An absolutely awesome pre-Invicter GLYCINE "Combat," featuring the Swiss made ETA 2824-2 automatic movement, all held snug to the wrist with a superbly beautimous HORWEEN leather strap. 8-)

Tropical Storm Cindy's eye will roll directly over us tomorrow. Rainy and glad we aren't further east. Expecting up to 5" rain; but, we are on high ground with no trees near us. Just wish I could sit at home, read, and watch it rain all day.

I adore that model Ball, Biglove. Definitely one of my favorites from them.

Um, just by way of advice, it's probably not a good idea to tell a guy named biglove that you "adore" one of his balls, especially if you both happen to be in jail when you say it...um, for what it's worth. :???: :shock:

Thanks for well wishes and Ball gags. Well, you know what I mean. So far the only damage is my wife's new pair of tennis shoes.

Took the dogs walking in a break from the rain, the Corgi got off into some wire bales being used for the slab on a new home build. Little shit got her head stuck and went bat shit. Wife ran off through the red mud to the rescue and just as she got to the pup, the fluffball freed herself. Wife looks down, $150 sneaks destroyed.

Figure we are ok. 😜

Thanks, Mr. Thunder1! Well, it's appealing to me enough to be the watch I wear the most. It gets even more appealing, when one takes a look at what it's got under the bonnet:

The case is quite interesting as well- one day, I might do a write-up here on WL about Eterna screw-back cases in general. I wanted to do that for quite a while, but I'm still looking for more info.

Just made a pot of gumbo. Pup wants some. She still has red dirt on her nose and it is all over the house, too.

Another ultra-beater, but this one even I can't believe: This was was a gift I received almost 20 years ago; someone picked this thing up for like $40 at place called S&M Pharmacy in Queens. I used to wear it every so often, but since that time, it's sat in a watch box untouched for I don't know how long. Doing some moving of an office this week, so I was looking for a beater, and I chose this.

The semi-remarkable part is that I absolutely am sure that the battery has ever been changed in this watch, yet I looked at this this morning and it was showing the exact time. Some stuff just can't be explained. Bad old photo:

She knows she isn't supposed to be up under my feet begging. Or getting her head stuck in wire. Or tracking mud through the house.

LOL.
