Okay, straight to it. Last weekend saw me wearing this;

15557681


AND the Citizen Eco-Drive Nighthawk!

Switched the Sub back to its bracelet, but wrecked a spring-bar in the process;

15557684


Over to the Oris Divers SixtyFive Blue & Black for most of the week;

15557686


Haven't read Casino Royale since sometime back in the '90s. Figured I'll re-read the Bonds from scratch, but I'll skip From Russia With Love and You Only Live Twice because I've read them in the past five years.

And today, it was time for the Omega Railmaster;

15557687


I'm gonna get around to trying a Forstner 19mm flat-link bracelet on this watch. See how it goes.

Anyway, short and sweet this week. Got a few emails to write this weekend and I may as well get started. After I watch Episode 3 of The Mandalorian, Season 2.

Stay safe all, and I hope you have a nice weekend.

Watch y'all wearing?

Very nice as always Tino and William!

In my case wore the Pelagos, the Sinn and the Yachtmaster during the week:













and will probably wear all three during the weekend. Have a nice one and be safe!

Bond-fans and scientists share sadness in the news that the famous radio-telescope Arecibo in Puerto Rico will be decommissioned. Built in 1963, Arecibo held the record of largest telescope in the world with its diameter of 305, until 2016 when China’s Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope became operational.

Hurricane Maria dealt a devastating blow to Arecibo in 2017, causing massive damage to the “dish” and toppling one of the (36 meter tall) antennas. While being repaired, one of the 8 cm diameter steel suspension cables snapped, causing more damage to the dish and instruments.

Arecibo has contributed to many scientific discoveries – shortly after becoming operational, scientists discovered that a “a day on Mercury” didn’t last 88 (24 hour) days, but only 59 days. In 2003 Arecibo contributed to the “discovery” that the lunar pole caps are not covered in ice as had been assumed.

It was a one-watch week for me, wore the IWC Vintage Collection Ingenieur Laureus Edition (quite a mouthful)

It's a gray and foggy morning / day in my neck of the woods, so decided to add some color to the scenery while out (and wore a different watch)

Great photos Tino, Will & Francisco!

Still in bloody lockdown here, but I’m working and healthy so I’m thankful.

Mainly running for training this week and currently at 51k for the week. It’s looking a bit clearer tomorrow so hopefully I’ll get out on the bike. Sunday I’m doing the Box Hill trail with the Mrs.

I’ll be wearing this also.

Hello teeritz, all
lovely looking watches posted here. (y) :)
serious looking feline, teeritz! ;)
love the photo of the waterfront, cybercat.

yes, MHe225, we cosmoslogy fans are saddened by what the Hurricane did to the Arecibo telescope. I was fascinated simply by its super structure & marveled at how it must have constructed. Like you wrote, it has been immensely useful to the astrophysics commmunity right from the get-go. And, a star appearance in a Bond movie too boot! Tough to let an old goldie go.......

Today, for me, believe it or not, it is the SM300 :) - photo from the mountain top from a recent hike over a weekend

15557855



yesterday it was the more staid looks of a Grand Seiko GMT - photo also from a different hike

15557862


On Tuesday, for me, it was a Bul Tuesday :ROFLMAO: (not a Speedy Tuesday)

Yes, it’s a shame the Arecibo telescope is being decomissioned; have been few times there through the years, last time on 2013 with my son and wife on a school field trip:





The facility was funded through Cornell University for many years, it basically went downhill after they stopped supporting it
