Shoes & Watches & Bonsai

What I like: fine watches, fine shoes and fine bonsai. In no particular order.
Quasi-legal note: I do not own most of the photos I post. I hope you can forgive me.

Bonsai Watches Shoes

The best of both worlds: (again) a utilitarian rattrapante function with the looks of a dress watch. This Gallet Multichron (from Wikipedia, of all places) has it all.

Absolute killer Breitling. Although it looks like your average two register panda chronograph it has something extra: a rattrapante function. The second big second hand reveals that this watch can simultaneously time two events.
How cool is that? (The answer is ‘Very cool’ or ‘Insanely cool’)

Looks like my profile pic. Great minds think alike. Or are just taking pics of their shoes while sitting down.

Shiny long-wings. For that extra #menswear I added a portion of selvedge and a touch of dramatic lighting.

The many faces of Japanese apricot bonsai
This time a very clear “mother-and-daughter” twin trunk style. One trunk is clearly bigger than the other, without overpowering it. It’s overall image is more subtle than usual for ume bonsai because of the soft curves in the trunk and the lack of deeply fissured bark. 
The lack of flowers can be explained by the fact that this photo was taken before the tree was exhibited. By the time it’s being shown to the jury it would be in full flower.

The many faces of Japanese apricot bonsai
An unusual twin trunk style. Instead of a clear hierarchy (big trunk, small trunk) the two trunks grow and bloom in harmony. The rugged bark and seemingly random branches are complemented with a chunky antique Chinese pot and table.
