dinner and he had this watch on his wrist (not the exact same watch just the same model) and I could not keep my eye's off it. I knew they only made 50 of them and assumed they were all sold out so I was hoping (very naive) that one would come up on the secondary market.
I found out a couple of weeks ago that 8 of these puppies were heading to the U.S., so got on the phone calling around. I had heard that 7 of the 8 were accounted for and found out where the last one was heading. Fortunately I was in the city where the AD was located so paid him a visit and he confirmed that they were getting one in and that it was not sold. Long story short we were able to come up with an agreeable price and I walked out a very happy man. Now all I had to do was wait for it to arrive. Well today was the day and could not be happierI love the clean simplicity to the dial though do wish the day/date windows were larger and possibly located higher. Other than that for me its perfect. It will go well with its little brother.
I hope to write up a report on it soon and would like to also do a comparison between it and the PP 5970 but for now just want to enjoy it.
