    I’ve been after one of these fully lumed Citizens for a few years now but the prices for them second hand on eBay had gotten out of control. I was able to snag a brand new one from an Italian website for a really nice price and it just showed up yesterday. I immediately took it off the stock rubber strap and onto a nice seatbelt Zulu singlepass.

    I know, right? The new "great white" Seikos are incredible, but I already have 3 turtles and a samurai.

    Very nice! I had the black dial version of that. It had a deep, inky black dial, was extremely comfortable, and kept perfect time. Loved it.

    One quirk, the 12 o'clock marker looks like a pair of underpants. Now that you've seen that, you'll never un-see it. You're welcome 3

    I've been wanting a great white edition. I haven't seen one in person and that's probably a good thing. I also like the gray Samurai.

    I saw one at Macy's last weekend. It's even better in person.

    I'm thinking of cutting a few loose soon. The STO turtle and samurai, a Citizen BN0151 and Nighthawk, bunch of straps and bracelets...

    Me too. A Pogue is a must for me. Doesn't have to be original. I'm after the look.

    We had our monthly watch event last night and Breitling was the sponsor. I tried on one their new “Mosquito” models. This is a picture from this review.

    Loved the watch but the bezel is friction-only. I like clicks or stops personally but it’s not a show stopper if someone wants to gift it to me. :amazon

    Received a Zealande in the mail for Mr. Blake today. It is a nice edition. Their presentation is out of this world:

    Well, that is certainly worth a few seconds of vid clip to see her in action...

    Well crap, a modern Breitling I like. Didn't think that would happen.
    A 765 AVI is on my grail list.
    At half the price this could scratch that itch nicely.
