Fresh meat! I mean METAL.

The Sealander is in. Just TWO days door/door across the Atlantic. The CW/DHL Combo works its magic yet again.

It's a beauty indeed and it's new friend, the Cream dial, is a perfect match of course. A quick swap to bracelet and it shows how amazing it is. 39mm of sports watch perfection! (Cameo pics throughout of the Creamlander).

I just hate wearing lovely pristine watch straps with tang buckles. Your camel strap looks brand new. I just don't like to see those creases forming. It's such a shame, but I swap in a folding clasp of some sort.

The white one looks nice but for me the cream is on another level despite the asymmetry and lack of orange. I'm strangely glad to hear it will be safely left at home!

Enjoy your trip and I look forward to reading how the Sealander performs :)

First mission for the Sealander. The treacherous task called the “honey-do-list”. 😱

Drop off at dry cleaners. Shopping returns at UPS. Quick stop at the garden center to pick up a new umbrella for our party on Monday. More shopping returns at Whole Foods. A stop at the grocery store for burger buns. Finally, Dunkin’ Donuts to pick up some cold drinks to combat the 90F heat. Finally, the pay off. AAHHH, that is a nice cold drink!

The Sealander performed flawlessly of course 👍😝🔱

Regardless of the time of day, if I’m stopping at Dunkies, I have to get a Boston Cream. It’s a fundamental law of nature for me.

How do you find legibility on the white Sealander? The indices have more of a bevelled / raised edge than the C60 ones so it looks like the silver doesn't blend into the dial.

It’s excellent. No problems finding the hands any time.

The Cream got its bracelet back because the White got its own bracelet in yesterday!

It just works :)

I know the Sealander looks the business especially on the camel vintage oak strap but the bracelet is just a killer look 8)

I love all things green and was lucky enough to pick up the Sealander 63 in green during the sale. Think I've made a big mistake now looking at how crisp the white looks. Can't decide whether to keep it or return it and pay the extra for the white.
