First we visited St Francis church,the oldest Christian church in India. The pews were the most comfortable we have ever sat in and the tiles were were wonderful Victorian encaustic ones,so much so that we had to take our shoes off to help protect them. A brief glimpse of the Dutch cemetery,sadly closed to protect it as was the Jewish cemetery. We now arrived at the Jewish quarter,this was once a thriving community but now only 7 Jews remain and only is under 80 and she sells the entrance tickets to the synagogue,the oldest in India. It has a wonderful clock which has different numerals depending on who is likely to see it. Towards the synagogue it is in Hebrew,in the street it is Latin and overlooking the old royal palace in the local language. A fourth face in Arabic towards the sea existed once but that has all gone a long time ago. The synagogue has a wonderful floor made of Chinese tiles all with a different picture from the willow pattern story. Just over the wall is the former royal palace,known as the Dutch palace as they renovated it in.
Though the Stingray (EM7K00CB) was first released a couple of months ago, we have now received three new models. While the EM7K0CB features Arabic numerals, the new models have bar indices. In the new models, the day is at the 9 o’clock and the date is at the 3 o’clock which may seem like an unconventional design. The case is all stainless steel with a nice polished bezel and contrasting brushed side wall. You’ll find the push-out crown at the four o’clock position (which is neat), and the date pusher at the three. The watch comes at a great size, about 42mm wide and 12mm thick. All Stingrays come on a rubber strap that is comfortable, which is especially important if you’re the type that wears your watch all day. Similar in size, thickness, and movement caliber, the distinguishing difference is seen in the case design. Three out of the four feature Arabic twelve and six at the top and bottom of the dial, while the rest are stainless steel bars. And contrary to the Stingray, the lumination is only seen to the hands and the tips of the indices. The bezel is not polished, but brushed like the rest of the case. While the Stingray comes in only white and black dials, there is more of a variety with the starfish.
