I’ve started on the planning stages tonight. I’m going to buy three more 375ml bottles in addition to the one I ...

Re: What’s your favourite C60 generation

DISCLAIMER: This is a purely academic answer for me, as I’ve never owned any version of the C60. For my money, I’ve got to go with the Mk1 Trident, specifically the C61 because of the smaller size. While the mk3 is a stunningly beautiful watch, it’s just a bit too refined for me. I think a dive watc...

Re: first gig in nearly a year last saturday...

Excellent! I bet it was a great feeling to be performing live again. Any video?


EDITED TO ADD: That PRS! The 513 is a thing of beauty! I wanted one of those badly when they were first released.

Modded Seiko Sea Urchin on a Strapcode bracelet today. For months now this watch has bounced between a tropic strap and a leather strap. The bracelet is a nice change of pace.
