The Stockdale Watch—The Story of JFK’s Omega

 photo WATCHBUYERS-11-1_zpsc1678409.jpg

President John F. Kennedy is still one of the most enduring icons of your 20th century. Perhaps it was his youth or his good looks or his disarming charm. Perhaps it had been his beautiful wife and adorable young kids. Whatever the reason, he still captures our imagination fifty years following that tragic day in Dallas in November 1963. Anything he did, anything he stated, anything he touched, it appears to be to fascinate us. We know his wife Jacqueline-or Jackie-gave him a pricey alligator briefcase as a wedding gift in 1953. We don’t know what sort of wedding rings the couple exchanged (that was long before wooden wedding rings became the big hit they are now). But, the topic of this short piece replaced another gift from Jackie-a wristwatch whose maker is unknown at this time. There’s no doubt about the kind of the watch that replaced Jackie’s gift though. It had been an Omega.

JFK as well as the Grant Stockdale Connection

President Kennedy’s Omega was a gift from long time friend, Grant Stockdale. Stockdale was a Florida friend and businessman of Florida Senator George Smathers. All three were veterans of the Pacific campaign in WWII where Smathers and Stockdale had served from the Marines. Kennedy had been a young Navy PT-Boat commander who lost his boat, PT-109, in the night action when it was cut by 50 percent by a Japanese destroyer. His courageous actions in saving his crew after the sinking made him a war hero and helped get him elected to Congress in 1946. Stockdale campaigned after the war for his friend Gorge Smathers within his bid to the US Senate. It was mutual friend Smathers who first introduced Stockdale to Kennedy, who by that time was really a US Senator himself. Stockdale and JFK became fast friends.

The “Stockdale Watch”

In 1960, before he was elected President, Stockdale gave his friend JFK a sophisticated Omega Ultra Thin wristwatch in 18 carat gold. He rather optimistically had the following inscription engraved on the back:

“President of the United States John F. Kennedy from his friend Grant”

President Kennedy evidently loved the wore and view it often, including during his famous inauguration ceremony. It was captured there for many-time by a LIFE magazine photographer. It’s easily seen on his left wrist. First Lady Jackie Kennedy wrote Stockdale a gracious many thanks note, complimenting his choice of the “thinnest most elegant wristwatch.” She added that upon opening the gift, JFK had immediately stripped off of the “chunky” one then on his wrist-a gift from her-and replaced it with the new, thinner watch. Kennedy always created a point of showing his friend the watch was still on his wrist whenever they met, and began calling it the “Stockdale watch.” This historically important Omega is now on display at the Omega Museum in Switzerland.

It’s true that girls have different taste for many things including guys but, there are still some things that all girls like. There might not be a perfect guy, but many guys are perfect in the eyes of the girls. Why? Well most probably because they know what the girls like most. It’s not some secret actually. If you want to leave a good impression and make girls like you then, here are some advices that you should take a look at:

1. Be confident. Being confident is very, very important if you want to leave a good impression.

2. Be romantic. Bring flowers on a date, kiss her on the cheek and stuff like that leaves very good impression as-well.

3. Smart. Being smart is attracting many girls.

4. Successful. Well this is not as easy as it seems. You should be dedicated on yourself and make sure you are good at what you do.

5. Helpful. Help everyone as much as you can. Girls find it attractive when guys help someone that is in need for help for no reason.

6. Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. Make yourself better than anyone. Make yourself as good as you can.

Good luck !

Roar – Katy Perry (Boyce Avenue feat. Bea Miller cover)

I admit, when it comes to my musics I prefer these pop songs like what does Korean musics has to offer. Because pop are the usual catchy and at the same time, it does sounds heavenly to ears, right? I know most of you will agree on me here. However though, this recently. I’ve started to loved some westerner artists and their type of musics to offer. And one of them was this band called Boyce Avenue. Actually, Boyce Avenue has a same genre to Kpop because they’re paying some balled slow rock and pop songs too and one of their cover, together with the young lady named Bea Miller, got my attention which the Roar of Katy Perry. Check the video on top for you to see on how awesome these guys are..

I hope too, that they put an good trumpet stands touched on the sound arrangement for it to be sound more lovely to ears. ehhe just my opinion though.. Okay, that’s it for now, dont forget to enjoy the video on top.

All About Boots

 photo Military-Boots-for-men-brown_zps3a9083c2.png

I am a sucker for boots. I have Motorcycle boots, Chelsea, Chukka, and Cowboy boots. Name it and I have it. Although the first thing I notice when I am shopping for a pair is the way it looks, I actually do not buy on a whim. There are several things that I take into consideration such as how comfortable it fits and if its price is worth every penny. I also keep in mind a couple of “fashion rules” to avoid while shopping for a new pair like for instance wearing Chelsea boots with baggy clothes. Another example would be not wearing Motorcycle boots with anything but jeans.

Since most of what I own are expensive, I go to great lengths to properly care for them. The materials in boots are some of the finest available so for you to be able to wear them for a long time, it is essential to perform maintenance regularly. Cleaning your boots to remove grime and dust and applying a quality leather conditioner are critical in helping preserve the leather in your boots. Be wary though when caring for your boots since many leathers differ and the process for proper care can be dissimilar even though the steps may be easy.
