My mom and I visited Minneopa State Park (located near Mankato, Minnesota) today with our puggles. The park contains Minneopa Falls, which is what we went there to see. Unfortunately, my mom tripped on the way to the falls, causing her to get scraped and covered with mud. Such is the case when walking in flimsy sandals with a large bag and two dogs pulling on you. Nevertheless, my mom looks good in the photo below, and it was certainly a fun adventure for us and the dogs.
I’m listing my brother Marc’s drum set on Craigslist sometime next week. Click on any photo to see the high-resolution file.
Minutes ago, I received a 2018 Oris Aquis Date with a green dial from Leslie Gold Watch Co. in Los Angeles. This is my second watch from Leslie Gold, my first being a Tissot T-Tempo I got in 2011. Leslie Gold, by the way, offered an amazing price on this authentic Oris watch.
The Oris Aquis Date line was updated in 2017, but this green dial version was just released in 2018. It has the reference 01 733 7730 4157-07 8 24 05PEB.
My initial thought upon seeing the watch was, There must be some mistake! I could’ve sworn the dial was black, as you may also think after seeing the photo below. But upon closer inspection, I realized it was in fact the right watch. The green is just very subtle and is only really apparent when it reflects light. When it does hit the light just right, it has a very beautiful, deep green, sunray effect.
Many people reading this are probably aware of this watch’s similarity to the Rolex Submariner “Hulk,” which also has a very beautiful green sheen when it reflects light. While I haven’t seen the “Hulk” in person (it is, after all, impossible to find on display at any authorized dealer because of the high demand), I do think this green dial Oris Aquis is probably a fair comparison.
Now, since the title of this post says “Unboxing,” I do, of course, have photos (this is a photo blog, after all). See the seven photos below.
The next photo was taken with a cheap Samsung smartphone on an overcast day.
Finally, here’s a photo that accentuates the green color of the dial. This photo was taken with the same Samsung smartphone on a sunny morning.
Minnehaha Park contains Minnehaha Falls and is located in Minneapolis.
I took this photo of my mom and our puggles on Lake Minnetonka in Excelsior, Minnesota, today.
This is my first photo with actual edits in GIMP (previously, I had only done cropping and straightening). I set the Levels to Auto, because otherwise this shady photo looked too dark.
