Latest purchase arrives next week.

Post by SeikoJohn on Thu Mar 29 2018, 17:03

Came across the chance to buy something special today I would not say it is my grail watch but it is a brand that I have admired for some time and thought I would never have the chance to own one.

It will be arriving Wednesday/Thursday next week yup thanks Mr Easter bunny for the delay in delivery.

42mm in size and has an auto movement the most obvious clue I can think of is it is not a snickers bar.

Sticky is ok as it comes on a silicon strap so easy to clean

It is not a grail watch but I would say it is about as close to a grail as I will get. I never thought I would own one and am so happy that I do.

I am that pleased with it that I mentiones to Domecurb that I have no intention of purchasing any more watches for quite a while .... He said I would own another within 5 weeks lol!

Wow beautiful and I love the way it looks like the dial is deeply recessed from the crystal, just one minor point in my opinion change the black on white date to white on black, but that’s only me, enjoy your new purchase
