Thread: Oh Mister Postman! Oh FuzzyB!!

  1. #1

    Oh Mister Postman! Oh FuzzyB!!

    With this entry to FuzzyB's amazingly generous multiple-watch Giveaway #1 I won a Luch 2209, for me to give to a watchless friend of mine who has been impressed by my thin little Soviet manuals, and has been looking around for one with nice interesting numerals

    The postman gave me a parcel rather larger than I was expecting....and in it I found TWO soviet watches! The Luch 2209 AND ALSO a Wostok 2214 COMPLETELY UNEXPECTEDLY!!





    I'm going to be seeing my friend and his wife this evening. As well as these two watches I'll take along these two other straps as well, so that he's got all the choice he could possibly want





    FuzzyB has approved of my plan to let him try on "my" watch and then if he likes it, say, well actually, its for you....but now I've got to make it worth with two watches! This *will* be fun

    That's six hours away and I can't WAIT! I'll be sure to take photos and report on how it all goes I wonder if I should let his wife in on the secret first, so we can the maximum fun out of this....

    I'm very glad the Wostok has a date window, or my heart would be very heavy passing it on The grey dial is a beautiful sunburst, the gold hands and indices really stand out, and even by the very high Soviet standards these are cool numerals

    Presents in the post - Good.... Unexpected presents in the post - Even better
    Happy for you and your friend
    If I praise Brian any more, I'll start to seem like a sycophant (I like that word) .
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    very nice and generous both of you. Love's me a wossie and I had my eye on the round case luch but could not decide between that and the pillow case luch so I put it in the hands of fate (well Fuzzy b ) and went mystery and I was not disappointed I can tell you. so hope the friends happy that he's has got a Russian at last
