Taking my father's, father's pocket watch in to be weighed and flogged off by my e-bayer this week. Got my eye on a smart, black washing machine, Bosch don't come cheap, so need to raise some additional wedge. Of course I'm pulling your double Albert. I wouldn't dream of selling off the major historic and significant heirloom inherited from dear Donald Frederick. Hope to get it going, put it on a chain and start wearing it with pride. Possibly some too Berluti's too.

Been recommended Russell Talerman (click) by my editor Mr.Gurney at QP magazine (click), so there I shall go. Fingers crossed he'll be able to kick start the old piece. Will also be visiting Hatton Garden to search for a vintage double Albert watch chain or similar to dangle across the front of my various vests. That should raise one's game a trifle at LC:M, no? Will be taking my jewellery advisor Stretch hopefully. Always best to take a locale guide for these occasions, don't ya think? For now, simply must slip off. I've just got a lead on a De Dietrich DL 1400 (click) going for a song..

Stubbs out.
