    paid in full

    I pre-ordered this watch today. It's the one on the left, the "no date" with the black dial, a LE of 300 pieces. Delivery is planned for the end of the year...

    Like the semi-coin edge on the bezel. Very unique looking.

    They used the VIS wz.35 gun as inspiration for their design. The rubber on the caseback is the rubber grip of the gun for example...

    Not sold on the font but as a whole it's a pretty nice looking package. Clean brown dials are too few between. Like olive as well. Might just have to look these up.

    The pronunciation of Wrocław defeats most non-Poles. It's 'Vrut-swav', with a short 'u' like the 'u' in 'push'.

    My father is half Polski. They have a extreme complicated language, actually, all Eastern European languages are complicated. You know the place Plzn in Tshjecia? Its pronounced "plie-zenn-ja"
