I’m Getting Closer…

0

I wrote a while ago that I would really like to replace my Casio Sea Pathfinder watch but since it still actually works I don’t feel justified in doing so. The reason I bought that watch was to replace a Suunto Vector that leaked while diving. I liked the ABC functions of the Vector but […]

0

For a while during American history watch making had a strong foothold in America. I am of course talking about pocket watches.

When I was a kid I briefly, briefly because I got fired, I worked at a BMW dealership. This was maybe 35 years ago. Back then BMW was doing things that the more progressive car dealerships are doing today. Things like a loner car, free coffee for customers and in the showroom, one complete wall […]
