typecasts and typewriter reviews
Very interesting. Judging by the paperwork in the watchmaker's hands, he could be working on a Jaeger-Le Coultre Calibre 489, produced from 1950 to 1958 for their Memovox models. Beautiful watches, but pricey.
"Quite." M grunted, "Q will provide you with one. Don't lose it."
but seriously I think that's one of the best comments I've ever had.
It almost seemed pointless of M to tell Bond not to lose any equipment. 007 had a nasty habit of not paying attention to those orders. Bless him. Oh, and "Casino Royale" was published sixty years ago today!
Such a beautiful city. And I don't think I've ever seen a classroom with so much concentration. Ever. And Teeritz... You got that from the drawing? I am seriously impressed.
Elementary, my dear Kernaghan, but don't get too impressed. "Cal 489" is written along the left side of the page he's holding. After 12 years of selling the brand, I knew that 489 is a famous watch movement, or Calibre, that was manufactured by Jaeger-Le Coultre for a number of years. While I can recognise some watch movements based on a drawing, alas, this was not one of them. If you really want to be impressed, look up the Jaeger-Le Coultre Calibre 101. It's a mechanical watch movement that takes up half the space of your thumbnail.
Very interesting images, I especially like the streetcar photo. Adwoa should see this post.
Thant's a mighty fine book. I wonder if any fellows went to typing class. Wouldn't it be wonderful if cities still had all the neat street cars.
Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
