Friday 7/2/14 - Job Hunting, Back To School & This Week's Wristwatch

Had the watch on a modified NATO strap. I removed the standard tang-type buckle and replaced it with a folding clasp made by Oris. It works like an aeroplane seatbelt clasp. Makes it faster to put on and take off.

I think the only drawback to this arrangement is that the strap loosens a little throughout the day. Or maybe I'm just imagining things. At any rate, I swapped this strap over to a standard NATO on Wednesday night.

Thursday afternoon
While waiting for my daughter to finish school, temperatures got a little high in my car. When we got home, I peeled the seat-belt away from my chest.

Yep, the Omega Planet Ocean served me well this week.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Great watches as always! Don't let the HR knock backs get you down. Sometimes you just have to float a bit in the sea of angst before you spot an island.

    Keep up the good writing though.

  2. Very nice watch. Best of luck on your job search. Sooner or later you will get a positive response or two. Enjoy your pizza.

  3. Thank-you, gents. All one can do is try.

  4. Enjoying the writing and watches too.
    Hang in there. Hope you find your job soon.

  5. @Bazeer, thank-you. I had a look at Piz Gloria. Great site you have!

    @ Rob, that's it exactly.

    1. It's an Oris 32 20 40 folding clasp that I got back when I worked in the industry at a watch boutique.
