    Thanks Martin


    I had the hardest time trying to size the expansion bracelet this afternoon

    Incredible how hard for these things to fit properly it's maddening, really.

    Of course, I took too many "links" off, so now the bracelet is a bit too tight

    I almost purchased one of those a couple of weeks ago. Only two things kept me from doing it. The dial was all black. It didn't have the silver interior border like yours. Secondly, even though it's a skeleton face, it would have been nice to see the balance wheel from the front of the watch but it looked to be covered up judging by the seller's pictures. I couldn't find any others over the following week but by then the one I was looking at was gone.

    I'm surprised how fast those went out of stock

    Only two weeks after I bought mine, I realized the only available versions were the gold case one, and then, they were gone too

    Limited editions can really be limited, I guess

    When I saw the original thread, I knew I had to get one. The available models were the black dial and the rose gold. It was tough to decide which one to buy, so I didn't. I bought both.

    The expansion bracelet is too cool not to copy. (sorry, Reno) I have one that will look good, but it has the wrong ends. When I find the right ones...

    I saw both colours of cases on taobao recently, both with black dials and silver/white dials (I can't tell which). One of the listings said the watch has been discontinued.

    No problem ! In my mind, that's how a Ventura should look

    Hi TJB,

    Yes, they seem to be hard to find nowadays

    No model number on mine, just a SN. Sorry.
