The GMT received a new thin font faded pepsi insert today and it suits it down to the ground, I think. Turquoise together with deep red is, in my humble opinion, the unrivaled way to go with a gilt dial and although the fat font would have been the correct insert for this watch, I think the numbers tend to be a bit over-powering and take the attention away from the gorgeous dial, where I think the focus really should be. Just a matter of taste but this is about perfect for me.
Original Omega Mesh are some of my absolute favourite watch bracelets. With their flat sided, brushed links and solid seat-belt type clasp they are also some of the most comfortable and on watches with shrouded lugs they look stunning! The only downside, in fact, is sizing them. The mesh links are not removable, unlike oyster bracelet links which are held in place via screw pins or push pins. Now if you’re like me, one thing that can really bug you is not being able to get the clasp of a bracelet centred correctly. Firstly it looks daft and secondly (and more importantly) the watch head will not stay centred on the top of your wrist if the clasp is not centred on the underside. Get the clasp right and the watch head will sit exactly where you want it which is smack in the middle of the wrist. Here’s how to do it!
I don’t know about anyone else but I sometimes need to motivate myself by means of a good challenge. I’ve always loved it when someone says to me: “That’s not possible, it can’t be done. Just forget it!” Guaranteed I will do whatever it takes to prove that person wrong and thoroughly enjoy the process!! So whilst lacking a little motivation/inspiration or maybe both, I took to the various photo forums to have a browse and just chill out. On the first forum I came across a thread where a few pro photographers were bemoaning the fact that their applications to become an iStockphoto Stock Photographer had been turned down for varying reasons. It seems that iStockphoto is the most stringent of the stock photo sites when it come to judging image quality so your images need to be pretty much spot on in order to gain approval from their administrators. Now I know pretty much nothing about stock photography but I thought this would be a decent challenge so I decided to give it a go. Here’s what happened..
