With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Not bad for a Citizen.

I suppose it's only a matter of time before some self-appointed watch critic downgrades Arnold and La joux Perret simply due to Japanese ownership. I look forward to it and have a speech prepared.
And the fact I'm still living rent free in his head makes me grin and giggle.

All I know is that the day I got to watch a watchmaker take apart, fix, and put back together an automatic watch - all while letting me stand there and ask questions that must've sounded pretty inane to him - was the day I became a wristwatch hobbyist for life.
I bought a dive watch from them that literally had “dive” in the name. The instructions said not to dive with it - it was only meant to LOOK like a dive watch. It was also fast by more that a minute per day. Garbage. Never again. - IWG buyer on Reddit
