    New Arrival

    Earlier in the year I mentioned in a couple of threads a shopping trip to London for MrsO. Well my birthday has now arrived and what she picked for me has been revealed.


    Tangente 38mm. My smallest diameter case but with the slim bezel fills my wrist nicely.
    On the web all the pictures seem to show the hands much bluer but on me in the light here they come out almost completely black.

    She went to Wempe and I gave a list of possibles from Nomos, Jungans and Wempe but with the idea that she would select one for me as a gift . Risky I know but I think she did well.

    lyonk - not belated bang on time - thanks

    Lovely. Happy Birthday and congratulations.

    In regards to the blued hands, they do tend to look darker most of the time, but one day the sun will hit it at just the right angle and you'll catch a brilliant blue glitter out of the corner of your eye.

    I am seeing more glints of blue with the fluorescent lights at work - just when you catch the right angle
