Why I haven’t been posting anything lately

Time is precious. That’s why we measure it. Hours, minutes. Days, years. Moments. That’s my Father’s Day watch in the photo as some of you will know....

What you want is these, and a careful hand. More precise than a scouring pad (which is often the wrong grit anyway) and a more elegant weapon, from a more civilised age.

Oh, and do mask off the polished edge with scotch tape or electrical tape. You may still have to use the cape cod on that bit carefully afterwards.

Add a popper, two poppers, or Velcro instead of stitch. Solved.

Thankyou so much to everyone for your kind words and messages of support. I am … touched and amazed at how many, and when there is time I I’ll go through them all and add emojis or what have you. I have told little man he has the whole WC behind him basically, and I think it brought some cheer for sure.

Swooosh swooshhh hear me skate.

Orient Mako is -2 on wrist, +8 face up on side.

Pagani Design 1667 came in at -1 to -1.7 on wrist, and think it was similar when left alone, but I don’t really remember.

This is from recording daily in an app, not using a timegrapher. There’s a timegrapher screenshot for them somewhere on my posts… worst case, I want to say one was -7?

Anyway. Pretty accurate.
