20100215watch1

Had a sweet lil holiday with Megan + Nick Arr-Dev to katoomba. Checked out some sights, some shops & some dvds.
We went to an incredibly large antique shop/dealership in Blackheath. I was busy looking at lusting over these incredible expensive ($500 each) original van der rohe chairs while megan spotted this watch and showed me. I liked it; it was different but still beautiful, what with its delicate spinning face yet bold chamfered edges. I didn’t buy it because it wasn’t moving, although it was much more agreeable to my wallet than the chairs.
We went and had some afternoon tea, fed croissants to swallows and put too much sugar in coffee.
I decided to go back and have a look at that watch again, to check if it worked, and decided i’d probs buy it if it did. I asked and discovered it was one of those watches that need to be shaken to power them up. It ticked and held its time for a few minutes but the lady said I should probs get my watchmaker to check it over when i get back to syds. I said i don’t have one and she suggested i befriend one. I’ll put it on my to-do list.
Anyway, it seems to be going fine, so i’m pleased with my no-refunds risk purchase. It’s also mad fun to shake your wrist and listen to it whirring. I just hope i can’t over wind it…

  2. I mainly like the line; “different but still beautiful, what with its delicate spinning face yet bold chamfered edges”. (Though having mocked you for that, I do agree with it).

  3. Points go to Megan for being such an ace personal shopper.
