A little Johnny Cash and my de facto daily driver again today as I try to power through a teeny hangover.

Did you wake up this morning with no way to hold your head that didn't hurt?

I didn't get the digi memo this morning.

Went for simplicity after my initial choice didn't want to work this morning (bit like it's owner ).



Excuse the cracked crystal.

Enjoy your weekend.

Thanks Mike ,he's a lovely old fella :) , I used to sit and chat with him and his brother for hours ,listening to what they'd got up to as young men [ his brother was a WW2 pilot and flew a fairey Swordfish ]

Great story Jim - that is indeed a special watch ....

5606-7220 LM from Oct 72

My friend gave me this a good few years back,he's now in his 90's and has lived a colourful life :grin:,he ran away from home at 15 to join the merchant navy and spent his working life on the high seas getting into all sorts of scrapes .He told me he bought the watch in Saudi Arabia in the early 70's ,possibly from a yank sailor [ as he put it ] or maybe a pawn shop [ or, once his Neice was out of earshot ,possibly a brothel :grin: ]
Date corrector doesn't work but it keeps great time and he reckoned he'd never had it serviced.

Great Story and Great Watch Jimmy Sir,Maybe as a Testament to your Friend get that Storyteller Watch Fully Serviced👍⌚

No digi today, and probably no fish.
When I opened the drawer this morning, this little thing was looking at me with its big eye.

Mines a bit Sick at the minute as he’s decided not to allow me to change the Date anymore😢

I got this gift watch in 2005. I take it out to wear today, fifteen years later. It has been sleeping longer than Snow White.

Didn't bother to size the bracelet but put it in on a silicone strap instead.
