  • Off to NYC tomorrow...

    To spend some time with my daughter. Luckily the weather seems to have died down a bit, and I should be looking at highs of between 6 and 8 degrees whilst I'm there.

    I've been to NY so often that it feels like home, but this time I may just check to see whether Mike really exists

    I grew up (?) in NJ and took the bus to NYC a lot as a young teenager. Hung around in Hoboken watched the WTC being built.



    We used to nag our Dad to take us there since we could not buy caps for our cap guns in NJ, which still maintains its regressive firearms laws.

      I've been going regularly for decades now, and I used to find my way around using the Twin Towers as a landmark. It's still strange without them, although I'll certainly pop down to the memorial again and spare some thoughts for those who lost their lives.

        I remember going to NYC in the 80s on business when it was not terribly salubrious in certain areas...................

        Not been for several years now. Have a great time and look forward to the photos!

        Which watch are you taking - have you decided?

          Thanks very much, Michael, and I have actually. No Rolex, but...

          1) Aerospace Night Mission for every day wear
          2) Omega Railmaster for evenings when wearing black
          3) Zenith Chronomaster, for evenings when wearing brown.

          None of them too blingy and all likely to go unnoticed.

            not many people think that way. I'm the same. I always match things.

              Learning to Fly,
              If you are going to be sightseeing, I usually recommend these places:

              Croton Reservoir
              Flushing Meadow Swamp
              Washington Square Cemetery

              S.

                  Have you ever taken multiple rolexes to the US, Tony? I wonder what the reality of taking multiples rolexes is. Would they seize the watches or is that reserved for dealers only?

                    Breitling, Omega ad Zenith - all could be fakes. Shouldn't get impounded for those choices.

                      Interesting question. Certainly with a single Rolex (first a Datejust,, then a GMT) I never was stopped or had my wrist inspected by a US Customs officer. Must be that honest face again.

                      And although I have ordered watches from the States before, I have without exception been asked to pay the relevant duty.

                      If I were to take multiple Rolexes,. I would make sure I had all my purchasing paperwork for each watch, especially proof of paying customs duty from the US.

                        It's a daily routine for me, John!

                          Thank you for that. I've actually been here about 30 times now, and it's really more about spending time with my daughter than the usual sightseeing. I do like mooching around, though.
