Thread: My Luch-y day

  1. #1

    My Luch-y day

    Fresh off the boat from Moscow. Yet another re-sizing project. This strap needs at least 2 more holes to close in on my puny left wrist. Perhaps I just need to order a new ("short") strap?

    The "one-hand" idea is growing on me.

    yeah the luch ant to bad and the price seems reasonable seen them about 30 ish mark give or take a fiver was thinking about them the other week not sure of the gold dial one's but the black dials and the white dials one's do appeal the silver is great but got a lot of silver dials lol but saying that got a lot of white and black dials to haha think I would go for the white dial myself If I can get an older one all the better nothing wrong with the new one's just like the old one's more

    I was right - 2 more holes punched and the strap is perfect. Well...it's still waving in the breeze - but it's secure on my wrist and feels comfortable.
    Everything else I own is "pre-owned" - so "new, in hanger card with Russian instruction sheet" is a welcome addition - AND the price was considerably less than 30. The only downside was the wait for RussianPost to get it to me. But, I'm used to that by now.

    Oh...BTW...I'm in love with my brand new hole puncher. Buy the right tool and life is so very much simpler! Alas, I now own nearly as many watch TOOLS as watches.

    One issue...it's a bit difficult to tell if the watch is actually running! The motion of the hand is quite smooth, though!

    yeah I find sometimes the cost of the post cost more then the watch haha just bought one a while back won the bid for $9.99 but the del was like $18 lol it depend I though it was a new one which as I say are about 30 ish some are cheaper but you got to add in the post cost where the ones I was looking at was free post but sounds like you got a good price on that one so bonus

    I keep my finger hovering over the buy button on these... I just can't decide... Black dial or white dial? 'Silver' or Zirconium?

    The Zirconium is moving up on me, I'm just concerned it'll be a bit too 'gold' for my taste. But all I mostly have are stainless/silver plated watches, might do me some good to branch out a bit.

    May I ask what seller you used?

    Thanks! I'm familiar with the all the usual places to buy Russian watches, but the Luch one-handers seem to be an 'eBay affair' and am wondering which source is the best. I've heard a lot of good about the seller woodhome25.
