    Love the striking white on black color scheme. Oddly, the bezel and crown action were much nicer on my silver/white/orange SSW. The bracelet is nice, sort of a rattly vintage feel. Decent clasp, if a little thick. Timekeeping has been excellent, as expected; +1s since it arrived. Lume is good, I'm an early bird and it's been visible each morning when I wake. The pointed hands are much more useful than the boxed end style on the other Topper SSW I owned.

    Also, I got out the calipers and this watch is thinner than my previous SSW, around 12.6mm. I think that's because of the different caseback?

    Overall, very happy I got a chance to grab one.

    Yes, manual winding of these STP movements isn't particularly smooth on either of my Zodiacs. It is a striking piece, though, I'm glad you like it, too.

    Timekeeping is excellent, I can live with a bit of an agricultural feel to the winding

    777 for a day of Dad-Cab duty for rugby training and river swimming for my boy. Now cooking us both a roast beef dinner with a bottle of red open to help me while he is playing. Sometimes life just flows when my wife is away, as long as she’s not gone too long!

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.
