I managed to get to my dealer to pick up the Navigator. My dealer kindly put it in the safe at the start of August when I said 'that's mine!!' and we have been missing each other since due to holidays and work..but he kept it there for me.

I have always wanted a pilot's watch, the IWC is too big and too expensive for me and the other B-Urh's just don't cut it regards movement and finish. But when I first saw the GO's I knew it was right and the size is just perfecto!!

Anyway No.51 checks in

A great and traditional piece! And GO has learned its lesson ...

Several years ago, GO had issued a watch with this dial layout, the "Navigator I":

Originally, it was equipped with the cal. 10-30 movement, only a few were sold with the cal. 39. Unfortunately, it had the wrong hour hand, which is very apparent in the pic above. Maybe to save costs, this model had the same hands as the "Navigator II", which was the standard pilot watch layout with the small date at 3. The historical pieces, the hour hand of course was not longer than the inner circle with the hour markers. And I was happy to see that GO now uses the correct hour hands for the re-edition.

Regards,
Marcus

. . . new G O . . . I tried this model on last month and was smitten instantly. I usually don't care for larger watches but this one seems to work on my puny wrist, and it's definitely on my shortlist. Please let us know how well it runs after it breaks in . . . . cordially, Art

What a great watch and how lucky you are!

This is definately my next GO timepiece. I never have the chance to put it on my wrist but I believe its 42mm size will not be a problem to me.

Wearing it with your smile
