    And to prove that, you may have a couple pics of some stuff I was wearing today, since I just posted it up elsewhere on the net... hairy knuckles ftw...

    Thanks! Kind of you to say so. Aside from the shoes, which are a little more unique, I think of today as my homage to middle-market accessories. :D

    Holdfast's sense of fashion makes Giorgio Armani look like a homeless man.

    :lol:

    It's not a particularly high-end watch; as I mentioned upthread, most of the accessories in those pics except the shoes are pretty much mid-market items rather than particularly unique. But I like its classic style, which suits most of what I tend to wear. Also, because it echoes an older aesthetic, the size is a bit smaller than modern watches tend to be, which suits my wrist size too.

    If you're really interested in getting one, it's a Longines Heritage Conquest Automatic. Mine's about 4ish years old now, and it's going pretty strong. I'd recommend it. I think it might need a service at some point soon (actually, it's probably overdue), but I'm unacceptably lazy about these things...

    That's easy.

    Buy me a newer, nicer one.

    See? Simple!

    I would love to have a watch like that. I like heirloom watches. Oh, and now I know what you mean by "mid-market". I saw the prices and just about passed out. Holy Schnikes, I'd buy a watch like that but I'd have to sell my car to do it! :lol:

    Indeed. :D

    Slightly horrified to realize how much Dan and I have aged over our years together ...

    Oh, I'm certain the two of you could easily get involved in wacky shenanigans, but you're still adorable. :D

    Compared to some, you've hardly aged at all. I could show photos of Mrs Australis and myself, but... the horror... the horror...

    I'm loving all your photos! There's something about putting faces to names and avatars that makes me happy. Also, welcome aboard, firecrackerrr. :)

    Here's me in our back garden, modelling a top I knit.
