Re: Nato advice for C60 Trident Pro 600 Blue 42mm

+1 for the Bond striped NATO. I think that looks great on just about any watch. I also think you can’t go wrong with the admiralty grey or the basic black. Add in a shade of blue that’s close (no need to be a perfect match) to the shade of the watch. As many have already stated, lots of opportunity ...

Re: Discussion: Maturing as a collector

As a peruse this forum, I’m constantly giving thought to what type of collector I am. And I think the answer (at the moment) is that I’m not. I’m simply not in a position to build up a collection of a whole host of watches, for a variety of reasons - finances, a wife who might not be on board with i...

Oh my god, I hated that novel when I had to read it in high school. I will, however, chalk that up to poor instruction more than the novel itself.

Nice watch!

Re: The Picture Thread

After 12+ months of quarantine, it’s time to start traveling, start photographing, and start sharing again. A little something from Cape Cod…

Re: C63 Elite strap showcase

The Elite looked great on almost all of those, and for the ones on which it didn’t, it’s probably a case of personal taste rather than a bad combination. Thanks for taking the time to share this.

I hope this design sticks around for awhile. It’s incredibly versatile.

Re: Record Player recommendations & questions

UPDATE….

I never followed up with this thread! I wound up buying a Fluance RT8, and I love it! It’s a HUGE improvement over the Ion.

That is an outstanding view. I think I’d like that view even in the rain.

My Current View

On Cape Cod for a week visiting my in-laws. My wife was born and raised here, and my in-laws are still in the same home my wife grew up in. This has very much become one of my happy places - perfect for unwinding after a long school year. So, as the thread title says, this is my current view, and I’...

C65 Trident Vintage against the back drop of my in-laws’ place on Cape Cod. It’s always nice coming home to where my wife grew up.

Re: Show us your face mask

A coworker snapped this pic of me as I left school on the last day. I didn’t have the typical classroom management issues I typically have. Wonder why?
