    It bugs me that I can't think of a good joke confusing etymology and entomology.

    Etymonline is a superb resource - I probably use it more often than any other search engine when finding out what words mean.

    Said astronauts are also not idiots though - it's got basically nothing in common with what they're flying in!

    Or your phone.

    I don't understand it if that's its only functionality. I guess it makes your watch have a bit of extra function, but at the cost of a very cheap looking strap.

    Is the zaratsu polishing on all models or only on those that they mention it on?

    They're soon coming out with a new Felix Foudrouyante jumping second at 38.5mm and thinner than the current 36mm version - should be pretty special.

    That movement is gorgeous. Less keen on the front though, and I think that's caused by the odd centre links that remain for the straps? The photo of the blue on blue makes those links look very...

    No other dealers that I'm aware of - it's best to email him and ask what models he has. His website is terrible and he freely admits it on his home page.
