    I found this funny the sneaker room. I never thought of that. One of his belts has the Hermes of Paris logo on it looks like an H. I am wearing a Hermes watch with silver band as I type. I think the Theather room is much too small. Need a stag so people can perform if they want that. No indoor pool need one if you want to take a dip all year long even in the winter time kids love that. I did not notice if he had two staircases leading up from the great room. I always wanted that after seeing a movie of a New Orleans mansion with it. Then I put an elevator in the back if I had someone over who could not walk up the stair easy.

    I did not know they still make timex's self wind watches now. You shake your wrist and it winds. John Cameron Swazi something like that did the commercial for them. Mickey mantle did a commercial with it on in the outfield to show it took a licking but kept on ticking. I am a collector of a lot of things rare musical instruments, some art, movie memorabilia. Got the chair Bethia knocked over when she tried to get to Moses real mother's house before charlton Heston got their. Tried to get Ramese's war crown and sword when he went after Moses when he left Egypt. Someone beat me to it. My friends wanted a copy of the movie the purple gang made in the 50s. You could not find it for decades. Know you can buy it on DVD or from Amazon. I went crazy trying to find a print of that even got in contact with Robert Blake the star of it. He did not have it either. We saw that movie in 1959 when it came out in the movies. We all went to see it together. This kid younger then us comes out and tells us he was going to start a gang called the ny purple gang. We laughed it off but he actually did it Michael Meldish. About 3 or 4 years ago my brother and I and my best friend went to Rao's in East Harlem to eat. My friend tells me Meldish will be there. Well he never showed up someone clipped him that night in the Bronx. Then my friend asks me if I want to go to his funeral because I used to go out with his sister. I told him no I might not even go to your funeral when you die. He did not talk to me for months after that and I love that guy more then my own brother.

    Nick, mine is battery operate. I totally forgot about self-winding watches. I wonder if you can still buy self-winding watches. The last time I saw that movie was back in '69. I remember it because I was in Holland at the time and the Dutch announcer stated " The Purplender Gang" and had no clue that it pertains to a color purple.

    It was a bought street kid youth gang getting involved with adult gangs in Detroit booth legging.

    NY purples were Italian youth gang kids getting involved with the 5 mafia ny families on contract hits, heroin porn numbers gambling strip clubs etc. Meldish younger brother must have killed 80 people. His brother Michael big heroin mover they were sometimes called New York cities 6 family. They were also know as a crew who would work for any family who hired them. Their guys came from Harlem, Bronx from all 5 boroughs and they had a lot of associates who were minorities. They were equal opportunity employers. They were sick puppies.

    Yes you can still buy self wind watches but they never kept accurate time. I had one that yuri gargarian the Russian who was first man to be in space supposed wore in space. It is in a safety deposit box at my bank. Some of the things I have would be in the smithsonion today. I have a pair of tap shoes that a very famous tap star used for around 50 yrs. in the 80s she bought a new pair she was appearing on Broadway with Mickey Rooney back then. I became friends with her secretary and acquired that original pair. Had three strad violent. One was worth close to a million in the 80s. Now it would be worth 5 million.
    I like the solar watches they are cheap no winding, no battery just solar power. My wife wears hers a lot never have to set them or wind or replace the battery. I like the Rado for everyday.
