Ah the très sexy Polaris - 10 months and still a love affair ...

I know I haven't posted in a while, so I thought it would very much appropriate to get back to what has been in my horological sphere lately with proclaiming my ongoing love affair with this perfect baby - still going strong well over 10 months with no sign of quitting ;-)

I especially love it on this custom vintage tanned cognac calf (whose color I have always difficulty describing for some reason) and ever since spring it has been my main go to choice for a daily wearer. Just love the compliment of the vintage look with that color and the way the stitching is perfectly matched to aged tanned look of SuperLuminova - ah the details that make the perfection.

Taking it for my summer vacation where it will be at home in the deep blue of the Adriatic. I will finally switch it back to the very comfortable OEM tropic which is after all the reason this was made for - underwater and very sunny conditions.

Lastly upon my return I decided I will provide you with my one year anniversary review of this very special piece to me.

In the words of Bowie: Ch-ch-Changes .... Apologies all over !

In the immortal words of David Bowie:

(turn and face the strain)
Dont want to be a richer man
(turn and face the strain)
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can't trace time.

Firstly I would like to say thanks to all the kind readers and followers of this blog for your continued patronage, patience and concern. Sorry to all you that have contacted me over time especially about my abrupt lack of posting in the past six months. All I can say is sorry for dropping out on you without any clues or notice. In truth I have not abandoned this blog nor my pursuit of blogging about all things that make my mind tick especially when considering the horological sphere. However I had to deal with some personal family issues that have struck me suddenly and following that I did embark on a new professional venture which simply consumed all of my free time that I had to be dedicated to this blog.

That said currently I am trying to find a right balance in order to further incorporate my continued contribution to this blog. If I don't have time to post much of my musings or often enough it will be simply for a lack of free time and life priories rather then any abandonment issues. I hope in future to see you still visiting and enjoying the content posted as you did in the past. Now that I had that off my chest I thought it would be appropriate to end this with a great song - so would you please join Bowie and me ;-)

Daily thoughts, musings & interests about anything (mostly horology) that currently makes my soul & grey matter tick.
