Love my Chrono-Matic. It's a work of art.

Hi Tom,

I almost missed out on it, my business partner knew I was into it, and called me from Duty Free at Heathrow where there was one for sale, he negotiated a discount, called me and bought it. WHEW!!!!

Lovely watch in every way.

Thank you Sir,

The lines are less visual when the watch is on the move, but they do accentuate the dial in a very gentle way.

Wears quite easily on a strap or bracelet and they are so easy to change.

Can't see myself ever letting this one go. It's just too beautiful

Stay safe & well.

Davey.

Good day Ron! I hope all is well with you.

Retirement is a little difficult at the moment what with everything pretty much cancelled. Even the Golf Clubs are closed..

However, I'm enjoying time to do a little art and fooling with my watches again.

Stay safe now!

Oh I'll be watching The Superbowl highlights on TV tonight.

Davey
