Since Hungarian is on the edge of his seat, I thought Iíd jump into the fray and see what I can help uncover for Boxcar since Iím an explorer by nature and profession......but, since itís a tad early as you can see here....



.... AND since they most likely wonít be amenable before High Noon, Iíll get the dubious double darted devils onto the table for a runaround....

My two favorite watches I mostly wear are the Planet Ocean and the Avenger Titanium.
I was intending to add a Daytona but collecting pool cues just seemed to get in the way.

It is not my style at all.... I am a fan of very thin, square faced watches.... the current trend of huge clockworks on your arm is funny as hell to me.
I know, quality of manufacture and all that, but it is still an ugly look for me.
Of course, we all have our own opinions....

Fine watching are cool, but you know what I was out riding my 26 y/o bike this am, the computer on it keep track of total distance, cadence, time on ride, ave MPH, and about 3 other thing. Also tell me time of I need to check. The old Computer on the Bike is also 26 y/o, it work as long as you put a New Battery in it. I do that on January First every year. My Cycling Shoes were bought back in 1994, Leather Diddora brand, they don't look bad being over 1/4 Century Old. Leather cream, and paste polish make em look great.

Like Pool Balls a good set will last almost for ever if you care for em.

Best wishes.

I do not believe the set you have pictured is the Renaissance. They look more like the Heirloom Set.

Right you are sir! The Renaissance set is absent from the vault, with a note card in itís place saying ďTony 3/15/20Ē and Iíll be darned if I didnít forget about that I was merely trying to get Hungarian off the edge of his seat while getting my Sherlockian skills fired up.....and then dear Rubikís Cube piped in with the details.

The only exception to your smart phone is if the battery dies, internet goes down, or the power goes out.

Friend is Retired Major - USAF Navigator,he was on B - 52's with the latest electronics, and GPS. I asked Bill why even have a Navagator on such a modern aircraft.

He said were were the manually backup from take off, to landing. I had to know manually were we were in flight, correct for headwinds, tailwinds, side winder, etc. After explaining all he did on flights, I ask were you the crew member who was the busiest? He replied yes, you get what I did.

Believe he was in School like a Year to learn math, navagation, map reading etc. Very critical job.
