If you ever want to kill a bit of time try watching some of these videos.

They're good as they're non snobbish and don't make you want to go buy new watches, but rather it makes you appreciate the ones you have more.

It's also nice to hear someone talk about watches not with a Swiss/German/French/American accent.

Professor Larrington and I are competing vigorously to be the ones not to inherit the family grandfather clock, a timepiece of singular hideousness.

Me: Larrington Towers is too small.  I ent got space for him.
She: The ceilings at Larrington Colij Oxfod are too low.  He wouldn’t fit.

Etc.

She didn't mention it when I heard her on a podcast this morning.

Well, she wouldn’t.  Not relevant in her quest for Media Tartery :demon:

Mechanically impressive but, I'm sad to say, stylistically hideous.

I suspect most of the 10 they plan to make will be locked, unworn in bank vaults as investments.  The Faberge egg of watches.  I like the Reverso style, but would prefer a simpler & cheaper model.

I seem to have acquired a aged* Rolex Air King, so I suppose I'll have to start wearing a watch regularly again.

* circa 1960.

My dad had nice watches but elder brother seems to have inherited them and I got the grandfather.  It’s proper old though.

Sic transit and all that..
