Thread: INCOMING: over the Rainbow

  1. #1

    INCOMING: over the Rainbow

    On this Glorious 25th of May, I offer a sprig of lilac to - Arriving realSoonNow...offering New Hope...

    These are seller's photos from the listing (the wrist shot - not shown) hints that the seller may be "one of us...one of us" - feel free to speak up! [and thanks for the lovely photos].

    Close examination shows a very nice Seiko leather strap with unknown buckle. I'm looking for advice (and sources) for an appropriate Zenith bracelet OR strap (with deployment), keeping in mind my puny 6 1/4 left wrist. My Ebel 134 and 137 both sport original equipment bracelets (SS w/gold, and SS, respectively). I'm thinking of these as a triptych.

    Don't forget your towel!

    Indeed - the rainbow bit confused me! I prefer the white dial - very nice, Mr S!

    The mustard dial Rainbow was on my list for a very long time. Your Zenith is like the understated brother of the Daytona; it's a watch everyone would like to hangout with.
