Cheeky sneak pic ..... From Sicily
Okay so here are the pics of my time hosting the watch, thank you pithy for letting me babysit the watch.
The watch originally came to me as im from london, however it was just at the time i was due to go on holiday to Sicily, so i took it with me.
London Snaps - Trip to a client in Waterloo
Sicily Snaps - On Holiday in Palermo, Terrasini and Cinisi
View from the pool
In Sicily, so there had to be a pizza in this post somewhere!
Trip to the port....
Trip to the beach....
The watch found a friend whilst on holiday with me...
And thats it .......
The watch will be sent off shortly to its next stop, i hope you all enjoy the photos.
And the watch arrives safely after it's short hop in Surrey.
Well no holidays in the sun and most unfortunately no pizza either but at least the watch has been out and about today. Which reminds me. Who is going to put their hand up and admit to running the watch through a demagnetiser? The pivots on that compass aren't in great shape but I suspect they may not have been for some time - however the needle is completely demagnetised.
That does lead me indirectly into being out and about and specifically I seem to have run across quite a few articles recently about watches made with some form of sports related time recording complication. But they seem to have been largely limited to a few high profile, glamorous sports which looked good in the watch companies marketing. The rest of the sports world, outside of autosport and yacht racing seems largely uncatered for.
This evening I ventured out to one of the local cycling clubs ten mile time trials, well actually it's on my way home! It's a very English thing, for all that like 'soccer' it is now done all over the world. How often do you find a sport where no one is actually competing against anyone other than themselves and wait politely in line to start? To be fair there are sometimes prizes and kudos for the fastest. Putting aside the lycra, strange bikes and pointy hats,
it's all rather quaint. But also to the point it's one where time is very, very important, but here only stopwatches find a home.
The watch is getting more wrist time, but shots have been few and far between. I had a shot planned which might have kept you amused on the food association but unfortunately I forgot the watch and had to shoot it with another one. To keep on theme with Jonathan, here is a random Audi shot before the scheduled program continues.
