Default Just in! Straton Speciale

Been looking for one on the used market for a while now and one finally popped up and a "not flipper gouging" price. Basically new in box even!
Not sure if in digging the way the rectangle case looks on my wrist though...
This might turn into a catch and release

Nice looking watch. I think Frans has one too if memory serves correctly.

Looks good on the wrist based on the photograph. That said, you have to like it enough to keep it and wear it

Man does that baby have "vintage" written all over it... I've only had one watch with that shape. Never quite bonded with it. Just recently traded it to someone who loves watches in that shape. Takes all kinds I guess. Congrats and enjoy anyway. Good luck making a tough decision.

Wow, that really is terrific WM, and I hope that it starts to feel
better on the wrist. Because it looks awesome from here !

Like Forza says. it has such a cool vintage way about it. But
then really doesn't look like any one watch you can think of.
Just love the TV style case, and extraordinary attention to
detail everywhere from the dial, to case, crown, and pushers
on this one. ..Holy cow, HUGE congrats sir !!!

I don't. I imagine its only a few years old tops. The guy I bought it from got it new from straton, wore it a few times but didn't really like it.

I ordered mine through a Kickstarter campaign late 2017 and received it on 16 July 2018. It's just over 15 months old.

I also like the vintage look, if my opinion counts please keep it and wear it, it really looks good on your wrist.

One of those watches that makes me look creepy because it causes me to stare at some dude's wrist. Definitely a head-turner.
And that caseback is wild!
