    @Diak, Lol! Yes but you have great weather, women, wine and food so you can't have everything....

    Noodles I have a shot of the 'actual' seal on my phone but iTunes seems to have lost it... (oh no, here it is found it) and yes that is just a mock up and wasn't actually meant to be shown on the net but someone got a hold of it so I posted it too so its going to be a little like this but not carved in 'stone' so to speak....

    I like the subtle "ATG" in the middle there...

    Your bleeding-edge Now is always someone else’s past. Someone else’s ’70s bellbottoms. Grasp that and start to attain atemporality.

    Okay, so here is my "new watch ignorance" in full force. Double retrograde movement...I've been looking it up online and every double retrograde watch I've seen has TWO second-hands. Sometimes one goes forward, then another goes backward. Some have two hands in separate places both going the same way. In the Victory...will it go up to 30 and reverse back to 0? I'm just trying to figure out how it works.

    As I understand it, double retrograde simply means that there are two retrograde hands.

    First retrograde hand on left will count seconds to 30 and then reset to 0. This is a constant seconds hand.

    Second (double) retrograde hand on right will indicate the date, and will reset to 1 at the end of the month.

    In that case, how do you know if you're showing 5 seconds or 35 seconds?

    That's why I was thinking it would either have another hand underneath it or it would reverse at the 30 second point and count back down...is the reversal even something that is feasible?

    IF only there was a way to have the watch without the two pushers.....you could almost imagine Nelson owning one then....

    I talked styling a bit with Giles last year when he first told me.... I think it was a tough ask to combine the Bremont DNA with the idea of the 17th Century....and I think they have done a great job.... I like these pushers for styling but not sure if Giles saw them......
