Macy Carr – fiery fox and wearer of exquisite timepieces.  She embodies the Scots Gaelic axiom: “Bha Dia airson gum b ’fhiach beatha a bhith beò, agus mar sin thug e cinn ruadh dhuinn.”

God wanted life to be worth living, so He gave us red heads.

Timepiece: Period oversized Waltham wristwatch

Completely original mid century men’s solid 14k yellow gold Jules Jurgensen wristwatch with sleek, minimalist/retro design; fitted with genuine crocodile strap and offered in factory double-boxes with guarantee booklet. Breathtaking!

For the poodle who has everything: In the early ‘50s Hammer Schlemmer offered a gold dog collar donning a Swiss watch. This photo was taken by famed photographer Yale Joel in November of 1953 and featured in LIFE magazine.

Hailing from one of America’s most exhilarating eras, this men’s mid-century Waltham features a highly stylized case with “sunburst” lugs – perfect for a windswept convertible ride. Circa 1959
