As Time Goes By..

…so says the old song..

A year ago I bought a watch for my dear wife. Not just any old watch, no, she wanted a Tag Heuer Aqua with mother of pearl and other blingy bits like gold and a diamond. I found one, bought it and wept at the sight of my greatly reduced wallet. She loves it and has worn it every day since she got it.
The time has come for a service of this expensive piece. We have a service agreement, the first two are free and they are annual. Corona has hindered us in getting in on time but they were very understanding at the jewellers and “no problem, Sir” was the order of the day. So far so good.

Seiko Presage automatic_InPixioFourteen years ago, I bought my own watch there too. A Seiko, fully automatic, generator and batteri driven. It has served me very well. It is also in need of a service. The weight that drives the works has become noisy and the second hand moves in a less than ideal manner. I delivered it at the same time and, again, no problem. They will ring and give me a price. All is well.

Now neither my wife or I have a watch at present. (Not entirely true because I have a few cheap ones for daily use in the garden and the shed, but not, well, nice.)

Then this thing caught my eye as I was leaving the shop. As a secondary accoutrement it will serve my purposes. It will (hopefully) not be a replacement for my grand Seiko but one does need to consider one’s appearance.

Again a Seiko, automatic, from the “Presage” series. Not terribly expensive but elegant enough and it isn’t too heavy.

So I bought the thing.

The dear wife says it’s nice. Thank heavens….

    Ha ha, tillykke med dit nye Seiko og gudskelov for fruens godkendelse. Hils dine søde gravhunde hvis de lever endnu, jeg tænker på dig når jeg ryger på den Refbjerg bulldog(Danbark) du solgte mig for år tilbage.

    Nyd foråret Hilsen Jacob.

      Hej Jacob. Desværre er de to gravhund væk for længe siden. Nu er vi underkastet en lille chihuahua, også en hund vi har “redet” fra et internat.
      Godt, at høre fra dig. Håber alt er godt.
