Now that I've had a chance to catch my breathe.... Part 3

Now that I've had a chance to catch my breathe....

After Eddie's and Yas' post on PAM 449, I was hoping that luck will come my way. Since SIHH 2012, I always want this particular piece and after 1 year wait, my dream piece has just arrived today. Very excited as we never know whether we will get it or not. But this is really dream come true for me, let the picture do the talking:


Actually it should arrive yesterday, then I found out that the address is wrong and returned undelivered to the depo. So I arrange to pick up this Saturday morning because I can't wait until Monday because it means another 2 days waiting.

Not sure why it came without the outer box:

There it is, woohoo! You beauty!

First wristshot, it looks big!

Killer dial, killer engraving, sandwich dial... Definetely better in flesh than in picture.

Now, decision... decision... I think I'll go with the dark brown one

If you come this far, thank you very much. I hope that for you who are still waiting for your dream piece, keep the hope alive. I hope that luck will come to you like what happened to me.


Cheers.

Congrats, Bobby!

Well, I wanted to see you acting like we did... happy.gif

Hope that someone would do the part 4.

BTW, what kind of strap is that? - the two straps on the right hand side in the last picture?
- Kevin's ammo?

Cheers,

yas

Strap...

February 9 2013, 6:33 AM 

Hi Yas,

Thank you!
I think I'm too excited to take photo of myself, hahaha...
The tan strap is Kevin ammo, the dark brown is Indoristi GTG 2012 strap.

May I have your suggestion on a good strap combo?

Hi Bobby,

Seems like the dark brown is that many people prefer...
