I get it now!
I get it now!
Well, it finally came today. Unfortunately I wasn't home to sign for it. I had to go to the post office and pick it up. But it was worth it. Initial impression very nice piece. Strap is a lighter gray than I thought it would be, the pics I saw of it made it almost look black. And it is almost too small for my wrist. I re-measured my wrist and it is actually 8 inches. I always wondered why all straps seemed a little small.
Size-wise the watch is 42mm with 20mm lugs. Lug to lug is 51mm, height is 13mm. It's advertised as being 12mm.
I'm posting a few pics. The wrist shot isn't the best. I'm posting one with it next to my Airboss Mechanical.
This is a really nice watch, I hope the rest of you will like it also.
I actually ordered one myself earlier today but there was a little hiccup with using PayPal and it won't get straightened out until Monday. No problem, I can see from you pictures that it will be worth the wait. It looks absolutely stunning in that side-by-side photo. I quite like the strap too; grey is a really good fit for this watch. So Lenny, what size is your wrist? You look like you might have a big set of ham hocks there. The Miyota Black looks to be a perfect fit for you.
While I'm waiting for my watch, I'm going to start looking for a nice grey strap for it, something that's a little distressed, and based on your comments, a little longer too.

I measured them again after seeing someone else saying they have 7.5 inch wrist with their strap past the 3rd hole. I measured 8 inches. Uwe, are you going to get the 36mm or 42?So Lenny, what size is your wrist? You look like you might have a big set of ham hocks there. The Miyota Black looks to be a perfect fit for you.

Hey congrats, it looks good!
I found out from Laco that lug-to-lug on the 36mm ETA model is 41.8mm. Too small for my taste.

Hey Uwe, glad to hear that you got one as well. Congrats to you and Lenny0264 -- that makes three of us then! Last night I checked on the Laco online shop and it seems their inventory has been sold out.
Anyways, after a three day wait, the FEDEX man delivered this:
I didn't expect the gray strap to be as light-colored, as the tone doesn't work for me. I'm thinking of using the spare black strap from my Miyota B, or probably try for a black Bund. For now I have it on a NATO:
Here's a lume shot:
And finally, a family pic:
Congrats Kubelwagen! Like you I think I'm going to change out the strap. Not only because the gray is lighter than I thought, but it's too small for me. I think I'm going to go with something black. Freda has a heavy leather sport I think would look good.
You've got a good wrist shot there. At least the strap fits you better than me. Enjoy!
