    Panerai makes nice straps but they ain’t cheap. My preference is the assolutamente straps over just about anything else they make.

The farther he advanced, the calmer and more self confident he became. That type of discipline made all the difference in the world for him. I think self control with youth is more related to self discipline than anything else which is basically what you’re saying.
    Yes, self discipline is a good way to sum it all up. I said it in so many words? Must be becoming Panarol Forte or StephenCanale. LOL.

    Karate and some of the main stream martial arts teach mind over body and self control. Good on you (and good parenting) how you navigated him through those years.

    Proof positive that if you try to hard and take your eye off the ball bad things happen. But I’m comfortable and most importantly healthy as is my family. That’s the most important thing.
    Now you’re being facetious. That’s how your statement appears to me. No need for that mate. There is a reason why everyone says ‘wear it in good health.’

    Yep, but different roles require different hair styles, attire and tools.

    Ragnar could do with a SS Rolex tool watch.

    Maybe a Seadweller would be appropriate?

    Ragnar's hairstyle would not work for a Captain of Industry....
    I dunno, think you would function just fine as Captain of Industry with that look.

    I fear a SD would be too tame for Ragnar who might be better served with a MM300.

    Nothing wrong about his hair style to be honest. I don't know what you do for a living so I don't have an idea of what is deemed acceptable hair style. Would it be black suits and Brylcreem for you?

    Yes, King of the Vikings need a big DSSD. LOL.

    A Captain of Industry with such a hairstyle would project the image of having "fück you" money.
