I like the look of it as well but have a quandary.

I know it's a new watch, based on a Vintage watch, which they have tried to make look Vintage, but it still looks new. (if you get my drift).

If you're going to do a new, vintage watch you should at least make it look Vintage as Laco do with their Erbstuck models.

One of which I tried on 18 months of so ago.

Just a thought.

Sadly Nick, no.

Row 92 is here, Dan Henry 1970 and Row 93 is set for mid-December in the guise of the Magrette MPP Kara.

There's nothing else. Except that finding the photo of the Laco Erbstuck has rekindled interest.

Perfect combination. :thumbup:

That strap would look good on your AT as well.

I've been mentally combining these two but keep thinking that the tall tooly German and a thick Nato might be a tad too high? So...

...I now have this on its way from P&G. Worth a try, me thinks.

If it links to a retirement sale I've just seen that's a fantastic price!
