    Miles McKinney Funky Friday, January the 14th 2022.

    Hi all, apologies for my absence over the past few weeks, lack of access to PC and a change of phones left me a little lost I'm afraid. After I got home I was informed by my son that three of the people we'd been with last week, including my son had tested positive to Covid. So began a mad scramble to find a RAT test, which are now generally sold out everywhere over here, I managed to get one from the hospital in the end and, as it turned out I was negative, I'm assuming they contracted it after we'd left. In any case many thanks for the great work that's been done bringing data across from EoT. Here's some of my watches from this week.

    Scheidegg on Tuesday.

    Welcome back mate.
    Glad you're OK, and hope everyone else has had a relatively smooth ride through the lurgy.
    Two of my favourite steelers on show here and I'm not prepared to choose between them.

    Cheers mate, congrats on the ground source heat pump, 18 is a great achievement at -4, well done.

    Magnificent hard case week mate and, like you I'm having an each way bet.



    It's a dead heat between these two.

    Cheers mate, it is hard to choose between those two.
    The heating is even better as it's an air source heat pump, not ground source, so was much cheaper to install.

    Good to see you back Tim! As Scott already knows I acquired something watch related yesterday...

    A sign from one of the Birks chain of jewelry stores. Birks was among other things the sole importer of Eternas into Canada for about 3 decades. The sign may be fully functional and if I get it safely to my shop, both parts will fit inside and may get hooked up until an outdoor home is found for them.

    My week

    Monday, speaking of Eternas

    Cheers mate, can't argue with that choice.

    I'm picking the rarely seen 100m XL.

    A bit more variety from me this week, albeit all stratchproof, as winter finally starts to bite.
    Slightly off topic, I must say that the doubters who say that heat pumps cannot be successfully installed in old properties are completely wrong. Outside was -4⁰C when I got up this morning but it was a comfortable 18⁰C inside.

    Thanks Hank, congrats on another fine neon acquisition, I do hope you are able to get the neon park/museum up and running one of these days.
    I'm with Scott on the 100M XL this week, I agree with you , it's a great update of the Diastar, maybe their best, pretty sure mine gets more wrist time than all my other Rados.
