Had a visit today from this little fella.

After adjusting the date from the 31st to the 1st.. it is much happier.

Tomorrow, it will go to Portland to participate in an administrative hearing and two interviews.

Tonight, there may be some endurance testing.

Aha! The next contestant is identified. Rooster, please resend me your address. Lord knows I've sent enough checks to you over the years I should remember.

Back to the task at hand.

It says 50M WR. For you yanks, that's damn near 150 feet or more. The hillbilly hot tub is about three feet or one meter.

Here, the watch is pictured underwater as I skinny dip.

First impressions. ...

I like the dial layout. I now want a taupe colored Explorer. My favorite thing on this watch is the canvas strap....

Side story.... I've taken to wearing more and more khaki and tan; or as would otherwise be approved by Higgins. With its strap, this watch fits right in. I fancy someplace tropical or going on safari. . .maybe one day.

I discussed all this with one of my cats, Mr. Mittens the kitten. Interestingly, MM (Mr. Mittens the kitten) took a liking to my friend Alain today. He mounted Alain and proceeded to find comfort against Alain's neck. Like a furry neck beard. Here you will find Mr. Mittens approving of the watch.

Update.


The Marshall survived.

After 2.5 hours of 92 degree water.... it keeps on ticking! Unlike most Croton divers.... no fog.

Of note, I read Indiglo earlier. I was amazed to find:

Also of interest, with phone in hand and other hand submerged, it makes it difficult to touch the crown to engage the green indiglo dial and take a picture. Especially when your hand and fingers are wet.

No name decided yet. Members should decide it but Marshall Wanker or Spanks may have a ring to it. :lol:

Marshall Wanker, 3rd Earl of Bazinga!, Durchlaucht von Spunkmeier?

Which is exactly why I hate to drink water, as Randy says, Fish, lumberjacks & pirates pee in it.

Godamit, this is a posh experience. I hope the Marshal will also see some lumberjack action, or he will be completely spoilt by the time You are done with him.
