The other day on the Choob sat a gent, younger than me (which doesn't narrow it down much) wearing a simple, steel-cased, slight dressy watch of a mid-century style on a very dark burgundy strap. Was it a JLC? An old IWC? A PP? A GP? Something that isn't normally expressed in capital initials? It certainly looked like any of those. Sharp and classy without trying very hard. As the train lurched and banged off the sides of the tunnel like it was 1896, an arm shot out and I had a look. It was a Rotary. A fucking Rotary. Damn, it looked good. Not one of their Chavitimers, or one from that range of theirs with the missing dial and a spray-painted Miyota with holes drilled in it, but a standard sort of Rotary they have been making since, well, about 1896, that could have been 5 or 30 years old. If I hadn't been able to see the sunburst dial and giveaway marque at the 12 o'clock, I wouldn't have been any the wiser. Also, I wasn't particularly disappointed; all I thought was "smart choice, cobber".
Anyway, back to my e-book and not looking up at anyone!
