What I'd Buy Myself

Okay, one thing you gentle readers might not be aware of is the effort put forth by marketing and pr departments to put watches in front of you in so-called holiday shopping guides.  And for the past 9 years I've had to politely decline to construct such a thing.  

But despite what some of my peers would have you believe, I am not Krampus, the Grinch or Scrooge.  So I thought, rather than serve up what gets forwarded to me, I'd do the digging and let you know what I personally would buy for myself.

First up would be the Chronoswiss Chronograph Skeleton.

Now they do make an absolutely beautiful gold version, but I have to remind myself that I am a former English teacher currently managing a non-profit Adult Education program to help immigrants get established in the US.  Translation?  I have to live within the reality of my means ; )

Chronoswiss is a brand that I have a lot of time for.  John Keil of Watch Gauge fame put in some serious work for them, and the current team is a nice bunch as well.  Moreover?  They aren't trying to be anyone other than themselves.  

So that's the first up.  Stay tuned!
