Thread: This just came in......less than an hour ago

    This just came in......less than an hour ago

    Ok....enough of my nonsense.

    I have been eyeing on some watches from this brand for quite a while. They are nice, and are good value for money. But nothing really push me over, so to speak.

    Then, last week, I got an email flyer from an online dealer, showing the few pieces that were on sale. A couple caught my attention, and so I started my search to find out more about each piece, and more specifically, how each looks. Mind you, I hardly buy anything online, nor anything without first seeing it in person. Even my 2 relatively affordable Seikos - I went to the dealers here before making the purchase online.

    Coincidentally, the day I logged in my order, "watchdaddy", put up a thread about any love for that watch. And, as expected, a lot of love for this watch. I know I made the right choice. So, here are some pics. Sorry, I am not good with writing reviews, and there are better ones out there. I will not do any injustice to the watch.















    Thanks for reading.

    Thanks, guys.

    I am still in honeymoon stage with this watch, but so far, loving it. If there was one thing that I wish for, a slightly flatter strap would be better. But, this is very subjective.

    Thanks! Problem is they really have quite a few pieces that are really good looking. Sometimes not an easy decision.

    Thanks! And that's what I try to do, though amateurish....

    Thanks, gentlemen. I am a sucker for gold hands, actually. And they have a version with gold indices and hands. But when I saw those images on the Internet with the blue hands, I know what I wanted.
