Revisiting Something Awesome

Now in fairness, this piece of horological drip (that means dope, which means tight, which... gentle reader, means good) came out some time ago -

I go to a LOT of watch events/shows.  Typically, I am not wandering around gawking. I am manning the tables, talking about the brand I am representing, listening (more often than not) to yet another devotee of all things Rolex go on and on and on and on (sorry, just wanted to give you the flavor) and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about their reference -"ireallygiveashitxjy32skeedoo - you know the one Steve McQueen was wearing while he was taking a bath with his first wife. No, not the one with the Hanhart! No, not the one with the Tag Heuer, the ROLEX one!!!"

The scene, invariably, is Brooklyn or some other similar environ. Ironic tattoos and beer that you didn't want to drink when you were in high school flood your senses with a visceral overload instilling you with an unshakeable conviction that you are truly an alien in a foreign land. COVID-19 is scary enough, don't get me going on Millennialitis!

But I digress...

I think, invariably, we all are looking for something that we identify with. And for better or worse, a strong part of my personal watch identification, my "horological looking glass self" if you will, is intertwined with the Eterna Kontiki.

And this bronze green goodness continues to haunt my waking dreams. But I promise, I will not corner you at a watch gathering wearing a trucker hat with Pabst Blue Ribbon in one hand, and droning on endlessly.  I'll let the watch do the talking ; )
