An excellent review, you damned old fool, of a very fine watch!

Gee, thanks, John...your untiring support and deep sensitivity to others' feelings are all critical parts of what keeps me writing these reviews and posting pictures of my watches. You old brassard!

Absolutely stunning. Flawless. I keep coming back to your review just to look at it. Man, well done.

JEEZ, Buster; so does that mean I should thank you, or send some big plank over to your house to rip all the flowers out of your conservatory and play Frisbee with your Peter Frampton records...and he'll DO it, too...assuming he can find someone to play Frisbee with him, that is. He's not real good with contextual tasking, you see.

Danged bubbleheads...bubble & squid is more like it...

Thanks so much, svagy; that means more to me than I could ever explain in a week of posts. The only bad screwup was the program -- which I will not EVER use again -- that was supposed to put my copyright notation in each picture failed miserably to do it properly. Oh well...that certainly does not, in any way, dampen the enthusiasm resulting from your very kind feedback, my friend. I am in your debt...

To ensure regularity of a surprisingly wonderful review ...

MORE FIBER MORT - much more fiber

a very unusual watch mated to a very unusual ... ah ... never mind ...

great photography - a most stunning timepiece - well presented ...

I dunno, Mikie...I think I'm still too young to go on a high fiber diet. Conjurer, on the other hand...

Many thanks for your very kind feedback. I like this new format a lot, so I think I'm going to stick with it.

No, it's very plain jane, though it had been very nicely polished so it wouldn't look awful, when the back used to open to reveal the movement...

...very good to see you here, arubalu!

Dear Mort,

There's only one thing topping those wonderfully entertaining ramblings of yours: it's the one following the one one's reading and thinking he's made the summit. Man, you never will I guess. One write-up more beautifully than the first one.

Congratulations Mort and keep 'em coming!
