Mechanical Symmetry, But To What End? Caption Competition #32
by Ian Skellern
Attentive readers may have already noticed “Roland Iten” engraved on this prototype device, a name synonymous with mechanical luxuries for gentlemen.

Please leave your fun, funny, or even serious suggestions in the comments below.
Congratulations to Dave McKenna for his caption about a meteorite-cased watch that was as epic in its depth as in its breadth and covers more topics than The Sunday Times. Do not miss this and all of last week’s entries at A Kryptonite Watch? Caption Competition #31.

As captain Brass wields his mighty peg leg over the bow he can’t help but contemplate his life as he adjusts his astrolabe, “was that whore in Tortuga on to something…” Perhaps this is what was meant by adjustable metal straps. Leathers be damned!
Thank you 🙂
Congratulations Jean, you are this weeks well deserving winner. Thanks for the entertaining and imaginative caption. I’m looking forward to the film!
