    Another non-round, dunno why I like 'em . . .

    GP's Vintage 1945 XXL. Been eyeing this one for awhile but was a bit concerned about the fit on my smallish wrist. Thankfully it works, partly due to the curve of the case I think. Would have preferred a manual movement but at least it doesn't have a date function. The beauty of the blue dial cannot be captured via pics (at least not my pics), it is gorgeous . . .

    I'm so glad you finally got this GP!

    You know how much I like this model. It looks great on your wrist so, no more worries about the case size. Enjoy this new watch for many, many years!

    Cheers,
    C

    Looks great! I've always been attracted to square/rectangular cases. There is a B&M chrono that catches my eye every time I see it. Should add one at some point. Congrats on the pick up looks real sharp!

    Congrats! Glad that you finally picked this up. Had my hands on the other models as well (Moonphase, A silver dial of your model) and i really liked the fit and finish. The movement is also very smooth. Enjoy it!

    , quite unusual.
    Would have preferred a manual movement but ...
    But nothing ! , it looks like a very nicely decorated movement.

    If you're thinking of the B&M Hampton, these often have steep discounts in the sales at Jomashop. They currently have the copper (which I think is lovely) and white dial versions at $1980 (60% off). Unfortunately the black dial is not at this price ($3399, 31% off) but these prices change often.

    Great looking watch. I love the size, dial layout (small seconds) and furniture (hands and numerals) and the lovely movement (I am sucker for exhibition casebacks). Well done!
