What I am wearing today (1 March 2012)

Today I am attired in a micro-check woolen suit, white linen french-cuff shirt, a woolen tartan tie in blue/green/red colors, red pocket square, and black cap-toed oxford shoes. Today’s watch is a vintage manual winding Camy from 1960. In those days the price of a similar watch would have been around Rupees 40-50 only (roughly US$ 20 in 1960).

In the realm of mechanical watches, pedigree depended on “number of jewels.” For example, this watch has 17 Jewels. The watch posted yesterday had 25 jewels, etc. The other factor that contributed to value was number of complications, such as, date, date, stop watch, etc.
