    I put watches back on bracelets every autumn, and every autumn I remark on how incredibly comfortable the Omega 1171 bracelet is.

    You and me too.

    It being a '65, you were spot on. Go hotel libation, go!

    You aren't wrong that the shape was certainly popular in the 1970s, but the 60s had a lot more heterodox design-sensibility than you might think. It just seems staid in comparison late-60s and 1970s.

    I like my aluminum Series 4 watches. The titanium edition Series 5 looks awesome, though.

    It was actually made in 1965.

    I got the UG back from having the battery replaced. I do really like this watch, with its period correct 20x14 Spiedel lizard strap and gold-plated buckle.

    What are you reading now?

    I don't have any mixed feelings about Malcolm Gladwell or Bill Simmons. I don't mind Audiobooks.

    Oh, did they? Anybody with two-thirds of a brain has known that since the brand started. If I wrote a long, boring blog-post about Hitler being bad, would I be exposing Hitler as being bad?

    Well, yes.

    Incorrect. The opposite, in fact.

    If I hadn't just added the Drive Extra, I think I would get this. I think it's beautiful. Less than half the price (you can get substantial MB discounts), too. Mr. Cerrato is doing amazing work. https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/montblanc-heritage-gmt-value-proposition

    Human ears aren't the issue. Human ears are a relatively easy things to model. But our ears aren't how we hear. We hear with our brains, and the brain is entirely manipulatable. Deaf people can experience sounds, just as blind people can experience sight. Limbs that aren't there can be felt. Only an ignoramus would worry about tiny fractions of THD when it comes to an inherently fuzzy and subconsciously (I don't believe in tue consciousness, as an emergent property, and I think FMRI studies back me up on that*, but we sort of act like we are truly conscious) subjective input-analysis system like the human brain. * of course there are easier things to demonstrate this: try to remember what you were doing 50 miles behind you on a road-trip when you were driving in corn-country. I bet you can't, but you also didn't crash your car!

    I never want a wifi-only product ever again. I have cellular on everything, and I'm totally used to it. About the round vs rec case; I have mostly round watches, but I wear my Santos about 90% of the time.
