Honestly think you are still being good DubyaDubya !

If not great !!! ..I mean imagine going after a compressor
style case watch from one of the high end brands?! Or maybe a
vintage model?!!

You are actually being super smart, and sensible. Congrats, or
rather HUGE congrats ahead of time !!!

Wow, a real beauty there! Very nice!

And, thanks, I don't feel so bad now, for just ordering this ahahaha.....

I was being so good...-79d9f059fecd3f40ee3c2195c86e86b7p-1-.jpg

Went with a leather strap instead, but may order a black rubber one as well, once it arrives. Maybe a Hirsch Urbane.

Was actually writing up a new question to post -- will be up shortly -- and, in the midst of it, was pondering bronze divers....made the mistake of asking myself, "Hmmm, I wonder what bronze divers are out there, right now, with a fully lumed bezel?"

Was just bookmarking a special edition Davosa, and looking at Chris Ward's model (no lume on the bezel there) but came across that micro, from Tsao Baltimore, for a third of the price! Could not resist! Will have to wait a few months to get it, but definitely seems worth it. Have been wanting a bronze diver for an age now, and keep missing out on other micros that have released them, so pulled the trigger right away.

I was being so good...-final-38-1-.jpg

I was being so good...-52522638_1501007003368438_5686800453845647360_n.jpg

Sapphire crystal, sapphire bezel, sapphire exhibition case back, Miyota 9015 high beat movement, 48h PR, 300m WR, marine grade bronze case, good heavens, these micros can make some stuff! This lume is nuts!

I was being so good...-4lwhrjykqfqfxleiqf2x_a863f00be3d50f33d9fe2f87acdca806original.jpg

Thanks guys, I'm super excited and can't wait for it! I will definitely take pics ad nauseum when it arrives. It just looks like nothing else I own and I imagine it could've been Bond's beater when he had his Rolex Subs in for service.

With this beauty, it definitely seems like one of those times when
the watch surpasses all expectations DubyaDubya !!!

Just the way Dan Henry seems to perfect every detail amazes when
you think about it. ..From the exceptional case, and dial, to even that
strap. It's like you went back in a time machine to pick up this stunner !

Boy oh boy, hope you enjoy ! ..Big congratulations once again !!!
