Not in all of it; but it's more "L'art pour le principe de l'art" It's translated into English as "art for art's sake"; and found on the MGM movie logo above the roaring lion. But their Latin grammar is incorrect. the dative is before the objective and MGM has it reversed, I guess because it sounds better. Latin 101 Best, Joseph

I thought it was either wine or blood (vampire wine :-) ) The colour looks more like blood though Joseph

I won't pretend to know anything about the featured wine, although I am always happy to be educated. In truth, I already received an education about the 1912 you photographed. It was not until recently, during the past 6-9 months, that I came to appreciate this beautiful simple watch. I suppose it should have come as no surprise since I seem to have not met an Historiques that I do not like. I did not know that you had one of these 1912s. This is a pleasant surprise. Have you had it a long time? Do you wear it often? Best regards, Robert

Hi Robert and thanx for your kind thoughts. Wines are like watches and can be almost as expensive. However they don't last nearly as long ;-( Most unfortunately I sold it shortly after Alex sold his. I wish I still had it and I'll bet Alex would like to have his. Regards, Miki
So, true for both wine and watches...

...Nothing Gold Can Stay [I hope I recall this poem correctly] Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. by Robert Frost Best, Miki. Robert
