    Now she's a keeper!

    Strictly a BBQ watch. It's incredibly impractical from a functional standpoint. The analog hands don't stand out from the background and the backlight is utterly useless. The positive digital display is actually quite readable, however; I'll probably use it for my "home time" and set the analog hands to island time for fun. "Fun" is the key here, not easy timekeeping so much. This is my first (almost) completely impractical timepiece.

    A man wearing a watch, outside of purely social functions (where, strictly speaking, a watch is not supposed to be worn), makes it clear to everyone in his purview that they are in the presence of a man who considers his time something of value, not something to be wasted.

    I like it. Looks like the Portuguese flag.

It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."

    For some members here though -- like Steelerswit, and Kubr1ck -- they have so much inherent "bad-a**ery" that when they put on a bad-a** watch, the energy flows from them TO the watch, making the watch EVEN MORE bad-a**!!! Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    I freelance and live in California; prohibition is over. Oregon would be even nicer but I couldn't do there what I do here vocationally.
