new arrival/ arrivals..AGNES_B

Post by domecurb on Fri Sep 15 2017, 13:12

arrived this morning from France after a long RoyalMail delay [ 8 day london to Glasgow Mad ]

5 brand new and working Agnes-B bullhead chronographs, these were made for the Agnes-B fashion brands ages ago by Seiko in Japan so very well made and IMO quite attractive, downside......there are no bracelets for them and i cant find any so will need to custom make straps for them, but they should look quite good on leather



it would seem they are form the 90's

look at the price Shocked

Someone will be busy making the straps.

At least you can do a proper time and study job on the process with all those chronographs about Very Happy

Fantastic looking watches and it must be a bit of a record being able to buy five identical watches at the same time. cheers

Given the design of the case customisation of a strap would seem to be the only option. While a section of the strap could be cut to fit I would be at a bit of a loss, with it not having lugs, with how to secure the strap via a pin.

No doubt there are ways to do this and it will be interesting to see how you get on. They would certainly look great on the wrist. Very Happy

Sorry if it's a daft question, did you pay that price for one or the lot?

They are very unusual looking cases especially where the top and bottom come to a point . I like the layout of the dials
