.

 By: psfparis : May 22nd, 2020-07:11
a dial for the sunny days, bcse reflections with the "guillochage" are absolutely beautiful. Old picture - in the south of france next to the pool waiting for bbq (just collecting the pine cones in the wood next to our house) hope covid will let us go the...

I think this picture gathers all the conditions. Pakistani Milspec on a Motley Crue cover album. What else could you expect from Vlad? Of course some good wines, too. And as you need a car to go to the Party... ...  

Welcome Nicolas !...

Cover makes it a classic! Tim

Thanks, Tim! [nt]

Might've mentioned before . . .

 By: Dr No : May 22nd, 2020-13:15
. . . that I was acquainted with Randy Castillo. Spoke with him literally days before he died. Humble guy, made a point of talking to me as a fellow regular at The Rainbow. Not an ounce of attitude. Can't believe he's been gone for eighteen years now . . ... 

That's a winner!

 By: Mary Anny : May 24th, 2020-07:25

Grazie, Simone. [nt]

Please wait for me Captain!! I have already chosen my watch for this BBQ, but I'm still in the process of selecting shirt, shoes and hat, not to mention the pants, jacket and belt...

 By: FabR : May 22nd, 2020-07:37
So here's the shirts that, after lengthy deliberation, made my shortlist for this event: ...and the shoes... ...even though I haven't entirely discarded a few other options: As for the hat, it came down to these three... The only accessory I had not doubt...  

That’s the spirit Fab 👍...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : May 22nd, 2020-08:00
Just don’t forget that you only have until Sunday to join us ;-)) ... and I’m not entirely sure about the cash point that you are using 🤷🏼‍♂️

Wow Fab!! I can understand that it is not an easy task to choose your outfit with such an awesome collection! But anyway you always manage to arrive to an end with high style!

 By: Subexplorer : May 22nd, 2020-08:31
By the other hand choosing a watch should have been easier I feel: you can´t never go wrong with these watches or any others from your wonderful collection. I´m not sure about your currency selection though. But please don´t worry: I will be arriving with...  

Pesos! :))) [nt]

... my chopper with the meats and some gauchos from my team to deal with the "asado de tira al asador". Please remember to keep them always well supplied with some wine. They need it to make a good asado. I´m incuding the wine (they are not sofisticated) ...  

Welcome dear friend !...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : May 22nd, 2020-08:43
I absolutely love Chimichurri sauce and I will ask Mrs Scarlet to take good care of don Zoilo the Maestro Asador. We will clear the landing pad for Little Nellie 🥂

Brought up Randy Castillo . . .

 By: Dr No : May 22nd, 2020-18:19
. . . as the one musician I was acquainted with. There was another, however slight: David 'Ted' Turner of Wishbone Ash . . . . . . who shared a table with me (or I with him, it was so long ago I can't remember!) a few times at The Rainbow. The funny thing... 

You just have to smile and remember ...

Hi Tim !...

 By: Cpt Scarlet : May 23rd, 2020-02:03
We can always rely on you to show us something interesting. That’s a cool looking watch from Stefan Kudoke. I always liked his creative designs for the open worked dials, especially the KudOktopus. Have a great weekend and I hope that you and your family ... 

Thanks Capt.!

 By: Tim Jackson : May 24th, 2020-10:18
As much as I admire Stefan’s hand skeletonization of his pieces, the more simple, classic pieces appeal more to me. His artistic work though, is still pretty amazing. All good here thanks! Cheers, Tim

A lesser-known surf tune . . .

 By: Dr No : May 23rd, 2020-16:14
. . . especially for you, Tim. Fond memories of Huntington Beach when the downtown theater played surf films back when I was in high school . . .

Thanks Art!

I just got home from a stunning morning surf, it was one of the those perfect days, no wind and 3-4’ ! Great longboard time😉 Cheers!

A little bit a mess of very old and new parts, but still unsinkable, well, more or less. Thanks

Actually a 1967 watch with newer parts. Got wet after a dive in Italy in the nineties and Rolex did their classic job... One day I'll get a proper meter-first dial for it! Saludos
