So after having missed out on a few pieces I was kind of a bit disappointed and started to contemplate what my options were. Then one morning while filling up on 86 regular it hit me...



The issues I have read and seen in pics didn't frighten me. These "defects" were few and far in between and I have complete confidence in OP doing the right thing should I unluckily wind up with one of these "unique" pieces. The brown alternative material casing was calling out to me. The 47mm size, 8 day movement and Marina Militare was just too much to resist.

The problem was there were no more to be had from the boutiques (my bro ZZ proved otherwise ). My only option was to hit the secondary market but there was always the threat of being ripped off or having the watch completely misrepresented and a myriad other scary scenarios. Undaunted I posted a WTB at the CM. Lemme tell you, it actually works! And after a few emails I landed myself a safe queen )))))



But of course, like a true Risti, a shoe change is mandatory. So after a few emails to a friend in Napa this arrived today...





A few wrist shots...









Now I think I need a French painted ammo strap...LOL. Thanks for making it this far.

Cheers!
