Birkins and wristwatches

It may seem that the hard earned repute of Hermes stitch is threatened by lesser work experience with the leathers. I have noticed much more error and less “sharpness” in edges. I have Birkins which are well worned, with patina of age, looking graceful and elegant. They retained sharp corners and excellent stitch regularity in pressure and taughtness in the way the stict pulls around the leather. ALL DONE BY HAND. To a person like me, I will use Birkins to illustrate what I mean by long lasting good work.Imagine watches, made so well…like from DeBethune, Rolex, Patek, Richard Mille, MBF, Laurent Flerier…and many more. They will outlast and outlive leather.Even leather, from these Birkins are over 40 years...

AskMen is an interesting site, the title may not be something we want to do.

Even as a doctor, a real one, who watches “life” and collects time…I won’t usually ask men, but rather women, the wise ones and the streetwise ones, especially women with years of life behind them. Like my wife and a few of her friends. But this article is about my own interview with AskMen about…”Expensive Watches” what else yah?

my first entry since 2006 from a defunct blog

I have been inspired to enter and begin a new fresh blog since the world has (1) Turned incredibly serious and self reflective. (2) I am now really mature biologically at age of 50s, and I am about to see if one, ie me, can grow backwards and be 48 by next year. I was actually born in 1958. Basically this means running on a treadmill 5 to 7 km daily, and reading more. (3) Thepuristspro and facebook will continue to be my so called more public journals. (4) My children are more matured and actually more knowledgeable in many facets of life than I am, except for experience (5) I am much more happy, wealthy, and healthy. More important, I was inside the ordinary curve like everyone else, and I made it out without a grand influx of dollars. I think that I can help...
