I May Have A Small Watch Addiction

Sorry if I’ve been a lazy blogger. I’ve been working on some well-researched and thoughtful posts, but mostly its been too hot to concentrate on much more than work I am paid to do.

Speaking of which, I had a work-related meeting downtown yesterday, so I popped over to my favourite old-timey jewellery store, Fidea, to make sure it wasn’t hurt during the G20 kerfuffle.

They were okay, but I was alarmed that their display of new old stock watches had been depleted. Not to worry, they were just behind the counter. I was so relieved that I bought one — a 1970s Fidea private label model (pictured above).
