Ooh, I like! Very playful!

JOKK would sound good, until you attach a strap to it.

Watch straps to facilitate teething ... makes perfect sense. 😉

hbein2022 commented on Yes, no or kind of cheesy bro ? ·

Agreed, it depends on the clothes. Then again, it's not hard to pair it with simple t-shirt, jeans, and maybe some white Vans. 

hbein2022 commented on What to do? An update. ·

Looks like a Lucius Atelier textured dial. You know, the markers are only lightly attached to textured dial, right? Or to quote their disclaimer:

Note: Minute markers are gently applied onto the dial with adhesive and will come off if touched. Please ensure you take great care when working with this dial and avoid touching the minute markers. Due to difficulty working with this dial, this dial is ONLY recommended for professional watchmakers and highly skilled/experienced modders with great level of finesse.

So, I did my undergrad in theoretical physics, and it's been nearly 30 years since I busted out the good ol' Maxwell's Equations and Lorentz Force Laws, and if somebody held a gun to my puppies' heads, and said, "Solve these partial differentials or your dogs gets it," I'd have to say good-bye to my beloved miniature schnauzers.  

Ah yes, I can still remember my first Hamiltonian like it was yesterday. 😀

Now, now...it wasn't my Ferrari. But yes, you would see them in front of the restaurants on a Friday night in Walnut Creek. And no, nothing quite as exciting as the witness protection program, but it was a conscious change.  Once you figure out that there is a working public school system where I live now, how much lower the overall cost of living truly is, and that you can maintain nearly the same money once you are professionally established, the lifestyle in Ohio becomes extremely relaxed.
