Thanks for the article. I have neither the time, expertise or contacts of Mr. Adams. Appreciate having a scout to survey the terrain and share his findings with us who otherwise would never be able to do this on our own. Please continue to offer this great service.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Behind The Curtain At aBlogtoWatch: What A Watch Blogger Really Does
It is a beauty. A RW was my first real watch, although being a babe in the woods then, it was a quartz. At first look of the dial, knowing it is a Sunday in April is all fine and well. Knowing the whereabouts of the moon is ok too, but from experience, having a watch show me the date has prevented me from appearing as a total fool by being off by a number or two. Then i started thinking outside the box and realized if one was to sync the watches moon cycle to his significant other, it could serve as a dandy early warning system.

Congratulations. You do have a flair with words. Sounds as this prize was well deserved.

Well said, JonnyD. A precision mechanical machine on one's wrist will always trump a electronic gismo.As with fountain pens, vacuum tube audio equipment, and analog vinyl records. Sometimes older technology still king.

Thanks Ariel, To boot up the watch it will first require standing on a sidewalk for 26 hours in cold, wet, windy, and/or sweltering weather. Apple new product launches are a marketing mans version of heaven.
It's beautiful. Much of our civilian technology eg internet, gps and so on trickled down from military roots. This homage watch was the result of WWI soldiers neither having the time nor luxury of retrieving a pocket watch in battlefield conditions. Converting timepieces, to be worn on the wrist, (wristwatch) a valuable improvement. Just a bit of whimsy by accenting the nine on the dial. Love the spin-off feature, (maybe deliberate?) of having a mirror on the case back. Never know when you may have to start a fire in the bush or send morse code. If nothing else its just plain cool. 2892 movement not shabby either.

Sorry, but I'll stay with my aviation style (blind man's watch). I do wish i had the luxury of time to be able to spend thirty seconds to figure out the time of day. Reversos are cool too, but if I was going to do something really physical like polo playing (?) or chopping wood, Uh..Uh. My watch comes off. If i really want a beater watch plenty to had for under twenty. Greenbacks that is not, thousands.

Bit of a stretch I say. My watches and fountain pens yes, they make a statement about me and to me. I do appreciate the detailed description of the physical design that without deliberately studying it, I'm sure would have entirely missed. I really have to get into the ninties with my cell phone technology. Seldom use my old boat anchor of one. Too many people have given me ample feedback "silence is golden". Internet access? Great. Now I could be welded to it 24/7.

defintely will look twice if and when I see one of the beauties in my travels. Unfortunately there are zillions of under a hundred buck quartz watches that try to imitate a thoroughbred such as this. Although to steal from Porsche; "The real thing - there is no substitute."

Thanks Ariel. Well said, (as usual). Having a precision machine on one's wrist certainly is main reason that it gives pleasure. Oh yes, I forgot; it tells time too. Knowing it is the distillation of 400 years of development and refinement helps too. The deeper one digs into how it works, greater the appreciation.One aspect of mans fascination with time is of all creatures, only humans have a sense of our mortality. Time, (please no Einstein physics right now) is a constant and we are aware our passage through it, Perhaps in a way a fine time piece is a way to make our inexorable journey a bit more enjoyable
