Feb 18th 2009 9:29PM I bet he is really worried about losing a $2.5 million home in the US, especially considering he has $8000 million under the mattress in his "second home".
Feb 9th 2009 7:47PM Most of these companies were in trouble well before the current economic troubles surfaced. Circuit City, Linens & Things and Sharper Image have all been in a downward trend for years. Their respective direct competitors: Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond and Brookstone- should become much stronger. And in theory should actually help correct the economic problems we see today.
Feb 6th 2009 2:57PM I really like Jean Richard watches, my favorite it definitely this one: http://professionalwatches.com/2008/11/jean_richard_chronoscope_mv_ag.html#more
Feb 2nd 2009 11:11PM Macy's has over 850 stores, the 11 stores being closed were the weakest performers. One of the 11 stores is in Hawaii too. Not one of their core markets. 4% of their workforce is relatively small. Macy's has a great website, a great assortment and most importantly they own or hold contracts to some of the best retail real estate in the country.
They will be fine, they are just trimming the fat.
Feb 2nd 2009 5:42PM @RD-- yes the Seamaster comes in quartz too, however none of the James Bond models do. All five "James Bond" watches are self-winding mechanical watches, not quartz. Here is the section of Omega's site the references this:http://www.omegawatches.com/index.php?id=217
Feb 2nd 2009 2:35PM James Bond actually wears the Seamaster with the automatic movement, Caliber: 2500.

Jan 29th 2009 11:23PM Yes the minute repeaters from AP are excellent, but the greatest from SIHH 2009, I think not. How about the new Jules Audemars with AP Escapement? This mechanical marvel runs at 43,200 vph, which is equivalent to 6hz. Translation: very accurate, very exclusive, very expensive. It does so with no lubrication and is considered to be a huge advance in watchmaking. This technology will be used in many future mechanical watches. It took them years to develop this movement.
This my friend is the greatest offering from AP this year, chronometrically speaking.
Jan 24th 2009 8:16PM The Zuiko prime lenses are phenomenal and worth paying for this over the, ok, E30.
