Ok, so Moanday was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and when Mrs Q asked me what I wanted, and did I want "Another Watch" I immediately showed her the Casio Pro Trek that I have been coveting for some time. She was not impressed, and said she didn't want to get me another tool watch for such an occasion and that I should choose a dress or classic style watch that would stand the test of time and be more aligned with such an occasion. I then directed her to Orient Bambino small seconds which I think are really classy and she said it looked too old fashioned. So with great trepidation I doubled the price and showed her this which she took to straight away. So here it is my anniversary new dress watch. I'm finding it awkward to get a picture that does it justice as the lighting here does not help.

I bought Mrs Q a Mother of "Pearl" faced Armani watch, her choice, so we both got new wristwear.


Congrats on 30 years, that’s getting rarer these days. And congrats on a lovely new Cocktail Time. They are rather nice pieces!

“That’s Exactly How You Treat Listening To Vinyl as You Described.Its an Art Nowadays as opposed to how we used to do it in the 70’s And 80’s Just throwing an LP on and lifting the Tonearm then dropping it all by hand🙈
I cringe seeing that now😜

Lovely Smiths Astral John👏👏👏⌚️
