RGM Yosemite National Park Watch

Yosemite National Park in northern California is for many nature lovers perhaps the greatest of all of the United States of America’s wondrous natural gifts with its ancient sequoia trees, towering rock granite formations, many waterfalls, 1,300 kilometers’ worth of breathtaking trails for walkers and hikers of every level, abundance of wildlife, crystal blue lakes, and super sweet, fresh air.

Called Ahwahnee (“big mouth”) by the indigenous people who lived there until the Mariposa Battalion of the California State Militia drove them out around 1851 in the Mariposa Wars, “Yosemite” refers to the Miwok tribe.

A few days or weeks within the park is like stopping time: it gives the body and mind space to breathe and rejuvenate.

I wish I could be relaxing in Yosemite Park’s lush Central Sierra embrace right now. But, alas, traveling to this all-American landmark is sadly very unlikely for quite a while – at least until the world stabilizes again. For now, my lovely memories of sunny family vacations in a natural paradise will have to suffice.

Good looking case!
I like those cases- he uses those in a series of watches with intricate dials- some of the engine turning on those is insanely incredible.. Marquetry's cool shit- dying art.

AIR, this one passed through here before. Beautiful stuff,

Beautiful artistry. Honestly, considering the level of craftsmanship, this is a steal compared to some of the mass produced Swiss watches in stainless that sell for this or more.

Yeah, that’s right Submariner. Back your ass on up.
