Look who’s home! Tintin is back from the dead. I bought this watch in the Netherlands in 1996. Tintin fans will recognize this as a scene from “The Blue Lotus.” When I first bought the watch, the blue tint was intense. Sunlight has washed it out over the years, but it’s still beautiful, I think. I haven’t been able to wear this watch for a couple of years, because something went wrong with it mechanically.
Ah, but I sent it recently to one of this here blog’s readers, a master horologist who own’s Anthony’s Clocks in Durham, NC. She made Tintin work again, and sent him home in fine condition. I’m so happy! And I’m very pleased indeed to recommend Anthony’s to you for your horological needs. We mail-ordered an unusual clock from Anthony’s for a Christmas gift for our son Matthew, who is going through a horology phase now, and it was his favorite present. In my experience, you can trust Anthony’s to do excellent work, quickly, and to deal with you honestly. Those people have proper theology and geometry, is what I’m saying. Sorry if this sounds like a commercial, but I’m so happy to have this watch back, and I’m always pleased to tell others when I’ve had a good experience with business.
