I first saw it there about 2010, about a year after I bought my Seiko Sportiva Macchina Giugiaro from them.

Admittedly it is in superb condition.

He'll only sell it at what he considers the right price. I couldn't get 1p off the LV and that took a while to sell after my visit. That was okay with me as I knew it wasn't really for me in any case, but I thought I'd ask!

Ditto! Got the white version from Jura and this has been returned and I will be getting one of these instead. What a watch and for the money (along with GS) they give you so much.

Possibly my favourite looking watch ever.

This for me at 38mm is just gorgeous. I owned a 356 for a week before returning it due to an error with the movement. At the time I thought it had more long term qualities than my speedy:

I also like it but it's a little too small and too expensive at retail, notwithstanding that it's a limited edition for Japan so hard to find.

Like London Buses; none for a while and then several at once . . . .

. . . .the newly released (today) Elliot Brown Tyneham; automatic with power reserve, 41mm (suitable for most), styling cues from their Canford and I love it.
