Travels With A Marathon Watch

Post by koimaster » October 10th 2021, 9:38pm

There's always a reason to postpone an adventure, but resist the urge. This one would have gotten off to a much slower start had it not been for a push from a little watch – or rather, a medium-sized watch. Inspiration to get out there and explore didn't come from magazines or documentaries in this case. Instead, it came in the form of a recently-released 36mm Marathon mechanical watch dubbed the "Arctic MSAR." I had been putting together the framework for a trip meandering through the Southeastern United States, but the fickle nature of life's routines, and of course a number recent of circumstances that no one could have ever predicted, made it difficult to execute. Or maybe I was just waiting for the right companion.

Then the Arctic MSAR showed up.

A few weeks ago, I packed up my truck and set out on the road to hit some muddy trails in the Ozarks, experience the soul of the Mississippi Delta, and soak in the Gulf Coast vibes. The Arctic MSAR wasn't just along for the ride, it was part of the reason for it.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
