こんばんは。How’s it going?

As some of you might know, I love wrist-watches. I don’t have a huge collection, nor are there any expensive pieces, but I enjoy wearing them, watching videos from other watch enthusiasts, and “window” shopping online.

Today I took two of my watches to a watch repair shop to get the batteries replaced. The Casio tide and moonphase watch (AQW100-1AV) with stainless-steel band has been dead for a couple years now, and the Goofy watch hasn’t run in about 30 years. But both are back in action!

The Goofy watch, which I bought when I was in high school, is too small for my wrist, so I gave it to my wife. I don’t think she had seen it before, but she’s happy to have it! I’m surprised actually. 😄 It just needs a 16mm band.

The Casio aviator watch (MTP4500D-1AV) with the orange hands is my newest addition, just purchased last week. It’s got a quartz movement, a stopwatch function, and a slide-rule bezel. I think it looks nice, and after I replaced the metal band with the black silicone strap, it’s very comfortable on the wrist – the most comfortable in my little collection. I prefer automatic movement over quartz, but I loved the look of this Casio and the price was nice – just $33 on sale!

My favorite watch is still the Seiko SXK007 diver, followed closely by the Seiko SNK809 field watch, but the new Casio aviator watch has quietly entered the mix.

This evening I watched Roma. It was a grippingly beautiful and heartbreaking story – the scene at the hospital left me a wreck, the ocean scene had me on the edge of my seat, followed by another incredibly emotional moment on the beach. Wow. One of the best films I’ve seen in a long time. Definitely recommended.

Good news: I received my certificate and pin from the Cloud Appreciation Society! So proud to have found my people. 😄

And as if on cue, we’ve recently been treated to some nice sunsets and cloud formations. It’s especially nice to open up the garage first thing in the morning and be presented with an amazing sunrise. I’ll post some of those in the future. For now, here are some evening skies.
