  • This lady is making good quality jewelry for men without any money, knows how to get attention and the cash.

  • That diver is a beauty. It’s in a class similar to the Longines Legend Diver IMO. Very well done, but if I had a criticism it would be the placement of the date window. Looks like they wanted to line it up the the crown, but because of that it’s kind of in no man’s land at 3:40. I normally like my watches to have date windows, but I might have left it off this model. A little odd, but I can live with it I suppose. Another great interview.
