    Well my friends... guess today is my lucky day. I just placed an order for a watch that has been on my wishlist since 2013. I will post some pics when it arrives.

    You'll know from this: It's an anniversary watch. :)

    How is it like to wear? I have a vintage Seiko Bullhead, and it's really an acquired taste.

    Yes, it absolutely is. At first, the position of the crown and pushers is a bit off putting, but once you wear it, you tend to get used to it quickly.

    The watch itself and the design is so well made and balanced that it makes everything come together. And the fact that it is the 50th Anniversary edition and that it is quite possibly the last direct product made with Jack Heuer's input is what makes it a must have for me.

    And of course, it is the companion piece to the Jack Heuer 80th Anniversary Edition. Companion.jpg

    It's new. They are still several out there, but I got such a great discount that I couldn't refuse. :)
