|The Throgmorton - I wants it BAD|
I don't tend to wear a watch, preferring instead to rely on clocks around the house if I need to get anywhere. And let's face it, I don't go anywhere!
My last surviving watch gave up the ghost after I accidentally smashed the crystal glass whilst working in the garden.
Juno gave me instructions earlier this year that I *needed* to get a watch and that she would spring for one as a birthday gift.
I perused page after page of watches - all nice in their own way, but nothing that really struck me as MINE. Then THIS one caught my eye.
It's made by J & T Windmills of London and is just what I'm looking for in a watch.
The blurb on the Windmills site says:
Sadly, the price made Juno a bit dizzy and, much as she loves me, I was instructed to rethink my watch wish list and select something around the £50 mark.
The Throgmorton is £395.00......
From time to time I visit the site and lust after it - the roman numerals, the silver finish, the off-set winding bezel... I still feel that one day, this watch will be mine ;-).
Today while I was rootling around the intertubes looking for a decent picture of it (impossible! - J&T Windmills, you should at least allow someone a decent sized jpg - a blog with greater influence than mine might actually help you sell a Throggy) I noticed that it CAN be purchased from some internet suppliers for £325.00. Unfortunately, that's still quite a bit out of of my league.
I had suggested to Tertarus that if he bought me this watch, I'd be VERY pleased. But when he saw that it was a wind up - he just laughed in my face. Then I told him the price and he laughed his way over to the computer and switched it off.....
But a cat can look at a queen.....
PS - I have no idea why it's all gone into double spacing...I can't seem to fix it either!
See you tomorrow - hope you're all having a wonderful weekend ;-)
